Mounting /dev/cdrom in SuSE 8.0 Pro in a Terminal - wrong fs type...


I'm installing SuSE 8.0 Pro w/ a GeForce 4 card so I've had to do everything in text mode because 8.0 lacks the drivers. I downloaded the drivers from the nvidia site on a winME machine and burned them to a CD (too large for a flopy). I've moved the cdr to the linux machine and tried to mount it various ways. [[ mount -t (auto, iso9660, vfat, msdos, emsdos, etc) /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom ]] . I've read man 8 mount and spent the past 4 hours browsing forums and FAQ. I've found nothing relating to my problem (that worked).

When I try the mount I get the error message [[ wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom, or too many mounted file systems. (could this be the ide device where you in fact use ide-scsi so that sr0 or sda or so is needed?]] Please let me know what I've done wrong and where I can find out what to do and Thank You for your time.


-Oh and I saw something about a chat service? Is this the private message or is there a chatroom area that I've been unable to find?

is your CD drive IDE? I will assume that it is... mount the device directly rather than using the /dev/cdrom thing that suse sets up.

try

mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdc /media/cdrom


you might want to make sure that nothing is mounted on /media/cdrom first though...

umount /media/cdrom

depending on which ide controller your cd drive is connected too. hdc is the second master, hdd is the second slave, hdb is primary slave and no points for guessing hda

You should do this as root and once it all works put the line into /etc/fstab

/dev/hdc /media/cdrom auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0

then you can mount it as a user and you can mount it by typing either,

mount /dev/hdc
or
mount /media/cdrom

Suse creates some symlinks to the cdrom drives too, so (assuming they are there) you can also mount and access your drive through /cdrom

mount /cdrom

also note that you have to...
umount /cdrom

before ejecting the disk...

some drives will be supported by this too...

eject /cdrom

this umounts and spits out the disk for you...

Have fun
