    Finding /media/cdrom equivalent


    I am trying to do the create DVD from CDs on for SUSE 10.0. It says pick the dir for the 5 cds. They suggest media/cdrom. I do not have this dir. All i have in media is:
    bmp_audio_cd
    dvdrecorder
    xmms_audio_cd
    I have a cd/dvd burner drive in my HP laptop.
    When I insert a CD (for example CD 1 of suse 10.0) a new folder appears in media called SU10000_001. What would be my equivalent to media/cdrom/ as SUSE suggests is the most common?
    Thanks

    Did you check /media for directories?

    bmp_audio_cd
    dvdrecorder
    xmms_audio_cd
    and SU1000_001

    Then just create it: # mkdir /media/cdrom

    I do not believe that will work. I am using this guide:
    http://www.opensuse.org/Making_a_DVD_from_CD's
    and I am running this from CD's instead of 5 ISOs (not enough room).
    Teh guide says this:

    CD's instead of ISO files
    makeSUSEdvd -c CD's will be used instead of ISO's. You will be asked to enter the place where the CD's are mounted/ Standard is /media/cdrom.

    I read this as meaning that /media/cdrom is a place where people normally mount there cdrom drives. You don't have this in /media so you should create it just like borromini said
    Code:
    su -
    <your password>
    mkdir /media/cdrom
    exit

    But when I load the CD it won't appear in that directory jsut because i made it. So when it asks for the dir of the CDs, the media/cdrom will not work because my CDs load as there own thin within my /media directory. I believe

    You are right. But you have to add it to your /etc/fstab, and then when you mount cd's, it will be mounted there.
