So I am trying to install UT. But when I run the install program and error message pops up saying I need to mount the UT CD. Well this is strange since I already mounted the cd. Anyone know how to fix this???

--thanks

A couple of ways...

Look and see that your cdrom is able to be mounted as the users, and not root only.
QUOTE
/dev/cdrom       /mnt/cdrom       iso9660     noauto,users,ro  0   0


Or, you could copy the linux-installer to the Hardrive and run the installer from there.

Nope it does not work.

QUOTE
/mnt/cdrom supermount dev=/dev/hdb,fs=auto,ro,users,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,umask=0 0 0


Thats how my fstab looks. When I copy the installer I get the same error message. I tried both ways as  root also. But no luck.

I assume you are tyring to install the original UT (not ut2003 or ut2004).

There is a command you can pass to the installer. I'm at work right now so I'm not sure of the exact syntax of it, but I think it is like this (open a console and type this):

CODE
$export SETUP_CDROM=/path/to/cdrom
$sh ut-install-428.run


look here for more help

I am having the same problem. I have listed my /etc/fstab entry for my dvd-rom below. Can someone tell me if there is anything wrong with it? TIA.




/dev/dvd             /media/dvd           subfs      fs=cdfss,ro,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=utf8 0 0

 Save a backup of you fstab(should do it automaticlly after you save it saved as fstab~) then alter the line to

/dev/dvd      /media/dvd      iso9660    noauto,users,ro  0  0

then manually mount it,
CODE
mount /dev/dvd
ands then it should work. After it's installed just
CODE
umount /dev/dvd
and put your fstab back to how it was, it's the installers fault as it dont know what subfs is (mounts your drives always. i.e like in Windows)
