We will combine many of the older boards, and you won't have to click through so many levels to get at the information you need. If you are looking for an older board and do not find it, check the consolidated boards, as the posts are still there.

Re: mount cdrom

See man mount:

rrip

Uses the Rock Ridge Interchange Protocol (RRIP) extensions to ISO 9660 (if present on the file system) to provide mixed-case file names, devce special files, and other atributes for files on the file system.

This setting is a default argument. If there are no RRIP extensions on the file system, the file system will be mounted and the argument will be ignored.

Re: mount cdrom

Re: mount cdrom

The manual for mount is available on your Unix system. No need for a URL :-)

The full mount command you're looking for is:

# mount -r -t cdfs -o rrip /dev/ /

Re: mount cdrom


Also the Microsoft '-o joliet' option might be needed to properly see long mixed-case filenames.

See manpage mount , section CDFS.

Re: mount cdrom

Hi,

could you please be more specific then "looks bad?"
Does it look garbled or in capital letters with ";1" at the end?

greetings,

Michael
