I’ve looked through previous posts on this topic and the advice I found was to run dmesg | grep cdrom to find out where my cdrom is plugged in (hdb) and I tried symlinking /dev/dcrom to /dev/hdb. However, in the course of my experimenting I did rm –rf on the /cdrom directory, which I believe was where my cd drive was mounted. And I’m not sure what I need to do next to get things back in order.
The /etc/fstab file states that /dev/cdrom is mounted on /cdrom but I’m not sure what to do to get it re-mounted (if indeed it is unmounted)
Any help would be appreciated. My problem is high level enough that I’ve not been very effective with my google searches.
