Linux doesn't want to mount...


...Burned CDs. it won't even read a CD it read before! i'm running slackware...I put it in, it says something like Bad Superblock, Missing Code...blah blah blah dmesg | tail...blah blah....Whats wrong and how do i fix it ...All i wanted was wine, is that to much to ask ?

Well i'm at it i would also like to know something else...I've installed slackware about 9 times now...and 4 or 5 of those time after it searches for a CD and doesn't find one, and continues to boot, it starts going

99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99

Except like a million and one times(But not really, only about 3 and a half lines)
It could be Hex code, but i don't get why it would be the same hex over and over...so i don't think it is...

Anywho its not happening now(don't know why).

what does your /etc/fstab look like? Post it. were you able to mount cds before? have you looked in the slackware forum? ask the moderator to move.

The file named "fstab" in the /etc directory. It contains a list of partitions on your hard disks, rewritable drives, etc. If you can actually boot linux, open up a terminal and type "cat /etc/fstab" (without the quotes) and copy and paste the output.

Ok, i found it....now i'm going to be running up and down stairs to get it done...


/dev/hda1 / reiserfs defaults 1 1
/dev/hda2 /hda2 /reiesers defaults 1 2
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto owner, ro 0 0
/dev/fdo /mnt/floppy auto noauto owner 0 0
/dev/pts /dev/pts devpts gid=5, mode=620 0 0
/proc /proc proc defaults 0 0



Ok....now i'm not sure if i wrote it out right, only thing that would be wrong would be the slashes...if its important i will correct it for you.

Mount: Wrong fs type, bad option, bad super block on dev/cdrom
Missing Code Page
(Could this be the IDE device where you in fact use
ide-scsi so that sr0 or sda or so is needed?)
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg |tail or so

check to make sure that /dev/cdrom is your actual cdrom--

it might be /dev/hdb, /dev/hdc, or something else.

well, if its not mounting when you tell it to, its probly not right..

so change it, and see if it works. when i was using debian i put in cd, booted, and saw what device it was reading the cd from... then i changed my fstab to fit the bill...

there might be an easier way to do it, like a hardware detect, but im in teh dark on that--maybe someone else knows how to do it.
