Question How do I view Mounted CD ?


We are running Slackware 9 and are having a problem viewing mounted CD`s as users. As root, we have no problem, can mount and view through directory created called `disk`. As users, have created similar directories to view mounted CD`s, but cannot use them to view the information on the CD. Have changed `fstab` to allow us to mount as users, but root still only has permission to view info on the CD. Tried to change directory permissions for the `disk` directory, but always goes back to default. Any suggestions ?

this is how we mount as root: mount /dev/cdrom ~/disk

this is what we changed in /etc/fstab:

/dev/cdrom mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,user,ro 0 0

/mnt/cdrom2 supermount dev=/dev/cdrom,fs=auto,ro,--,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,umask=0 0 0

put something like this in the /etc/fstab file


and the permissions should be universal read for the /disk directory

Smile Thanks everyone .

It worked! We now have a desktop icon for each user to mount, view, unmount, and eject. We were using info from a UNIX book that told us to create a directory to view CD contents. This works for root, but not for users. Now all is well. Thanks again.

by the way, in slack 9 you dont have to create a directory, its default in /mnt/cdrom. you do have to mount it if your not in the gui, type mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom. gnome and kde should auto detect unless you turned the option off. also, the slackware 9 comes with how-to's and documentation you can read instead of that unix book. good luck slacking
