OpenBSD - cdrom mounting


Hi! I have just installed OpenBSD and I'm trying to mount a cdrom. I read some parts of the faq on their site, but I did not managed to find an answer. Can someone help me?
And.. on the OpenBSD site I found some ports, but there are for version 3.2, and I have 3.4; can I use those?

Thanks

ports

You should be using the same ports version as the version of your os. Do a 'uname -a' to find out what your running and download the appropriate tree. You should also update it with these commands:

tar -xvzf ports.tar.gz
cd ports
cvs -d anoncvs@anoncvs1.ca.openbsd.org:/cvs update -r OPENBSD_3_4 -dP

What do you want to mount the CD-ROM for, data, or a music CD? If you're trying to play a normal audio CD (the type you would be in a CD player) then you don't need to mount it. Just use a program like xcd to play it.

If you want to mount a data cd in ISO 9660 format, then you need to do
# mount_cd9660 /dev/cd0c /mnt/cdrom

This assumes your CD-ROM is at /dev/cd0 and that you have created a directory /mnt/cdrom. Do man mount_cd9660 for more info.

It was a data cd, and it worked! Thanks chort!
Is there there any OpenBSD-specific documentation?(Excepting their FAQ)

Well there are all the FAQ sections on OpenBSD.org, plus there is deadly.org which is OpenBSD news. There is a newbies list at sfobug.org. Michael Lucas has also written a rather nice book called Absolute OpenBSD. I highly recommend the book.
