I just tried to upgrade my Red Hat installation from Version 7.1 to 7.2. I
know of several people who have done this successfully, but not me. The
upgrade changed the file systems from ext2 to ext3 and then later crashed.
I exited the installation but the file systems were not restored and I could
not reboot 7.1.
So I did a clean installation of 7.2 from CD. After completing the
installation and rebooting, I find I cannot mount my CDROM (the same one
that I used for the installation). The error message tells me that the
CDROM is not a valid block device. What does this mean and how is it fixed?
This installation will be used for cross platform embedded system
development and will not be connected to a network. Are there applicaitons
that can be shutdown (like sendmail) that will improve system performance?
If so how is this done?
