Best of Technical Support
When I try to mount my ATAPI CD-ROM (I have two Pioneers as masters on 2-IDE and a Delta as slave on 2-IDE; both drives are recognized by the kernel as hdc and hdd), I get an error message which states, “mount fs: type 9660 not supported by kernel”. I have tried to modify the /etc/fstab with:
/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto 0,0 /dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom01 iso9660 noauto 0,0
I still get the same error. Can you help me? —Kim Nielsen, Red Hat 5.1
This is happening because your kernel wasn't compiled to support the iso9660 file system, and you don't seem to be able to load the module. Try this first:
moremagic:~# cat /proc/filesystems ext2 minix nodev proc vfat nodev autofs nodev nfs iso9660
If you don't see iso9660, you should have an isofs module (unless you recompiled your own kernel). If typing insmod isofs and then mounting your CD-ROM works, your problem may be that kerneld isn't running. Try:
moremagic:~# ps auxww | grep kernel[dD] root 38 0.0 0.3 756 364 ? S 01:15 0:00 /sbin/kerneld
If kerneld is not there, you will need to start it yourself. —Marc Merlin, firstname.lastname@example.org

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
