problems with cdrom and apt


hello,
I have a problem with my mount system.

The problems:
My 2nd cdrom (in fstab -> scd1) does not work at all.
My 1st cdrom (in fstab -> scd0) works bot not very satisfying.

The main problem is I wanted to use apt-get locally and configured it.
The auto recognition of my debian 3.0r2 did not work. The -d directory command helped.

After apt-get -f install everything seemed to work fine BUT then apt wanted me to put in the debian cd and to press enter.

I pressed enter but the text was repeated.

So I think there is something wrong with the mount-points (I assume but I am a Newbie).


After installation of my sys (Agnula/based on debian) there were no devices in /mnt.

So I created directories like "cdrom" and put them into the fstab.

What's the matter (The 1st cdrom problem is more important to me)?

Have you tried to mount it manually?

mount /dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom0
mount /dev/scd1 /mnt/cdrom1

f.ex.

mount cdrom1 at /cdrom, and not in /mnt. At least with Debian, apt looks here.

great, apt works now.

thanks a lot.

taken the first step on the hard trail to success.

Do you know whether I directly can set a folder on a hdd as location in apt (because I have to install gtk2.0 and I do not have an internet connection at home, so I have to transfer it with my USB-stick)?

You should be able to, but you might need some index-files on the key. No experience with these files. Try to open one from your cd (can't remeber location :-( ) and check if you can understand it.
