    similar error


    i made it, and after the reboot of course i tried to mount the cd ... unsucessfully
    the message now is very similar to the old one, just the last words are different:
    (in spanish)

    No se pudo montar el dispositivo.
    El mensaje de error fue:
    mount: /dev/cdrom: no es un dispositivo de bloques válido

    i would translate the last words as
    "it's not a valid blocks device"
    but i'm not sure about the word blocks ...

    what do you think?

    Now that's strange; that really should have worked. It's almost as if it didn't want to load sr_mod properly. Run these commands (as root) and check the output:
    Code:
    ls -l /dev/scd0
    modprobe sr_mod
    tail /var/log/messages
    cat /proc/devices

    Jorge,

    What did I tell you about this forum? I pretty much knew that Dolda would be the one solving your problem. I think it's safe to say that he solves around 95% of the problems posted on this forum. What will we ever do if he decided not to sign on...

    :-)

    yes, we know each other ...

    i also wanted to ask: you know each other? :-O

    i told you that an expert had tried to help me with my problem; he was it, and forwarded me to the forum ... cause he knew you would solve my problem

    well ... a big THANKS to both of you; and, again: if you ever have a problem where i could help (certainly not a linux problem...) , something about Spain u wanna know or whatever, feel free to ask.

    Best wishes for both,

    Jorge

    I'm no expert. I just tried to help him out with the way I fixed my problem. Dolda on the other hand definetly IS an expert.
