Thread: mount: mount point /media/cdrom0 does not exist

  1. mount: mount point /media/cdrom0 does not exist

    Hello! I seem to have problems when mounting with my CD-ROM after
    every time I boot up Debian r3.1 (Kernel 2.6.10-1-K7; 2/18/2005):


    Error - kio_devices_mounthelper dialog box comes after trying to mount
    my CD-ROM from desktop: "mount: mount point /media/cdrom0 does not
    exist ... Please check that the disk is entered correctly."

    I open KDE's Terminal Program (Konsole) to look around:

    $ pwd
    /media

    $ ls -all
    total 3
    drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 1024 2005-03-11 13:52 .
    drwxr-xr-x 24 root root 1024 2005-03-09 22:37 ..
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 2005-03-11 13:52 cdrom -> /media/cdrom0
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 2004-09-24 16:46 floppy -> floppy0
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 1024 2004-09-24 16:46 floppy0

    $ su
    Password:
    # mkdir cdrom0
    # exit

    [mounted the CD-ROM on KDE's desktop and no errors]

    Shell/Terminal showed no problems as well:
    $ ls -all cdrom0
    dr-xr-xr-x 1 root root 2048 2005-03-11 15:34 .
    drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 1024 2005-03-11 22:01 ..
    -r-xr-xr-x 1 root root 7133184 2005-03-11 12:28 20050311-009-i32.exe
    -r-xr-xr-x 1 root root 1242188 2005-03-11 13:12 cleaner.cdb
    -r-xr-xr-x 1 root root 10422918 2005-03-11 15:34 Forgotten_Hope_0.67_to_0.67A_HOTFIX.exe
    -r-xr-xr-x 1 root root 9427444 2005-03-11 12:23 NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7167-pkg1.run
    ....

    See, it works. Why do I have to keep recreating this directory for every
    reboot? It's annoying. How can I prevent this or keep that directory to
    stay there?

    $ more /etc/fstab
    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.
    #
    #
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    /dev/hda1 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
    /dev/hda8 /home ext3 defaults 0 2
    /dev/hda7 /tmp ext3 defaults 0 2
    /dev/hda5 /usr ext3 defaults 0 2
    /dev/hda6 /var ext3 defaults 0 2
    /dev/hda9 none swap sw 0 0
    /dev/hdb1 /stuff ext3 defaults 0 2
    /dev/hdb5 /storage ext3 defaults 0 2
    /dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 iso9660 ro,user,noauto 0 0
    /dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto 0 0
    /dev/sda1 /mnt/flash vfat noauto,users,umask=000 0 0

    This should be OK, right?

    Also right after unmounting the CD-ROM, I can't eject. I get "KDE Eject
    - KDialog: Eject /dev/hdc failed!" Why do I have to wait about a minute
    or more to do? Is this normal?

    Thank you in advance.
