Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am runnin SUSE 10.1 and noticed bout 10mins ago that when i put in a cd into one of my 2 drives (i think hdc, hdd respectively) that they no longer mount automatically and prompt me with a question on what i want to do.
I am usure on how to mount drives and the like myself, but would like the ability back for them to mount automatically when i place a cd in the drive.
If anyone could give me some advice I would appreciate it
I am assuming that you have not recently done any updates to SuSEplugger or udev. I know that when I had done those updates it screwed things up for me. you can go into:
/home/<username>/.kde/share/config (I think) and look for the suseplugger.rc file. There you can tell SuSE what you want to do with each type of media.
Hope that helps.
I'm not sure about updates to udev or the like but i did recently run smart package manager and installed all the patches/upgrades it said were avail and then run SuSEconfig & ldconfig after it had finished.
Well i looked in the folder you mentioned above however i only have a susepluggerrc not suseplugger.rc and the only lines it contains are
what would i need to put in there to make my cd/dvd drives come back to autorun life??
/dev/hdc /mnt/LG auto ro,auto,user,exec 0 0
/dev/hdd /mnt/TDK auto ro,auto,user,exec 0 0
check your permissions on these files in the /dev directory and the /mnt entries you made (suse doesn't like deviation from the norm :: shrugs :.
ls -la /dev/hd<put letter here>
brw-rw----+ 1 root disk 3, 0 2006-06-12 17:10 /dev/hda
since I am not a member of this group I don't have access. Check to see if there is a /dev/cdrom or /dev/cdrecorder. Even DVD roms seem to show up under /dev/cdrom (Kaffiene had a time with this).
ls -la /media/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 48 2006-04-26 13:47 cdrom
Suse no longer uses /mnt as of the addition of udev. So if you modified your fstab to reflect the /mnt entry it may not produce the results you are looking for. Let me know if you have any entries in your /media directory.
brw-rw----+ 1 hobbsie disk 22, 0 2006-06-16 03:06 /dev/hdc
brw-rw----+ 1 hobbsie disk 22, 64 2006-06-16 03:06 /dev/hdd
Were these already modified? I think the OS project is doing things differently than the Novell SuSE team is if you didn't.
check this command too:
ls -la /dev/cd*
My server is running 10 and has a cdrecorder. I have not had any problems with it even after reinstall. I guess if you have modified things you may want to visit YaST and look under Hardware for the cdrom drives and see if you can change them to directories under /media. It's the most user friendly anyway. Hope I have helped a little.
