It's very fantastic, Red Hat and friends have decided to put the SysVinit.rpm package on the second cdrom!!!
Have you ever tried to recover an init file corrupted by reinstalling the rpm SysVinit in rescue mode??
It is simply impossible because the cdrom won't absolutely eject to insert the second disc!!!!
so you must use only first cd.......no way to install it
yes you can use a floppy, or a network path to get your dear package but....
did you know that on friday i have the exam? i really can't figure out what i will say to instructor if he will ask me to reinstall init without using anything except cdrom
i can't believe it
I have tried everything, from eject, to fuser to hdparm
no way...that damned cdrom won't eject....
pay attention, the rescue mode doesn't really need the first cdrom because when it is loaded....is loaded. You can listen to the cdrom loading and loading while you are using commands in rescue mode but it is all a fake..... i have eject my cd by putting a sting in the emergency hole of the cdrom, and after changed it with the second cdrom, rescue mode still works without problems, and i have even reinstalled the init package, so in reality the problem is solved....
But the question still remain... in the middle of the exam, what will i say to the instructor? please give me a sting???
i want to die!!!!
do you know how to do it????
no way with google, no way with books, no way with forums, really no way.
