The file /etc/fstab is standard across all distributions. In your fstab, make sure the line pertaining to the DVD is set as such:
- Code: Select all
/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom auto exec,unhide,defaults,noauto,rw,users 0 0
The 'unhide' option is crucial in this case, as the formatting of the DVD is very different from what Blizzard has done before with their other WoW discs. Also, when you load the DVD (I would suggest using either Konqueror or Dolphin if you are unused to the command line interface), one of the easiest things to do is to copy the files from the DVD to a directory in your home as root, and then change the permissions on all the files to 777. There is something funky with the user and groups attributions of the files, but it's been awhile since I looked at it to tell you exactly what was going on. I used the dirty hack of changing everything via chmod in a hurry, just to get the game installed, as I had waited in line for it for 90 minutes at the midnight party, and just wanted to play the content.
