Summary: Mount a cd rom

Date: Mon Jun 17 1996 - 18:27:51 CDT

The original question:

I got a sun netra-i I5-110 a month ago. I have tried to mount a CD rom and
failed. There is no vold deamon. Also, I can't find /etc/rc2.d/S*volmgt
file, where * indicates number. If I mounted the CDROM by issuing the
following command,
mount -F hsfs -o ro /dev/rdsk/c0t6d0s2 /cdrom
I got /dev/rdsk/c0t6d0s2 is not a block device. Can anybody help me?

The answer:

The correct command for this case is

mount -F hsfs -o ro /dev/dsk/c0t6d0s0 /cdrom

The command "mount -r -F hsfs /dev/sr0 /cdrom" doesn't work on Netra-i
running on SUN OS 5.4.

Thanks for your input.
