Description of problem:
mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom
does not mount "no valid block device"
CDROM(s) used: Roswell iso1 and iso2 from which I installed.
Though cdrom *is* hdd, I also tried hda, hdb, hdc without success.
When I reboot, the installation program starts from cdrom, though.
Strange .... !
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom
Actual Results: "no valid block device"
Expected Results: cdrom is mounted
The directories /mnt/floppy and /mnt/cdrom did not exist after clean install
*or* upgrade over Seawolf.
Needed to create both directories before CD or floppy would work again.
[root@leonberg root]# rpm -qf /mnt/cdrom
[root@leonberg root]# rpm -qf /mnt/floppy
They are in the filesystem package... Looks like you used a bad image?
