Is there any potential problem with changing the fstab line that reads the cdrom to /dev/hdc rather than the traditional /dev/cdrom ?
I was having trouble creating a symbolic link to /dev/hdc from /dev/cdrom. Upon reboot the fstab would always say there was an unexpected file type for the cdrom.
Changing the /dev/cdrom to /dev/hdc fixed it, and I can now
$ mount /etc/cdrom
My fstab line looks like this:
/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom/ iso9660 noauto,user,kudzu,ro, exec,unhide 0,0
and if i run ls -l /dev/cdrom, I get
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8Dec 21 06:16 hdc -> /dev/hdc
ok, i have some questions for you ? i hope these are typo's but i have to ask.
whay are you trying to mount the cdrom in /etc/cdrom when the fstab say /mnt/cdrom?
remove the / after mnt/cdrom in the fstab.
Why do you have kudzu and unhide as options?
also remove the , between the 0 0.
i think you should take a look at man fstab
to know what options to put where in the fstab file.
