Linux (Xubuntu) - Advanced Install can't find ISO Mounted CD Image

Post by camjrp »

The title says it all. I have the iso images of Red Aler, Dune 200 and Tiberian Dawn.
When i try to install all three games with the advanced install options, the installer can't fin any of the mounted images.
To mount them, im using Furious Iso Mount.
Thanks in advance

Try mounting the isos on /mount/cdrom.

I'm not familiar with Furious Iso Mount or the XFCE window manager - I know others like Gnome can mount isos directly through the file explorer. Have you checked to see if XFCE has this functionality? Have you tried mounting from the commandline?

Hi Sleipnir. Thanks for the answer
I tried to mount the iso using the terminal. Everything resulted ok, and the iso was mounted properly.
However, the Openra advanced installer still can't detect it :/

Is there a way to indicate to the installer where to search?

Just to check - are you using the isos that were released as freeware (e.g. from https://cncnz.com/features/freeware-cla ... uer-games/), or something different?

Try installing gnome-disk-utility and use the context menu option to mount and dismount iso images.

./OpenRA.Mods.Common/Widgets/Logic/Installation/InstallFromDiscLogic.cs seems to search each drive and after check if is of type cdrom.

similar:

drive_list.cs

Code: Select all

using System;
using System.IO;

public class DriveList
{
        static public void Main()
        {
                var dl =  DriveInfo.GetDrives();
                for (var i = 0; i < dl.Length; i++) {
                        var d = dl[i];
                        if (d.DriveType == DriveType.CDRom) {
                                Console.WriteLine(d);
                        }
                }
        }
}
# Compile
mono-scs drive_list.sc
# Run
mono drive_list.exe
# Should list your cdrom mount path at least.
