Cannot read from exe files on a Cdrom (with wine or cat)
My fstab is basic,
The problem is, its not allowing users other than root to read from exe files. Here is the output of
#ls -lh /media/cdrom
for old dos/windows programs to see the cd under wine it needs to see things in the ./wine structure as a dos drive letter, so open fileman in wine and and look for the pretend place for the cd directory in the dosish world wine creates.
you may need to create a symbolic link more palatable to wine.
ie as your wine user: ln -s "/media/cdrom" ~/.wine/D:
if you need to do this identicly to multiple users it might be easier to copy .wine to /etc/skel to prepopulate the users as they are created
It would normally be mounted as /media/Diablo II Install Disc 1 but I had to change it in order to be able to hot-swap cds as it is a 4 cd install.
I am fully aware that there is no execute permission (or read permission). I need to figure out HOW to mount it so that the read permission stays for all users not just root.
SO IT IS ACTUALLY MOUNTED WHERE I SAID IT WAS :), because it it mounts on its own, the installer won't be able to find the 2nd, and 3rd cds
Even when using the original label (removing fstab settings and ejecting/eject -t'ing the cd, so it regenerates a mount point in /media, it still doesn't allow reading by user.
I Read your edit, It still doesn't apply to the problem.
The problem is simple: The system WONT allow users (non-root) to read from or execute (.exe files) on a cdrom. I need to mound the cd so that all files are readable to all users, but using the umask=000 flag doesn't work, in fact, it makes everything break.
