Problems installing RH9 packages


Tried to install RH9 development tools after the initial installation using Add/Remove Programs in KDE. Won't recognize the cd it needs. Worked fine during installation the previous hour. Is this a bug, or do I need to mount the cd a certain way. TIA

you probably need to mount the cd.

try this to mount a cd:

mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom

and this to unmount

umount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom.


basically the second directory in the command is where you want to mount the drive to. You would usually mount it on /mnt/cdrom but you could mount it anywhere you have permission to.

Let us know if that doesn't work.
