    Trouble with mac/windows disc


    I have a DVD of World of Warcraft. The DVD comes with both OSX and Windows binaries. I installed cedega, went to install WoW, and came across a problem. Linux recognizes the OSX partition on the cd, and mounts that. I need to mount the windows version. How do I tell mount to look for a different part of the CD?

    I've had this trouble too with Warcraft 3. What I had to do was manually unmount the Mac disc and mount the disc myself. If you do this it will mount the Win32 version of the disc.

    How did you mount it? when I mount it again it just remounts the mac one. Do I need to do a magic flag or something?

    You shouldn't. In fact, you need a "magic flag" to mount the Mac disc because it uses a different file system (HFS) than regular PC CDROMs (iso9660). Are you mounting/unmounting from the command line or GUI? I'm talking about command line here.

    Code:
    umount /mnt/MacDisc
    mount /mnt/cdrom cdrom

    I mounted it just like that, and still get the mac part.
    umount /mnt/cdrom
    mkdir cdrom
    mount /dev/cdrom cdrom #fails unknown filesystem type 'udf'

    I've also tried mount -t iso9660, which mounts the mac part I've also tried mount -t iso9660 -o session=2 which should get the 2nd session and see the windows part, I would think.

    Are there any tools to look at the structure of a CD?

    Hmm. Well, it worked for me, so I don't know what to tell you. Stick around, maybe someone else can help.
