    Problem mounting CDs in CD-ROM drive in Free BSD


    As a normal user, when trying to mount a normal CD (In this case, one of the ports CDs from the prefab package) I get an error message.

    Could not mount device.
    This error was:
    cd9660: /dev/acd0: Operation not permitted.
    I can mount it in Konsole using su. But get another error when trying to view in Konqueror.
    The process for the media protocol died unexpectedly.
    ________________________[OK]________________
    Anything that would clear that up from http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO...ER-FLOPPYMOUNT , the usermount portion of the freebsd.org site, that could help me out?

    The system won't use an audio CD at all right now, and I don't want to try a DVD. I tried a disk I burned with K3B in Linux and it said it didn't recognize the file type.

    You might want to try changing permission by

    #chmod 666 /dev/acd0

    BSD mount command can only mount a few file systems. These are some mount commands for other file systems

    mount_cd9660
    mount_devfs
    mount_ext2fs
    mount_fdescfs
    mount_linprocfs
    mount_mfs
    mount_msdosfs
    mount_nfs
    mount_nfs4
    mount_ntfs
    mount_nullfs
    mount_nwfs
    mount_portalfs
    mount_procfs
    mount_smbfs
    mount_std
    mount_udf

    If you mount it using su, konqueror necesarrily won't have the right permisions to read from the CD. I think you can change the ownership like the previous guy said to make your user mounting it, and I belive it can be done permanent in /etc/devfs.conf or something like that.

    Actually I've distro hopped to PC-BSD.
    Yeah, I'm a real loyalist. But no mounting problems in it for me.

    I'm having trouble with a port though, if I can be free enough to ask without me making another topic.

    I went to install xmame from ports. It flopped out on me.
    I went to make install again and it just tells me It's broken.

    Is there a way I can get it to let me re-try to install it?

    Yup. Tried that.
    Code:
    xmame-0.100 is marked as broken:  Networking support is currently broken.
    No idea what to do to fix it, because I'm still a BSD newbie.

    if you *really* want to try to install the port, edit the Makefile and comment out the BROKEN= line by putting a # in front of it. then run 'make install clean'
    Their code will be beautiful, even if their desks are buried in 3 feet of crap. - esr

    The system won't use an audio CD at all right now, and I don't want to try a DVD. I tried a disk I burned with K3B in Linux and it said it didn't recognize the file type.
    In case anyone is seeing symptoms like the original problem here, and isn't interested in leaving FreeBSD, I can explain what worked for me when I was having this problem.

    This may or may not work for others, depending on their hardware. I have a Samsung DVD+RW, and I could never seem to mount cds properly that were burned in Linux or Windows. I corrected this by building the ATAPI/CAM driver into a custom kernel.

    Details here: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO....html#ATAPICAM
