Thread: CD-RW drive install

  1. #11

    Re:CD-RW drive install

    and oh yea - a link (symbolic) would be over writing the file - kinda like creating a file that exists. the i see you also made a block device called /dev/cdrom - this should be a link to the real cd device, i.e. /dev/scd0 if you have one cd drive

    Re:CD-RW drive install

    ughhh here is what happened:
    Code:
    [root@furio root]# mount /dev/scd0
    mount: /dev/scd0 is not a valid block device
    [root@furio root]# mount /mnt/cdr
    mount: /dev/scd0 is not a valid block device
    I did exactly what you said. Maybe I missed something. I'll show you my stuff...
    fstab line:
    Code:
    /dev/scd0               /mnt/cdr                auto    noauto,owner,rw        0 0
    Now I also tried replacing /dev/scd0 with /dev/cdrom but got the same error.
    Code:
    [root@furio root]# ls -l /dev/scd0
    brw-------    1 redhat     disk      11,   0 May  6 21:21 /dev/scd0
    [root@furio root]# ls -l /dev/cdrom
    lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root            9 May  6 21:21 /dev/cdrom -> /dev/scd0
    [root@furio root]# ls -l /dev/hdc
    brw-------    1 redhat     disk      22,   0 Jan 30 05:24 /dev/hdc
    Miss anything? The drive is on hdc - should that be linked to anything? Also I just noticed that /dev/scd0 and /dec/hdc aren't owned by root - could that be the problem? Thanks

    Re:CD-RW drive install

    Just a shot in the dark, but my CD-RW is at /dev/sr0.

    Perhaps try that?

    No, I get the same thing, this time,
    mount: /dev/sr0 is not a valid block device

    (after deleting and creating sr0 with mknod)

    Re:CD-RW drive install

    hello,
    try mount /mnt/cdr instead of /mnt/scd0

    /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0

    is this redhat ?

    pb, I've done everything you said. On startup when it says updating fstab, it gives a "failed" and says cannot stat /dev/cdrom, no such file. Here's my /dev/cdrom:
    Code:
    ls -l /dev/cdrom
    lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root            8 May  6 22:24 /dev/cdrom -> /dev/sd0
    So it does exist, it's just pointing to sd0. What should it be pointing or not pointing to? And BTW, i've made those revisions to my fstab and yes I use RedHat.

    Re:CD-RW drive install

    hello,
    that should be scd0 - not sd0

    you can create a link to a file that does not exist, if you have color in you terminal it will show up as red.

    and oh yea, that line in my previous post is the entry from my fstab

    Re:CD-RW drive install

    arghhhhhhhhh

    It's still saying mount: /dev/cdrom is not a valid block device

    Here's my /dev/cdrom after I changed it:
    Code:
    [root@furio root]# ls -l /dev/cdrom
    lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root            9 May  6 23:08 /dev/cdrom -> /dev/scd0
    ???

    Re:CD-RW drive install

    okay - now i am suspecting not all of your modules are loading correctly - did you recompile your kernel?


    try this:
    depmod -a

    then do a lsmod and see what modules are loaded

    btw - do you have aim? i am pbharris359

    Re:CD-RW drive install

    I do recompile my kernel a lot. I'll look in my config and see if I can find anything fishy. Meanwhile, here's my modules:
