You may find that while the Yellow Dog Linux v3.0.1 installer ran well off your CD, upon reboot you are unable to mount any CDs. This is due to a problem with Kudzu, a hardware configuration tool that ships with Yellow Dog. Below is a fix that will get you your CD back.
- Find where your CD is hiding
CTRL-OPTION-F2You should see something like this:
(login as root)
dmesg | grep cd [ENTER]
hde: attached ide-cdrom driver.or possibly this:
sr0: etc. etc.If you see the former, you need to remember the first 3 letters, be they hde or something else.
If you see the latter, remember scd0
- Make a link by typing:
ln -s /dev/hde /dev/cdromwhere hde is the three letters you saw above.
- Edit /etc/fstab by typing:
pico /etc/fstabUse the arrows to scroll to the bottom. Add this line: /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,user,kudzu,ro 0 0
CTRL-X (exit and save)
- Add a CD icon to your desktop.
