Question Read from CD or DVD using terminal scripts for non GUI RHEL 5 Enterprice system


Hi,

I need to reinstall the DKU because system init 5 is spawning too fast.
Startx wont continue so therefore i need to use the terminal script.
I have already mounted the DVD ROM. Question is, how do i open the files written on the DVD so I can copy it to /usr/tmp

Thanks,

mv is the command to copy files but I may misunderstand what you have.

Just a correction jefro, mv is for moving files, and cp is for copying

if startx is failing, this could have something to do with drivers, more importantly you should be looking into the X11/xorg.conf

in order to copy the files off of the DVD you could use something like the following.

Code:
# mount -t iso9660 /dev/dvd /mnt/dvd
# cp /mnt/dvd/foo /path/to/destination
# umount /mnt/dvd
# eject
