Hello, I've just realised that I am unable to mount a cdrom disk as a non-root user for *any* of my machines.
All hosts concerned are running FreeBSD-4.9Stable, and running through: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.IS...SER-FLOPPYMOUNT does *not* work for me at all.., Here's what I keep getting: Checking groups to which the user belongs: $ id stacey uid=1001(stacey) gid=1001(stacey) groups=1001(stacey), 0(wheel), 5(operator) ~ $ Checking to see if the vfs.usermount sysctl parameter is set: # sysctl -a | grep -i usermount vfs.usermount: 1 #mount /cdrom #ls /cdrom acrobat ds.dll intel pcplus95.inf setup.exe autorun.inf ds32.dll language pwrchute.ico setup16.exe demo.dbd install.txt manuals readme.txt win95 #exit As root I can mount and read the CD fine.., checking for non-root user: exit ~ $ mount /cdrom cd9660: /dev/acd0c: Operation not permitted ~ $ mount -t cd9660 /dev/acd0c ~/cdrom cd9660: /dev/acd0c: Operation not permitted ~ $ Attempting to mount to mount-point in user home dir: ~ $ cd ~ ~ $ pwd /home/stacey ~ $ ls -ltra cdrom total 6 drwxr-xr-x 2 stacey stacey 512 Jan 3 23:50 ./ drwxr-xr-x 31 stacey stacey 2560 Jan 3 23:50 ../ ~ $ mount -t cd9660 /dev/acd0c ~/cdrom cd9660: /dev/acd0c: Operation not permitted ~ $ This doesn't work either for me.., Checking device in /etc/fstab: ~ $ cat /etc/fstab # See the fstab(5) manual page for important information on automatic mounts # of network filesystems before modifying this file. # # Device Mountpoint FStype Options Dump Pass# /dev/ad0s1b none swap sw 0 0 /dev/ad1s1b none swap sw 0 0 /dev/ad0s1a / ufs rw 1 1 /dev/ad1s1e /home ufs rw 2 2 /dev/ad0s1f /usr ufs rw 2 2 /dev/ad0s1e /var ufs rw 2 2 /dev/acd0c /cdrom cd9660 ro,noauto 0 0 proc /proc procfs rw 0 0 ~ $ Is there some step that I've neglected somewhere along the way? This is the same failure I see on all hosts.., doesn't matter which one.., Regards, Stacey -- Stacey Roberts B. Sc (HONS) Computer Science Web: www.vickiandstacey.com
