No acces to CD drive in Gentoo 2006.0 (RESOLVED)

Posted 06-03-2006 at 05:46 AM by luiz1

After installing gentoo 2006.0 for the first time
I realized that I didnt have access to my DVD-RAM drive
so this si what I did

opened a terminal ( xterm) and as root
I did

mkdir /mnt/dvd /This folder doesnt exist in gentoo so you have to creat it
vi /etc/fstab / You have to edit your /fstab file since the one Gentoo creates
>only declares essetial boot devices e.g: HD, /boot, etc
