Finding my CDROM
- date: April 16, 2004
After a very steep learning curve, I seem to have managed to compile a custom kernel (2.4.22) for my box. It's a rather ancient beast that I use for playing with. I have the SMP support, RAID (DAC960) support and CD-ROM (TEAC hanging off an Adaptec card) working (I think!!!) but I have no idea what device the CD-ROM is so that I can mount it!
Can anyone help?
The output of dmesg is:-
Linux version 2.4.22416 ([email protected]
) (gcc version 3.2.3) #1 SMP Fri Apr 16 11:57:02 BST 2004

Why isn't Linux finding my wireless network?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 15, 2008
I got a RT2500 wifi card because it seems pretty hassle-free.
I installed it fine and booted into Ubuntu Hardy.
Then i tried to search/connect to my wireless network that i used when I had windows.
Not there. Doesn't connect to anything.
So i boot back into windows and install the Wifi card in XP and it works fine...
I can post the outputs of iwconfig and ifconfig if that would help
How do I mount my CDROM running Ubuntu within VirtualBox?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 20, 2009
I am running 64-bit Ubuntu 9.04 within VirtualBox. I've selected 'Install Guest Additions', which causes it to 'mount' an .iso file that contains certain drivers. There is no actual CD-ROM drive; it's a virtual CD-ROM drive. Now, if I type 'ls /media' within a Terminal, it lists 'disk' but no 'cdrom'. How do I mount it? What does it mean when I get: mount: error while loading shared libraries: /lib/libsepol.so.l: cannot read file data: Input/output error TIA.

Error ejecting: eject exited with exit code 1: eject: unable to eject, last error: Inappropriate ioctl for device
:~$ eject -rv
eject: using default device `cdrom'
eject: device name is `cdrom'
eject: expanded name is `/dev/cdrom'
eject: `/dev/cdrom' is a link to `/dev/sr0'
eject: `/dev/sr0' is not mounted
eject: `/dev/sr0' is not a mount point

Tried installing from Ubuntu 9.10 CD and it was nogo. Had to use a USB.
Been getting used to Ubuntu and just started researching CD problem.
Being new to Linux just want to make sure I'm not missing something.
Cannot locate my CDROM drive
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 7, 2002
I can not find it on the Turbolinux desktop or on its start menu. I tried locating under utilities went into the File Manager looked around there, under IDA and actually found my CDROM and FLOPPY folders but nothing is in them. I put a CD and Floppy both into the computer. Nothing is seen. Any suggestions or anything?
-- I run Turbolinux Workstation 6.0 Lite
-- Today we are getting an updated version. Maybe that will make it easier.
Finding My kernelsourcepath
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 6, 2004
I am trying to install the latest Nvidia Linux i386 drivers (v.5336) and I have come to a wall. Basically, this is what I have done:
1. Downloaded Drivers
2. Installed the kernel-source-2.4.20-30.9.i386.rpm
3. Changed my /etc/inittab file to boot into runlevel 3 (command line)
4. Exited X and ran:
I still get a message saying that I should append the --source-kernel-path command. My problem now is that I cannot seem to find where these files are. I am running RedHat 9 for the record. Whenever I run the .rpm (see 2.), I cannot gather information as to exactly WHERE these files are going. Can somebody please offer some guidance. I cannot find these files, by the way, in my /usr/src directory anywhere.
Finally, exactly how is the -source-kernel-path command run anyhow? Should it look like this:
(where /usr/src/linux is an example path)
[SOLVED] Wireless network is not finding my home router, since I installed Linux.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 14, 2014
I have newly installed Linux Mint on a laptop that used to run windows. At the beginning I had no driver so I installed 'firmware-b43-lpphy-installer' according to some random forum suggestion. Since then I have the wireless card recognized, and find networks around my laptop. But it found only once the network that I own. I can see all my neighbors networks, but mine is 'Out of range'. I tried to delete it, which changed nothing. I checked all other devices at home, and of friends that visited, all found it and connected without problems. These were all phones, windows PCs and one OS X machine.
My laptop is a Lenovo G550, 4 years old.
Running Linux Mint 15 Olivia 64 bit.
Rauter is Edimax BR-6424N V2.

adb not finding my device / phone (MacOS X)
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
Doing Android development on a Mac and this very new phone I have doesn't show up in the devices list in adb. Lots of other phones and devices work fine for me so I know my setup is good.
I have debugging enabled (Settings --> Applications --> Development --> USB debugging) on the phone, but it just doesn't show up when I run adb devices
