yesterday this came back listing my cd drives, and now:

root@antel:~# cat /proc/dev/sys/cdrom/info
cat: /proc/dev/sys/cdrom/info: No such file or directory

Shouldn't that be:

root@wildblue:~# mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
root@wildblue:/dev# mount -t iso9660 hdc /mnt/cdrom
root@wildblue:/dev# mount -t iso9660 hdd /mnt/cdrom

Check your relational references. Notice the addition of the "/" before dev in the first command and the absent "dev/" in the last two. Could that be it? (Could also be a typo from when you wrote the post and I'm completely off. )

Rep: Reputation: 15 case this happens to someone else,-the mounting only works when the machine is started with cd's in both drives..., if not all mounting hangs.
