    Can only access CD-ROM as root


    Hey everyone --
    So the deal is, I'm running Debian Woody and I can't seem to get my cd-rom permissions right. I have this line in the fstab:

    /dev/cdrom /cdrom iso9660 ro,user,noauto 0 0

    And I'm a member of the group "cdrom". I can access the drive fine when I'm root, but when I'm not I get mad errors. Any ideas?

    If you post the errors, people may be able to help, could be a number of things. I assume you are a member of users group aswell as cdrom?

    mine

    mine looks like this
    split the sections out to show where the spaces are
    /dev/cdrom
    /mnt/cdrom
    udf,iso9660
    noauto,owner,ro
    0
    0

    dunno if that helps - probably not.

    Methinks user should read users. Least that's what I did with Woody. If that fails chmod /dev/cdrom to 666 or summat like that
