        Hi All,

I "upgraded" Redhat 5.0 to RH5.1 from CDROM-drive.
After rebooting I cannot mount the same CDrom  again. Mount complains:

        iso9660 not supported by kernel???

Please tell me if you know how to fix this?!
(OR AT least could somebody please telle me how I could "downgrade"
back to RH5.0, which worked fine :-)

I appreaciate any help,

set the right link in /lib/modules and cdrom and net card will work
correctly.

I just upgraded from 4.2 to 5.1.  Same problem.

It can't find the modules.dep file in /lib/modules at boot up.
Update the kernelcfg and initscripts rpms.
At boot up watch for a message about modules.dep
With the new rpms it was looking for /lib/modules/2.0.34/modules.dep
I went into 2.0.34-0.6 and executed "depmod -a -v"
In /lib/modules I made a new symbolic link:
ln -s 2.0.34-0.6 2.0.34

Reboot.  It works great now, it fixed a few other problems as well.
Are we having fun yet?

Quote:> [kernel forgets about iso 9660]

I had the same problem when I tried to use loadlin. The only solution I
found was to ditch loadlin and go back to lilo.

Due to the fact that I have a way-obsolete IDE CDROM drivem I also had
to add the following boot-time option:

        fdc=cdrom

You can do this from the LILO boot prompt, or you can add it in
/etc/lilo.conf (in which case you don't have to.)

HTH,

  I have just installed RH 5.1 on my machine and although the CDROM
(iso9660) does not initially mount on startup, I got to mount in X.  Go to
Administration (this is under AfterStep) and File Management (or something
like that).  From there you get a dialog box showing your various storage
devs with buttons containing 'mount', 'unmount', format and so on.  Just
look for cdrom and mount it.  Mounting in character mode should be just as
easy, however, I have not tried that yet.

Hope it helps you out

1. mount /mnt/cdrom ==> mount: the kernel does not recognize /dev/cdrom as a block device

Hello,

I'm in trouble again.   My cdrom on RH6.0 used to mount using command-line
or linuxconf.

Now suddenly its stopped working -   when I try to mount using  "mount
/mnt/cdrom"  I
get rebuffed with :

   #mount  /mnt/cdrom
     mount:  the kernel does not recognize /dev/cdrom as a block device
                    (maybe 'insmod driver'? )

# insmod iso9660
    insmod:  iso9660: no module by that name found.

Linuxconf tells me its mounted successfully but obviously is failing in the
background.

It is unfortunate for me that Linux is giving me these problems as I am only
a beginner
really.   sigh!

thanks for expert advice...
