tring to mount scd0


i'm tring to mount a scd0 ( my cdrom ) after unreal tournament 2003 ask for play disk. When I open a xterm and su I type in

mount /dev/cdrom and th error i get is

there's no /dev/cdrom in fstab or mtab

so i looked at my fstab and mtab files and see something like this

mnt/cdrom= umm... supermount (dev=/dev/scd0 ) fs=auto blah blah blah

so i try these lines

mount -t supermount /dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom

same error.... then

mount /dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom

the error said something about

can't mount because superblock is bad...blah, blah, blah.

then i try

mount /dev/scd0

same error as mount /dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom

then i try

mount -t supermount /dev/scd0

nothing

then mount -t supermount /dev/cdrom and nothing.. nothing.. nothing..

can anyonehelp me? PLEASE I NEED TO PLAY A GAME!!!!

theoretically supermount should be doing the
trick for you automagically ...

That is, if you
cd /mnt/cdrom
it should be mounted

If it doesn't, try
mount -t iso9660 /dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom

HIH

Cheers,
Tink

Pleasure :)

Which of the two approaches worked for you?

The fact that you can't see supermount in the
options of mount is that it's an add-on, has nothing
to do with mount as such ... and as far as my last
information/contact with other distros goes: I think
only Mandrake installs/uses it by default.

I find it quite obnoxious, specially if used with
floppies.... ;)

Cheers,
Tink

LOL... Floppies so outdated that i killed mine when I installed windows xp from cd for the first time ( and i hate my self for it ). now that linux uses " Floppies " for boot problems I want to kill myself . I can run ( if i had a car ) to compuse or microcenter for a floppy but i don't have a car . What worked for me was mount -t iso9660 /dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom. That command worked the first time and the last. yeah it's a pain to type mount -t iso9660 /dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom everytime i want to use or install something from cdrom. in redhat 7.3 i just type mount /dev/cdrom and it's mounts. thank you again and now unreal tournament 2003 never seem so sweet before... LOL.


Peace

Peace
Put an alias in your .bashrc ie. alias mcd="mount -t iso9660 /dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom". Then all you have to do is type mcd and enter to mount.

Well, you can always modify your fstab mate :)
change that:
Quote:
mnt/cdrom= umm... supermount (dev=/dev/scd0 ) fs=auto blah blah blah
to
Code:
/dev/scd0       /mnt/cdrom       iso9660     noauto,user,ro  0   0
Cheers,
Tink
