I am running Mandrake 8.1 on a presario 12xl2 laptop. The install went "fine" with all my hardware and pcmcia card being recognized. My problem is I can't get the CDROM to play an audio cd. I checked the fstab file and it seems to say what it should (/dev/hdc/mnt/cdrom iso9660 user,exec,codepage=850,iocharset=iso8859-1,ro,noauto 0 0), and when I query ls -l /dev/cdrom I get lr-xr-xr-x 1 root root [date] /dev/cdrom --> ../cdroms/cdrom0. The part "/dev/cdrom-->../cdroms/cdrom0" is highlited in orange. From reading other post here and with Mandrake's "expert" help I was expecting "/dev/cdrom-->/dev/hdc"
When I place a cd in my drive, make sure it is unmounted, and try to launch the "CD Player" I get the message "CDROM read or access error (or no audio disc in drive) Please make sure you have access permissions to /dev/cdrom". I thought I set the permissions correctly
Any help is welcomed. As you have guessed this is all new to me. wolfzAz
