Description of problem:
When I use "$ mount /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom" I get: "mount: /dev/hdc is not a valid block device". I expected the command would let me use
the cdrom drive. The same setup worked during the installation process and under Redhat 7.1.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot rh 7.2 cd1. install rh 7.2 (using cd1 and cd2).
3. $ mount /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom
Actual Results: mount: /dev/hdc is not a valid block device
Expected Results: I expected the command would let me use the cdrom drive.
Chipset: ali15x3 rev 193
cdrom: ATAPI CD-ROM DRIVE 36X MAXIMUM (Philips)
The same setup works during the installation process and under Redhat 7.1.
Can you type "depmod -ae" as root and try again ?
I can try but ONLY if you think it will work: it will cost me about half an hour because I'll have to re-install 7.2 (with possibly no CDROM access, I now installed rh7.1).
When I typed dmesg on rh7.2 it showed /dev/hdc and the CD-ROM as ATAPI CD-ROM DRIVE 36X MAXIMUM.
