mount cdrom?
 
Dear All
I have installed Debian 6.0.6 and I want to install from the packages coming with other cd iso images. Can you please let me know how can I mount my cdrom to read and install packages?
I tried as :
#mkdir /mnt/cdrom
#vi /etc/fstab
Modify the following line :
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660,noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
#mount /mnt/cdrom
But unsuccessful.

Thank you

the CD should auto-mount without your entry to fstab. If it won't
auto-mount, what messages do you get?

Ralf

Thank you for your reply. When I go to Places -> Computer -> CD Drive and right click and select open then it returns : "Unable to mount location"

Further to say that I have installed it from "debian-6.0.6-kfreebsd-i386-CD-1.iso" on my VBox but it didn't ask for putting the other two extra CDs.

Whilst this doesn't help with your CD issue, I wonder why you want to
use a CD to install packages? The online repos are generally better for
this.

Thank you for your reply. But I have downloaded the other two iso images named "debian-6.0.6-kfreebsd-i386
-CD-2.iso"* &* "debian-6.0.6-kfreebsd-i386-CD-3.iso" so I wanted* to make use of them to install other packages from .

Yes, but that doesn't answer Brad's question. Why?

Actually, for downloading iso images I had high speed download link. But at now, my server does not have high speed internet connection at the moment so I thought that if I can make use of the other iso image CDs to install packages.

USB and CD/DVD used with VBox can be done by taking care about the menu
entries in "Devices". If you install software or sync to tablet PCs
etc., you sometimes need to check the boxes again and again.

So in your case
Devices > CD/DVD devices > [x] Hostdrive FOO (sr0)
has to be checked.

Hth,
Ralf

PS: You tried to install packages from the additional CDs? Perhaps your
setup doesn't need anything from the other CDs.
