No acces to CD drive in Gentoo 2006.0 (RESOLVED)

Posted 06-03-2006 at 04:46 AM by luiz1

After installing gentoo 2006.0 for the first time
I realized that I didnt have access to my DVD-RAM drive
so this si what I did

opened a terminal ( xterm) and as root
I did

mkdir /mnt/dvd /This folder doesnt exist in gentoo so you have to creat it
vi /etc/fstab / You have to edit your /fstab file since the one Gentoo creates
>only declares essetial boot devices e.g: HD, /boot, etc

/dev/hdc /mnt/dvd ext2,udf,iso9660 noatime,noauto,users,rw 0 0

NOTE: I added this line at the bottom of the file.

NOTE- DVD-RAM : To write DVD-RAM's you NEED to have "noatime" in the fstab
or else the dvd-ram will age very rapidly
If you have a CD-RW you need to adjust settings accordingly to
your device

POSSIBLE PROBLEMS= if you dont make /mnt/dvd you will recieve an error message
saying " /mnt/dvd is not a directory "


I hope this helps someone.
