hello, world! I'm a FreeBSD newbie who is fumbling his way through FreeBSD 6.1. I am trying to install software from CD using sysinstall, but can't figure out how to eject CD 1 when it wants a package that's on CD 2. Pressing the button on the drive has no effect. STFW I found a page suggesting cdcontrol, but it doesn't seem do the trick:
k62350# cdcontrol Compact Disc Control utility, version 2.0 Type `?' for command list cdcontrol> eject cdcontrol: Device busy Crashing out of sysinstall via Ctrl+C -> Abort, cdcontrol still says Device busy. Fortunately, the button on the drive now works. Interestingly, cdcontrol reports Device busy with the drawer open and also after I insert CD 2. Starting sysinstall with CD 2 in the drive results in "Unable to get packages/INDEX file from selected media". Any ideas? TIA, David p.s. In the mean time, I can install using pkg_add. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
