Unable to mount filesystem from the Install CD: permission denied ( are you root )
I am trying yet again to rescue a kfreebsd 6.0 system with the testing
CD image from this week, I came to the following problems
( All of this happeing in QEMU accessing a USB stick where the installed
OS is )
1. mounting the root filesystem
When trying to acess the root filesystem from the installer shell I get:
mount -t ufs /dev/ad0s1 /mnt
mount:permission denied ( are you root )
I can dd from the ad0 device so I am puzzled by the message.
2. Selecting a keyboard device:
When trying to set the keyboard on the console from install CD I get
Inapropriate ioctl for device
3. Is this OK to post such non-dev questions on this list ?
I see here mainly comments on BTS bugs, I don't want to be out of topic :)
