Mounting CD ROM in Digital Unix...

Unread postby yetanother**ixuser » Sat Oct 25, 2014 6:02 am

I want to upgrade the firmware on this old Alphastation 200, but i'm unable to mount the firmware cd.

Code: Select all

# file /dev/rrz*c
rrz6c: character special (8/6146) SCSI #0 RRD43 disk #48 (SCSI ID #6 ) (SCSI LUN 0 ) errors = 0/6 offline

mount -t cdfs -o noversion /dev/rz6c /cdrom
/dev/rz6c on /cdrom: No such device

# uname -a
OSF1 alphastation V4.0 386 alpha


whats wrong?

Because it's /dev/rrz6c not /dev/rz6c?
:Octane2: Octane2 Dual R14K 600Mhz, 4GB RAM, VPro V12, DCD, PCI Card Cage, GBit Ethernet
:Indigo2IMP: Indigo2 R10K 195MHz, 1GB RAM, Maximum Impact, I2V
The boxen are breeding... help!

/dev/rrz6c is the char device and /dev/rz6c is the correspondig block device for mounting.

according to the digital unix 4.0d docs not using the raw device is correct

Code: Select all

mount -rd -t cdfs -o rrip /dev/rz4c /usr/share/doclib/online


does the cdrom work otherwise? i mean you're sure the gear is fine?

yes, the drive is ok, downgraded to digital unix 3.0F. it seems that cdfs support is not included in the standard dgux kernel, which give me some warm lols *gg*. after the rebuild the mount command works. unfortunatly the files on the cdrom are corrupt.
so next question is, how do i mount a fat formated floppy without installing mtools?
