re-repost of 6.1 installation problem...

This is a repost, still have same problem…

As the subject line says, after I installed 6.1 the installer says it
can’t access the repository at file:///fs/cd0/repository. The CD drive
does not appear to be mounted and I am not sure of the exact command to
remount it (tried mount -t cd /dev/cd0 /cd0, it created /dev/cd0 but ls,
etc don’t work, installer still doesn’t work). I am not sure how much
6.1 got installed, should I see a different gui or anything? It looks
pretty much the same as 6.0…

This is a laptop computer, I got one response earlier saying it was
because the cd was a secondary slave (don’t know if this is true).
Nothing I can do about it anyway. The cd drive worked great under 6.0
patch b, in fact I installed 6.1 from the cd, was something changed in
the 6.1 cd driver?

Also, when I try to connect to the WWW repository, I get a ppp0 fatal
signal 11 after the modem connects. Again, this worked fine before I
upgraded.

I am at a loss what to try next, any help appreciated. Thanks.

Hello,

What’s concerning your problem with CD, try to boot
with DMA disabled. (.altboot)
It helped me.

Shelf looks different in 6.1. There is CD player, Pointer cam and other plag-ins in 6.1. What does

uname -a say?

Try the mount command again, like this:

mount -t cd /dev/cd0 /fs/cd0

It does not create /dev/cd0, it creates /fs/cd0, which is what package
installer is looking for.
