The installer does not find the cd.
First try to export the CD-ROM environment variable: (Especially for auto/supermount users e.g. Mandrake).
FreeBSD users: setenv SETUP_CDROM /path/to/your/mounted/cdrom
If the installer still does not find the cd, make sure your kernel has "Joliet extensions" enabled.
("Filesystems" -> "ISO 9660 CDROM file system support" -> "Microsoft Joliet CDROM extensions"
It is quite hard for me to explain to beginner users in my book how to find out the current cdrom mount point in modern distributions (because it varies depending on cdrom label) and then set environment variable and run the installer. What I can do is to instruct them to insert line like this into /etc/fstab:
Code: Select all
/dev/cdrom /media/cdrom auto umask=0,users,iocharset=utf8,noauto,ro,exec 0 0
because that's static solution and needs to be done only once. So now the question is - will this solution work with Loki installers? Is there any issue I should be aware of? And mainly - what is the default path the Loki installers use when searching for CDROM files? /media/cdrom? /media/cdrom0? /cdrom?
Thanks for an answer.
