I am trying to mount my sohw1693s liteon dvd rw drive in etch amd_64.
I think I have edited /etc/fstab nearly out of existence and can't
remember the original settings that didn't work.
I recently did a netinstall of debian amd64. I have a gigabyte intel
chipset 945 board with two sata hdd one with win xp and the other with
linux on them. I simply use bios to select which drive to boot with.
All is fine, installed with kde3.5 and i can even see my usb drive when
However, I cannot find my dvd rw drive and have no idea of how to set
it up for automatic mounting etc (maybe in HAL?). It is an ide drive
and i have set the jumper to slave for now as master wasn't working.
My fstab is set to the following:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/sda1 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0
/dev/sda5 none swap sw 0 0
#/dev/sdc /media/cdrom0 iso9660 user,noauto,ro 0 0
I have commented out the last line out of frustration and thought
perhaps i shouldn't have a line in fstab as HAL might take care of
As a first step, I'd do:
# grep LITE /var/log/dmesg
