error loading cdrom
i just go a new laptop, and didnt even boot it, i just loaded slackware on it, installed fine. the desktop and all apps installed correctly, it seems like sounds is working fine also
I could not test it. When i loaded a cdrom, the machine acted like it ran it, but when I go to mount /dev/cdrom or the device iteself I get an error
any ideas. I rebooted the pc, made sure i was not in the directory, tried to mount to /mnt/cdrom. But no cigar.
Can you post the exact statement you are executing as well as the exact error message?"Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so."

in slackware you have to be root to access the cdrom
<should have contents>
Hope this helps
MikeSome people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

rather than using the /dev/cdrom have you tried the local defaults
for example on _most_ laptops you will have /dev/hdc = cdrom drive.
Personally on my NX7000 HP I have to use mount /dev/scd0 because I use the IDE-SCSI functionality so that I can use the burning functionality of the drive. That works all the time. I have not used /dev/cdrom though.
