Re: Newbie question on cdrom..

I assume your running scsi emulation on hdc. this would change it from hdc to sr0

ln -sf /dev/sr0 /dev/cdrom

should fix it.

Another one.

Debian with 2.6.5-kernel (from Knoppix-3.4, distrubution testing?).

The entry in /etc/fstab is:

	/dev/dvd /dvd iso9660 defaults,ro,user,noexec,noauto 0 0

so no entry for /dev/cdrom (?).

1. /dev/dvd is a link to /dev/cdrom
2. no /dev/cdrom entry
3. cdrom is detected as hdc, also seen as sr0 (in dmesg)
4. /mnt/cdrom is link to /mnt/auto/cdrom
   (no entries /mnt/auto at all)
5. /dev/sr0 is link to /dev/scd0
6. /dev/sdc0 does exist!

Is there no concept like supermount (a la Mandrake)?

So, to access cdrom it has to be mounted (as su) used and dismounted?
    (#mount /dev/scd0 /mnt
     #umount /mnt
	do seem to work)

Any ideas?
