Infomagic CD installation, panasonic CD-rom mount error

Post by Dr. W » Wed, 09 Nov 1994 12:04:53

Please Help,

     I am trying to install Infomagic's Oct release through a Panasonic
controlled by a 16bit sound card.

     My boot disk was built using the sbpcd.gz

     In setup script, I've try the following steps
  -> install from CD-ROM
  -> Sound Blaster Pro (panasonic) [ /dev/sbpcd ]
  -> distribution/slackare    InfoMagic CD-ROM

 then the cd-rom is lite up and trying to do a mount, from another virtual
 terminal, a ps command telling me the system is doing a

 mount -o ro -t iso9660 /dev/sbpcd /var/adm/mount

 the cd-rom is ejceted and setup script telling me there is a mount error

 I was trying to mount the cdrom manually, given the above mount command
 I got the following error message:
 mount:wrong fs type, /dev/sbpcd already mounted,
 /var/adm/mount busy, or other error

 I am getting stuck, Please help

1. Linux from Nascent CD-ROM won't mount my panasonic cd-rom drive

        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.
