can't mount cd-rom... iso9660 is not listed in /proc/filesystems
 
Hi happy hackers,

I have a problem mounting my cd-r. I just installed it and now I'm trying to mount it. "mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /cdrom" gives "mount: unknown filesystem type 'iso9660'". Checking /proc/filesystems and notice that iso9660 is not listed.

So what should I do next? How can I check that linux finds my cd-rom. How can I check if the drivers are correct? Can I add iso9660 to /proc/filesystems?

just try mount /dev/cdrom and see what happens.

hi anti_microsoft,

"mount /dev/cdrom" shows "mount: unknown filesystem type 'iso9660'"

Did you recompile the kernel? The support for filesystems is built into the kernel and I would not understand why it would not work with a stock kernel.

Yes, the kernel is recompiled. I guess that the person who did it left the cd-support since it was unnecessary. But perhaps I can load a module with cd-support?

I justed noticed "mkfs". Can I do something with this?

See, if whoever compiled the kernel would have let it be a loadable module the kernel would load it as needed. So what they di was not compile the support into the kernel more then likely. I really doubt you will find a 3rd party module to compile into the kernel since is already build into the kernel. If they left all the sources on the system just goto the /usr/src/linux directory and do a make menuconfig and just add the support. As long as you have the config file it will load all the current configured options when you start to make it (I think you can even do it without the config since it is a working kernel). You won't have to worry about the vmlinuz linking and such since you will be adding this to your current kernel. Hope I was a help! And don't be scared to do this, just watch what you are doing and you will be fine. make menuconfig,make,make modules_install, and you are done!
