: Hi all!
: I have got the following Problem :
: Atempting to mount /dev/mcd to /cdrom by using iso9660
: there appears the message :
: "/mcd is already mounted or busy or other error"
: But the device is not mounted yet !
: During the installation it has ben mounted by using
: mount -t iso9660 /dev/mcd /cdrom
: Why doesn't it work anymore ?
The error messages from mount are very uninformative. Note that the message
says 'or some other error'. I seem to remember hearing that there are newer
versions of mount that are more helpful.
The command you show works for me. I have kernel 1.1.14 with the Mitsumi
speed patches from Unifix. On my system the device has a different name,
and I use a different mount directory. Doing 'ls -al' on /dev/mitsumi_cd
brw-r--r-- 1 root system 23, 0 Apr 21 1994 /dev/mitsumi_cd
i.e. a block device with major number 23, minor number 0. You could
od -ahb /dev/mcd
to test whether the device is readable at all.
You should give more information about your setup, and check the boot messages
for Mitsumi errors. Does your kernel know the interrupt number of your
drive, or is it getting it wrong, for example. The kernel cannot detect
the interrupt number automatically, so you need to recompile with the correct
value, or use boot parameters in Lilo.
