Thumbs down


Well, you know the problem from my previous post...which lookes like this...

"Well, mounting my CD-ROM drive worked for a SHORT while, and i also decided to d/l and install RH 7.0, so i can connect to the internet...but, when i try to do mount -t iso9660 blah blah, i get a big fat error that at the end says something to the extent of bad fs type, other things, or too many filesystems mounted..."

So this is what my fstab looks like for all those who want more info...i'm open to suggestions, cuz i'm thoroughly lost as to what to do (when i had red hat 6.0, both CDROM drives mounted with no problem, hdc, and hdd, and now they give me that crap error)...thanks

LABEL=/ / ext2 defaults 1 1

/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0

/dev/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom1 iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0

/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner 0 0

none /proc proc defaults 0 0

none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0

/dev/hda6 swap swap defaults 0 0

*Please note, my fstab isn't this random, if you will, its all neatly lined up in columns*

When you burnt the disks, did you specify that the filesystem would be iso9660 instead of Joliet?

Joliet is the default for windows CDs. Since you've specified that the filesystem is iso9660 when you mount the CD-ROM, it's looking for that filesystem and obviously not finding it.

Your /etc/fstab looks fine. That's not the problem. Probably your disc. Burn again and make sure you specify iso9660.

The problem is not with the drives, it's with the media in the drives, which is what my previous post alluded to.

That's based on your vague error message of "something to the extent of bad fs type, other things, or too many filesystems mounted".

Apparently I need more details. Until then...
