Re: Mount ISO image on hp-ux 11.00

Hi Sergej,

From the FAQ's on Merijn's/Procura's weppage.

http://mirrors.develooper.com/hpux/

My CD-ROM doesn't show what I expect
It can be an Oracle CD-ROM, or a CD created on Windows, or whereever they used Rock Ridge extensions. Long names are truncated or show upper case only. Oracle tells you to use pfs_mount.

Do not use pfs_mount!. Install the Rock-Ridge extension patches instead and never worry about these problems. For HP-UX 11.00 you will need forget all about PFS and install PHKL_26448 (now superceded by PHKL_28060), PHCO_26449, and PHKL_26450 to have HP-UX recognize those file systems automatically on mount! For HP-UX 11.11 (11i) you need PHCO_25841, PHKL_26269, and PHKL_25760 (now superceded by PHKL_28025).

No need thereafter to use -o cdfs to mount anymore, provided you enter the CD drive in /etc/fstab like this:

/dev/cd0 /cdrom cdfs ro,rr,noauto 0 0

Hope this helps,

Hi Sergej,

Download below patches.

PHCO_26449
http://tinylink.com/?nZ4fQOOos7

PHKL_28060
http://tinylink.com/?hdNEUvKYMY

PHKL_26450
http://tinylink.com/?DFe5KfS8Xn

swinstall on to your system.

Verify that the patches are in the "configured" state:

# swlist -l fileset -a state | grep 28060
# swlist -l fileset -a state | grep 26449
# swlist -l fileset -a state | grep 26450

Then you will follow these steps to mount CD-ROMS:

# ioscan -fnC disk
# mkdir cdrom
# mount -F cdfs -o rr /dev/dsk/c#t#d# /cdrom

with c#t#d# being the device file for the cdrom drive

Best regards,
Robert-Jan

Re: Mount ISO image on hp-ux 11.00

Hi there!
I apriciate your effort, but i think u r missing the point ...
i got 3 .ISO images

cd1.iso
cd2.iso
cd3.iso

How can i mount them on specified device ...
I know that procedure on Sun Solaris with lofiadm command, but unfortunatelly hpux doesnt't support that command ... :(

Re: Mount ISO image on hp-ux 11.00

I got your point right away. I don't know if it's supported on HP-UX, but have a look at cdrtools ( http://freshmeat.net/projects/cdrecord/ )

A quick search didn't show up binary precompiled binaries, but I think I saw it on recent application CD's. Don't curse if I am wrong.

Linux has native support for it, but HP-UX does not. Maybe DFS can deal with it.

Since xcdroast is based on cdrtools, http://www.xcdroast.org/xcdr098/rpms-a9.html#hpux might give an extra bit of info

I *know* cdrtools can read/verify/write iso images, because that's what I use it for on HP-UX also, but I've never tried to mount it, and I'm still using version 1.11
