Mounting problems and a shutdown problem


After some searching and mucking around, i cannot seem to solve a few problems.

I just installed FC 3. I had FC 2 installed before and had successfully mounted the same CD's and windows HDD's but with FC 3, i seem to have run into some snags.

Here goes:

1. I have the CD/DVD-ROM icon on my desktop that links to the /media/cdrecorder folder. When i try to mount the CD Drive via the 'mount' feature by right-clicking the icon, i get the following error (with an audo CD in the CD-Rom):

Could not mount device.
The reported error was:
/dev/hdc: Input/output error
mount: /dev/hdc: can't read superblock


here is the line for the CD-Rom taken from the /etc/fstab

/dev/hdc /media/cdrecorder auto pamconsole,fscontext=system_ubject_r:removable_t,ro,exec,noauto,managed 0 0


I've not seen the

pamconsole,fscontext=system_ubject_r:removable_t

stuff before.


2. I created a link on the desktop to my windows drive. When i try and open the link, i get the following message:

Could not mount device.
The reported error was:
mount: only root can mount /dev/hda1 on /mnt/windows

The fstab info is:

/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ext3 defaults 0 0

I can get this to work after loggin in and using root to mount it via command line but would like to find out how to get it to auto-mount using root privaleges.


3. When i logout, i get erros on the mounted windows drive indicating that it's "in use" and cannot umount it.



thanks in advance for your help

I assume that's audio? One can't mount audio-CDs,
I'm certain fc2 didn't allow that either.

Change the first 0 to 1 and it will be automagically mounted
at boot ... how come your windows uses ext3, btw? :)



Cheers,
Tink
