Unable to mount cd under user account [Still unsolved =(]
I have no clue what to do with this. While under root, it auto-mounts cd's with no problem at all. But when I'm logged into my user account, it won't mount at all. After running the mount command, even under superuser, I get
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdc,
or too many mounted file systems
I've checked permissions, and they're alright. I've added the user to the different user groups (yes, I have added it to the cdrom group), as suggested by other people. I'm running a Sarge install, 2.6.8-1-386 kernel, on an Averatec 3200 laptop. Here's my fstab:
Add the group you want to the visudoers file with something like this:
%group ALL=NOPASSWD: /sbin/mount /cdrom,/sbin/umount /cdrom
then just type mount /cdrom as a user. You might have to type sudo mount /cdrom until you have rebooted.
