I am trying to get my cdrom to allow exec so I can run an install script
on the cdrom. I unmounted the drive, changed fstab to
/dev/hdd /cdrw iso9660 exec,noauto,user,ro 0
it used to be (/dev/hdd /cdrw iso9660 noauto,user,ro 0 0).
When I remount I still get this:
/dev/hdd on /cdrw type iso9660 (ro,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
If I do a mount /dev/hdd -t iso9660 -o exec,ro /cdrw then it does what
I want it to.
I'm assuming that some sort of security has been setup that won't allow
a cd to be mounted that allows executable content, but when I am root, I
should like to override it.
