[13:36:20] <TonyHoyt> Hello.
[14:52:51] <wjp> hi
[14:53:21] <TonyHoyt> How's Exile 3 doing for you, Wjp?
[14:53:33] <wjp> haven't
[14:53:36] <wjp> (oops)
[14:53:40] <wjp> played it since last night
[14:54:00] <wjp> but I'm doing ok, generally
[14:54:16] <wjp> I'm kind of saving up a lot of money, atm
[14:55:29] <TonyHoyt> Saving money in the game you mean?
[14:55:49] <TonyHoyt> I've heard money can be a bit problem with all the games. Specialy when you have to buy up stats.
[14:56:58] <wjp> yes, exile 3 is that kind of game
[14:57:12] <wjp> you need both skill points and gold for advancing stats
[14:57:23] <wjp> I usually make just enough money for that
[14:57:45] <wjp> however, now I need _lots_ of money to buy several necessary items
[14:57:53] <TonyHoyt> *nods* Cool cool. Hey. I finaly played Exult yesterday for the first time since the 0.40 release. *Chuckles*
[14:58:28] <TonyHoyt> Money for items is a pain, specialy when you must combine it with equipment. Is it weapons, spells, what?

[20:14:11] --> TonyHoyt has joined #exult
[20:14:18] <TonyHoyt> Hello again people.
[20:20:01] <jameson> wb
[20:50:23] <TonyHoyt> Thanks.
[20:50:59] <TonyHoyt> Does anyone know how to manual mount a blasted cd drive on a SunOS System?! i'm trying to install u7 and I can't get it reconize the cd.
[20:51:55] <jameson> Well, the CD probably uses ISO9660, which ought to be recognized...
[20:52:24] <jameson> Or does it have a different fs? Are you using Joliet?
[20:52:49] <TonyHoyt> It's not being reconized by The system. Usually I can pop in a CD, open the File Manager and it shows the CD. But this time, it doesn't. I'm assumeing because it's not a ufs cd. But I could be wrong.
[20:53:34] <TonyHoyt> I"m fairly sure the cd is nothing more then a old 0SI9660 formated CD. But I can't seem to figure out how to mount the sucker.
[20:53:36] <jameson> No, that sounds like a sensible explanation.
[20:53:44] <jameson> Are you root on that box?
[20:53:50] <TonyHoyt> Yup yup.
[20:54:13] <jameson> Try using 'mount' explicitly, and specify the fs type with -F.
[20:54:17] <TonyHoyt> I've done something like this for linux but not for Sun. So I don't know. might be me.
[20:54:44] <TonyHoyt> Well here's the other thing, What device is my cd drive? I think I know but everytime i try to mount to it, it says "already mounted' or 'busy'.
[20:55:14] <jameson> It should be listed in /etc/vfstab
[20:55:43] <TonyHoyt> Hmmmm Let me look
[20:55:58] <jameson> Well, actually, I'm not sure if that's the way this works on SunOS...
[20:55:59] <TonyHoyt> Hmm Ope, don't see it.
[20:56:04] <TonyHoyt> ope -> nope
[20:56:26] <jameson> Hmm...
[20:56:47] <TonyHoyt> trying again. didn't work the first time.
[20:58:39] <TonyHoyt> OKay I'm typeing this... mount -F osi9660 -r /cdrom /dev/dsk/c0t6d0s0
[20:58:50] <TonyHoyt> and getting this 'mount: operation not applicable to FSType osi9660'
[21:00:12] <jameson> Try ISO instead of osi...
[21:00:36] <jameson> /dev/dsk/c0t6d0s0 appears to be the right device, though.
[21:01:11] <TonyHoyt> doh!
[21:01:13] <TonyHoyt> okay.
[21:01:20] <TonyHoyt> Been playing too much UO lately.
[21:01:30] <jameson> lol
[21:02:36] <TonyHoyt> Drat, same message again.
[21:02:44] <TonyHoyt> I even did iso, and ISO.
[21:02:54] <TonyHoyt> ISO9660 Right?
[21:03:11] <jameson> ISO9660, yes.
[21:04:12] <TonyHoyt> *sigh* Doesn't seem to like it. Lord knows why.
[21:04:14] <jameson> Maybe 'iso9660'?
[21:04:17] <TonyHoyt> #*$(# stupid computer.
[21:05:18] <jameson> A newsgroup post suggests '-rt hsfs' instead of '-F iso9660'
[21:05:23] <TonyHoyt> hmmm
[21:06:23] <TonyHoyt> And now.. I get this 'mount: /dev/dsk/c0t6d0s0 is already mounted, /cdrom is busy,
[21:06:26] <TonyHoyt> or allowable number of mount points exceeded'
[21:07:00] <jameson> Actually, they were using a different device file, too: /dev/sr0
[21:07:02] <TonyHoyt> ahhh forget it. I'll just try to find a new way to e-mail it to myself *grumbles* And my current isp limits my e-mail size to somewhere around 10 megs.
[21:07:23] <jameson> mount -t hsfs /dev/sr0 /cdrom
[21:07:34] <TonyHoyt> tried it no luck.
[21:07:36] <jameson> provided that /cdrom is the mount point (Solaris 1.0)
[21:07:43] <TonyHoyt> That it is.
[21:07:55] <TonyHoyt> But I'm geting /dev/sr0 is already mounted.
[21:08:50] <jameson> Hmm... maybe there's something weird in the kernel... try umounting it first.
[21:09:07] <TonyHoyt> hmmm
[21:09:55] <TonyHoyt> All comes back, "blah blah blah not mounted"
[21:10:05] <jameson> Weird.
[21:10:09] <TonyHoyt> Forget it for now, I can't trouble myself. I have 20 minutes to work on something else.
[21:10:17] <TonyHoyt> So I"ll try to find an alternative way to do it.
[21:10:36] <TonyHoyt> e-mail or use some ftp space. *shrugs* Something...
[21:10:52] <TonyHoyt> u7 is like 7MB big when you zip it up.
[21:14:25] <jameson> Can't find anything in the Sun online support DB either.
[21:14:27] <jameson> Sorry.
[21:25:27] <TonyHoyt> Got to run.
[21:25:29] <TonyHoyt> Thanks for the help.
