    are you mounting it in the console? KDE uses its own mounting method I think/expect

    Code:
    mount /mnt/cdrom
    ls /mnt/cdrom

    on a previous install of slackware 10.2 was no problem. cdrom was mounted as default under console. know how to make it permanent?

    thx

    I doubt it was mounted all the time

    you want to find out your cdrom device (dmesg | grep hd), then edit your /etc/fstab to use that device instead of the wrong device it is using now.
