CD image with .mds/.mdf extention


Hi there

I had created some CD image with a software called Alcohol 120% under Windows. Those image have a .mds/.mdf extention.

Now I'm migrating to linux and would like to mount them. I had google for it and search some linux forums but haven't find a answer yet.

Anyone know how can I mount .mds file under linux? I don't want to convert them back to ISO as there're many of them.

Thanks!

you could do it with vmware (or bochs if you a) can be bothered and b) will need to do it outside a 30 day period) and save trouble probably.

Yeah, i'm installing vmware on my box now. I'm running slack 9.1 with 2.6.6 kernel and I get an error when building the module. (I see you run slack9.1 so i'm guessing you might have installed vmware on there?)

Anyway, i get this output -

Thanks for any help

Trying to find a suitable vmmon module for your running kernel.

None of VMware Workstation's pre-built vmmon modules is suitable for your
running kernel. Do you want this program to try to build the vmmon module for
your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)? [yes]

Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override.

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running
kernel? [/lib/modules/2.6.6/build/include]

There is probably a slight difference in the kernel configuration between the
set of C header files you specified and your running kernel. You may want to
rebuild a kernel based on that directory, or specify another directory.

visit our Web site at "http://www.vmware.com/download/modules/modules.html" and

im using hte same stuff as you and it worked fine. if you can be bothered, just try recompiling the kernel and making sure the /usr/src/linux symlink is pointing in the right place. it should work after that.

yay my 200th post

yeh, and also make sure that /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build points to /usr/src/linux-`uname -r`

yeah, i just checked that and that seesm fine.
however, my /lib/modules/2.6.6/kernel/drivers/net is completley empty... could this be why it is not building the modules, and if so why is it empty?

Cheers

id just go with the kernel recompile if i was you - it only takes about 10 mins to configure and then waiting for about 1/2 an hours on 1ghz - less if you have a faster comp.

Question MDF/MDS Mount?

Did anyone ever find a reasonable way to mount MDF/MDS files created with alcohol? I would really appreciate a reply.
