View Full Version : How to access DVD

16th November 2015, 03:33 AM
I'm new on Linux and i have installed Fedora server 23 and now would like to access the "Package" directory on the DVD, but i don't know how to access it.

What is the command to see my devices?
I'm on [root@localhasot ~]#

Thx for your help

This is how you can do it in a terminal: you need to mount the dvd to a point on the filesystem. You could use /mnt or any other point of your choice. You might try (as root):

mount -t auto /dev/sr0 /mnt

where /dev/sr0 is the device in which you place the dvd disk, and /mnt is the mount point to which you need to navigate to get to the files on the disk. So then you can run (as an ordinary user rather than root) :

cd /mnt

and you should see the files in the top level of the dvd. Note that /dev/sr0 is usually the first dvd and cd disk reading and writing device. If you have only one such device, then it's likely called that.

Cool! It's working!
I got so many questions, but i think i will have to learn more commands before, my linux is so far, i don't remember much... :)
