DoubleVision for Linux/UNIX CD-ROM Instructions

DoubleVision Pro for Unix/Linux CDROM Instructions

Most operating systems will “automount” an inserted CD ROM. If this function is disabled or not working on your system, you can use following instructions to mount the Tridia Product CD.

Mounting Your CD ROM (UNIX/Linux)

  1. Become the Root user by issuing the following command:

su root [Enter]

  1. UNIX Only. Choose a directory to mount the CD ROM from.

While any subdirectory will work, Tridia recommends creating a subdirectory called cdrom. To create a subdirectory, issue the following command:

mkdir /<subdirectory>

The remainder of these instructions assume a directory named cdrom.

  1. Mount the Tridia Product CD ROM. If your operating system is not listed, consult the manufacturer’s documentation for instructions on mounting CD ROMs.
Platform Mount Command
AIX mount -r -v cdrfs /dev/cd0 /cdrom
HP-UX mount -F cdfs -r /dev/dsk/c0t6d0 /cdrom
SOLARIS SPARC mount -F hsfs -r /dev/sr0 /cdrom
Linux mount -r /dev/cdrom /cdrom

Note: Typically <cdrom device name> is similar to /dev/cd0 or dev/cdrom. If you need additional assistance in determining your CD ROM device name, please contact Tridia technical support.

  1. UNIX Only: Change to the cdrom directory by typing cd /cdrom [Enter].

If you are using Solaris and Volume Manager, type cd/<mount point>/Volume_3 [Enter.]

Linux Only: Change to the cdrom directory by typing cd /mnt/cdrom [Enter].

  1. Type ./install.cd [Enter].
  2. Specify your operating system platform.
  3. Select the Tridia product to install.
  4. Refer to the installation instructions for the product you are installing.

Unmounting Your CD ROM (UNIX/Linux)

UNIX or Linux: Use the following command to unmount the Tridia CD ROM

umount / cdrom [Enter]

For SOLARIS X86.2 or SOLARIS SPARC 2.x, after the umount command, issue the following command: eject cdrom [Enter]
