Have you added a line in your /etc/fstab ? ...type "man fstab" to reveal all.
/dev/hdb /cdrom iso9660 user,noauto,ro 1 1
have you tried to mount the drive for the first time?
make a directory in your root dir (eg mkdir /cdrom) then type:
mount -t iso9660 -r /dev/hdd /cdrom
If you get bad medicine soo far you might have to recompile the kernel to be
custom configured for your system (this is easier than it sounds - just
print the documention out and read,read,read)
: I installed yggdrasils linux from a cd and everything seemed to go well. Then when I rebooted
: it wouldn't detect the cdrom so nothing works and I can't install anything. I also updated
: the kernel to the one I was able to install off of. The cdrom is an Atapi ide cdrom which is
: connected to hdd.
: Any help would be appreciated
Hi, I just bought the Linux from Nascent CD-ROM and have been attempting
to install it on my 486DX2/66 machine. I have a cardex SVGA card using a
Cirrus chipset and 1 meg of video ram. I have 16 megs of 60-ns memory. I also
have a local bus IDE hard drive controller (32-bit) running two 340-meg
western digital hard drives. Oh, the video is local bus, too. I also have
an IOMEGA floptical drive, as well as the almost expected 3.5" and 5.25"
floppies. I also have a Soundblaster 16 sound card that is driving my CD-drive,
the setup that comes together in a multimedia pack, I forget the exact name,
but it is a fairly standard one. It is a Panasonic cd-drive by the way.
A panasonic 54- something I think. When I boot and root my way into Linux,
It won't mount my cd-drive. Since the program files are all on CD, that
means I can't install. I followed the instructions for fixing this problemm
in the manual, i.e. "mknod /dev/sbpcd b 25 0"
"ln -fs /dev/sbpcd /dev/cdrom"
This looked fine, but when I rebooted, Linux still wouldn't mount my drive.
I even tried getting new root and boot images via anonymous FTP and rawrite.
No dice. Does anyone have any ideas? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
