CD autorun scripts for FC3 or any other new linux distros


Hello group,

I have a problem creating a CD autorun script for linux. I have created a sample autorun file and placed it on the CD for testing. The contents of the file are as follows :

#!/bin/sh
dir=$(echo $0 |sed 's/autorun//')
cd $dir
fullpath=$(pwd)
exec konqueror $fullpath/default.html

But this script is not exectuted once i insert a CD into the drive. However, if i run the script from the terminal it works just fine.

I need to tackle this situation and need help.

Thank All of You.

you need to edit /etc/fstab.
Change the line with the cdrom entr to exec. I am using debian so in FC3 it looks maybe different.
/dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 ro,user,noauto,exec 0 0

This should solve your problem.
