Help !!!

I installed Arch  yesterday and it's great. It's fast, highly configurable,etc...
But today i ran into a problem. I need to access my backup-dvd, but konqueror fails with this massage:
Could not mount device.

The reported error was:

mount: mount point /mnt/dvd/ does not exist

So I looked into the /etc/fstab/ but it seems alright:

#
# /etc/fstab: static file system information
#
# <file system>        <dir>         <type>    <options>          <dump> <pass>
none                   /dev/pts      devpts    defaults            0      0
none                   /dev/shm      tmpfs     defaults            0      0
tmpfs                  /tmp          tmpfs     defaults            0      0

/dev/cdroms/cdrom0     /mnt/cd   iso9660   ro,user,noauto,unhide   0      0
/dev/cdroms/cdrom0     /mnt/dvd  udf       ro,user,noauto,unhide   0      0
/dev/floppy/0          /mnt/fl   vfat      user,noauto             0      0

/dev/discs/disc0/part2 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/discs/disc0/part3 / ext3 defaults 0 1

I would be very happy if someone would help me to solve this, i need to get the data on that dvd, and giving up arch would be a shame. It's the best linux distro I've used so far.

Thx in advance, borisb

Re: Help !!!

First sry for answering to my own question, but things got weird.
My system mounted the dvd in /mnt/cd not /mnt/dvd although I made a directory called /mnt/dvd.

Weird...

Re: Help !!!

/dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /mnt/cd iso9660 ro,user,noauto,unhide 0 0
/dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /mnt/dvd udf ro,user,noauto,unhide 0 0 

Likely it just chose the first one.

Maybe just go with something like /mnt/roundy. Nice and all inclusive.  wink

/dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /mnt/cd iso9660 ro,user,noauto,unhide 0 0
/dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /mnt/dvd udf ro,user,noauto,unhide 0 0

should be

/dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /mnt/cd iso9660 ro,user,noauto,unhide 0 0
/dev/cdroms/cdrom1 /mnt/dvd udf ro,user,noauto,unhide 0 0

or

Re: Help !!!

Please check if there is "dvd"(or "cd" or whatever else you have in fstab) in "/mnt/".
Usually after install that directory is empty.

Re: Help !!!

Use more explicit titles. "Help" is just one word. With some efforts, you could have written at least two.

Re: Help !!!

First of all thx a lot. It worked great.
The Arch Community is great smile

Why I wrote Help:
I needed fast help, was in a hurry of reading my backup DVD where I saved a project that I needed to access.

Thx again for the help.

P.S. There was a /mnt/cd and /mnt/dvd

Just a thought.
If you write just "help!!!" as subject, many people won't even open the thread. But when you use more descriptive subject more people will read it and hence you may acquire your much needed answer sooner.

Re: Help !!!

borisb - try reading this:

http://www.acor.org/faqs/lists/listgoodposts.html

It is actually about mailing lists but most of the concepts are identical when posting on the forums

no more - help !! posts - it doesn't help

Re: Help !!!

Post with longer and more explicit titles.
This is really disrespectful for those who take the time to use the "Search" functionnality of the forum.
Hopefully the moderators and forum advisers have not got angry.
