Make a CD Directory Available For Execution
How can I access a directory on a CD so that programs can use the data in the directory? It appears on my Desktop. I tried doing a cd command using the DVD's name that was on the desktop but was unsuccessful. Embedded blanks were in the name, and I tried it with " and ' and without them, all to no avail.
I worked around it by using the "Copy/Paste" functions of the "Applications --> System Tools --> File Browser" to copy the directory from the DVD to my home directory and rpm worked successfully. But, I would like to learn how to do it without having to first copy from the DVD
Background on the question: Dec 7th, Fedora 10 issued a security update to dbus that prevents several of the Fedora functions from working - including obtaining Updates.
A solution was posted in "fedora forums" that explained how to use rpm to revert to the prior-to-the-update dbus (forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?p=1126982#post1126982)
Here is a snippet:
"Insert Fedora DVD go to Packages dir ..."
I inserted the DVD and it appears on the Desktop, but is not part of the Desktop directory.
