Mandrake update probs


When I run mandrake update, it goes away to the ftp server and finds the packages. However, to meet a dependency on one of the packages, it asks for Mandrake 8.0 disk 1 to be placed in /dev/scd0 - when I put it in, it spits it out and asks for it again. As far as I'm aware the disk is ok - is it beacuse it's specifying /dev/scd0 and not /mnt/cdrom?

Thanks in advance.

hello,
if you know what package it is asking for i would try to install it before the upgrade.

are you able to mount the disk okay?

It seems that this is a wider problem than I thought. I can cd to /mnt/cdrom, but can't browse any files with a CD in - just get prompt back with no errors.

Something must have happened to my config to change the CD settings, but I don't have a clue what's happened.

check out your /etc/fstab file and see if everything looks correct in there.

Cool

Here it is - not that I know much about it, as I needed quite a bit of help getting my cdrw going, way back when I was a newbie. :-)

/mnt/cdrom /mnt/cdrom supermount dev=/dev/scd0,fs=iso9660,ro,--,iocharset=iso8859-15 0 0
/mnt/floppy /mnt/floppy supermount dev=/dev/fd0,fs=vfat 0 0
