Storage Media

Postby fred108 » Sun Apr 06, 2008 12:23

Hi, I've just done a stupid thing and ran etc-update without doing a backup. I thought I had everything under control, until I tried to access my cd-rom and usb flash drives. Can anyone help me getting these devices back up and running as I don't really want to do a clean install. I'm using Sabayon mini 3.4 and have it as my main distro. Great distro!!! Cheers and thanks in advance

does mount -t iso9660 -o ro <device> <dir> and mount /dev/sdx1 <dir> still work for mounting cdroms and flash drives?

Thanks for the reply. I found an old backup I did a few weeks ago and was able to get the info I needed from that. I've been meaning to setup an automatic daily backup of the config files in the /etc directory and will do it in the next few days. Cheers
