RedHat 5.1 kernel doesn't support mounting CD_ROMs or FAT32?

RedHat 5.1 kernel doesn't support mounting CD_ROMs or FAT32?

Post by Metro M » Thu, 20 Aug 1998 04:00:00



When I tried to mount the Win98 Fat32 partition, by typing:

        mount /dev/hda1 /mnt -t vfat, or
        mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt,

RedHat 5.1 Linux returns: fs type vfat not supported by kernel.

When I tried to mount a CD-ROM, by typing:

        mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom,

RedHat 5.1 Linux returns: fs type iso9660 not supported by kernel.

Recompile your kernel with support for vfat and iso9660.  The redhat
manual will tell you how to do this.  Try to read the kernel howto
first.
