mtgibbscorrect
Cherock: if you're in KDE
Cherock: it should mount through My Computer
Cherockthat is the problem it will not mount, even under root.
mtgibbsCherock: fstab doesn't contain entries for optical drives
Cherock: try mount -t iso9660 /dev/YOURDRIVE /media/DIRTOMOUNTTO
you have to create a directory to mount it to beforehand
CherockIt was a while back, but we had to configure the fstab file to do optical drives, I have since had a system failure and I had to reload my entire system.
mtgibbsCherok: well, I can successfully read from optical drives, and there's nothing in fstab for them
CherockWell then How do see what is happening with the drive?
mtgibbsCherock: what do you have in /media?
Cherockcd+rw right now.
but i also use dvd+rw
mtgibbsare you using SATA?
Cherockbecause the drive is a dvd+rw
Yes sata, on a dual boot machine
mtgibbswhat version of suse do you have?
Cherock10.1
mtgibbsdid the drive ever work with 10.1?
there are some issues with SATA
Cherockyes
mtgibbsokay
I'm trying to remember...but I think in 10.1 did like 10.2 and put an entry in /media with the name of the disk in the drive
Cherockand I had no problems, when you put in a disk, a window pops up showing an unmounted disk and when you click on OK, then it comes back permission denied.
mtgibbsah
Cherockand it does this for both the user and root
mtgibbshmmm
I'm afraid I'm out of suggestions, other than to try to mount it with the mount command
CherockUnder the /media, all I have is an icon for xmms_audiio_cd
mtgibbsyes
and that's not the one you want?
linuxorHi Guys, I'm trying to use vnc but steel get error (Xlib: extension "DPMS" missing on display), What to do ?
mtgibbsLinuxor: how did you set up vnc?
Cherockit will not mount using the mount command, it comes back and says " No /mnt/dvd point"
mtgibbsyeah
Cherock: you have to make the directory you want to mount it to first
Cherock: so cd /mnt
Cherock: then mkdir dvd
Cherock: then mount
Cherockbut isn't that under the /dev folder?
