error loading cdrom
Hello all, I got an problem loading my cdrom after install of slackware 10
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? 8)
in slackware you have to be root to access the cdrom
<should have contents>
Hope this helps
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.
