CDROM Problem: "mount point /cdrom does not exist"

Post by VINNIE_POLYCHRONAK » Wed, 02 Nov 1994 07:10:32



Could somebody help with the problem in subject line?
Below is what I type and the system's response along with the
root directory which shows that /cdrom does, in fact, exist.
I just installed slackware 2.0.2 with XFree 3.1 on an intel P5-90, PCI
machine with a AHA1542CF scsi interface, a DEC DSP 3160 scsi disk and a Toshiba
XM-3401B CDROM drive. (#9GXE64 and a Nanao monitor).
DOS can see the cdrom. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance,
--Ven.  

bash# mount /dev/sr0 -t iso9660 /cdrom
mount: mount point /cdrom does not exist
bash# ls /
bin         cern        etc         lost+found  root        usr
boot        dev         home        mnt         sbin        var
cdrom       dosc        lib         proc        tmp         vmlinuz

Try mount -t iso9660 -r /dev/sr0 /cdrom
Make sure /dev/sr0 is in your /etc/fstab

I had the same problem. Found that the sr0/sr1 devices did not exist
under Slack 2.02. Added a link between /dev/sr0 and /dev/scd0 and everything
works fine now.

Cheers,

Terry

Subject: Bug_in_Linux Developer's Resource (Installation)
Problem: Will not mount SCSI CDROM
Equipment: Adaptec 1542 & Toshiba 3301

Description: The 'Setup' program found on the SCSINET/COLOR 'Boot/Root'
disks on your CD has an error. When the CD-ROM dialog choice appears there
is no option for "sr0", although there is a prompt to select it. Instead
the only choice for SCSI is scd0 or scd1 which do not work.

Workaround: I used the 'SCSINET/COLOR144' Boot/Root set from my old v1.0.9
that was downloaded from tsx11.mit.edu. The setup program gave the options
sr0 or sr1 which work.....and a warning that scd0/scd1 might not work.

1. Another SB-16 problem << MOUNT POINT \cdrom DOES NOT EXIST >>

I have a strange problem...I just bought RH 2.1 (the 1.2.13 kernel),
installed the software, and everything went pretty smoothly, X-windows,
(the mouse was not installed correctly though, but I fixed that), etc.

The SB-16 CD-ROM (an old one, about two years old) was found by the
kernel at 0x230, and that is one of the reasons I could install the
kernel from the CD....

I followed everything in the CDROM-HOWTO, bought two books on Linux
installation, and yet when I went to mount the CD-ROM with

"mount -t iso9660 -r /dev/cdrom /cdrom"

the lights on the CD-ROM flashed, the CD-ROM changer doors closed,
the CD was being read, and just after 3 seconds, the CD-ROM spits
out the CD (it doesn't matter what the CD is, Slackware, RH 2.1,
anything!) and says:

"mount point \cdrom does not exist"

Now, I even went into sbpcd.h and changed some configuration
parameters and recompiled the kernel, and it still doesn't work.
So what am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.
