"mount /dev/hdc no medium found" shows up at every booting system for 10 times


Hi, all !

I'am runing slackware64 , everything is almost perfect, but a little issue at the booting time , every time i boot my system there is a msgs " mount /dev/hdc no medium found , try again" shows up for five times , and after iptables part finished , that "mount /dev/hdc no medium found " thing performed 5 times again, I noticed that because it really takes time , about 10secs, and i want system booting speeded up badly , after system booting, cdrom works very well.
Is it normal ? any way i can do to pass that part , or at least make it not "try again " for 10 times ?

thanks !

what does your /etc/fstab file says about the device/dev/sdc?

Comment all the lines out that contain /dev/sdc. Your computer is trying to mount the entries in there; if a device doesn't exist, as in this case, it errors.

Try this line:
PHP Code:
/dev/hdc  /media/cdrom  auto   pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0 
Make sure you have the cdrom directory in /media.


P.S. Not too familiar with Slackware
