i've got a slight problem...
when i installed my gentoo linux i started working on it right away to get some stuff working. then my intrnet at home broke so i left linux for a while. later when i got back to it i noticed that my cdrom were both down!
ive checked the cdroms and they're fine as well as fstab.
what should i do
P.S ill try to post any files any files you'd like to see.
cdroms were down in the sense you could not mount them?
can you post any error messages that you get??
I aint home so i cant post an exact error message but i know that it complained about that it couldnt find any mountpoints for the cdroms and something else...i think.
i've checked fstab, mtab and some other *tab. As far as i know the fstab's alright (sorry havn't configured any other *tabs).
are you sure you have the mount points for the cdrom that you specified in fstab??
example: /mnt/cdrom ???
yeah...make sure you have the directory /mnt/cdrom else it will complain...and try mounting it again.
well these are my two cdrom lines in fstab:
/dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto, ro, user, unhide 0 0
/dev/cdroms/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom2 iso9660 noauto, ro, user, unhide 0 0
the first one is a dvdplayer, but that shouldnt make any difference.
the second is a cd-rw which i want to be able to write with...
P.S. am i correct that all mounting stuff is defined in fstab?
fstab is used to automount drives at boot and to define how to mount drives if you just specify the drive or directory on the mount command line.. you can override the options in fstab with the mount command line.. AFAIK fstab is a set of guidelines, not set in stone rules..
Is that exactly how it says in your fstab? In that case it's no wonder it doesn't work. The mount options are not allowed to be seperated by spaces.
no, it's separated by "tab-taps". its just that i didnt type em out, sorry.
i checked the errormsg yesterday, and just as i said before it complains about "mountpoint does not exist".
I have been having a problem also.
I can mount CDs and Windows hard drive under root but not any other user.
I am guessing it is a permission thing but can't figure out how to change it.
