Question Mounting CD-Rom with Solaris 8


I just completed a Solaris 8 installation. When I now insert a CD-Rom how do I mount the device? After I inserted the CD I changed into /cdrom but ist did not show the content of the CD. So, how do I mount the CD-Rom?

I also tried to find some tipps on the internet but did not find any. Smilie

Thanks for your help!

it should automount by itself.

if it dosent you can try volcheck.

volcheck - checks for media in a drive and by default checks
all floppy media

Just a thought!

Solaris can read iso9660, cant it?

Okay, ich tried volcheck and it gives me the following output:

scsi WARNING: /pci@0,0/pci-ide@7,1/ide@0/sd@1,0 (sd0):
i/o to invalid geometry

I have no clue what that means! I do not have a scsi CD-Rom, or any other scsi drives in my computer, thats for sure!

Plaese let me know, if you guys have an idea what to to.

Error message in interesting, referencing both ide and scsi. Perhaps you have some SCSI emulation in the kernel?
