Re: [opensuse] Still trying to get DVD to work

I think I'm zeroing in on the problem (I hope). A "lshal" shows all devices
including the dvd drive /dev/hdc AND the 3.5GB data dvd that is in
it. "lshal -m" will toggle from true to false when the media is ejected,
but none of this is picked up by KDE or the OS.

Here, I think, is the meat:

# halmount

/dev/hdd3 on /home type ext3
/dev/hdd1 on / type ext3
/dev/hdb1 -> ? type vfat
/dev/hda4 -> ? type reiserfs
/dev/hda3 -> ? type reiserfs
/dev/hda1 -> ? type reiserfs

To explain this a bit, hda has Suse 9.1, hdb is XP, hdc is dvd and hdd is
Suse 10.2. hda and hdb are disabled in bios, forcing the system to boot to
either hdc (if the Suse dvd is inserted) or hdd. Hey, it works, especially
for testing.

Not having access to another 10.2 box (my mom is 80 miles away and on a
dialup), I don't have anything to compare with. What does a working
system's "halmount" report?
