    Default Install question

    I have a few questions in reference to something I noticed while booting my backtrack 4 install. I see the following message with a failed beside it. However, the system comes up without problem. I am wondering if I did something wrong on the install or why exactly I see the following info with a failed beside it.


    Mounting local fle system...
    mount: mount point /mnt/sr0 does not exist
    fuse: failed to access mountpoint /mnt/sda1: no such file or directory
    /mnt/sda2 does not exist


    :edit
    I wanted to add that I am not sure what /mnt/sr0 would be and sda1 is the windows partition. The backtrack partition is sda2. I can go into the directory after it boots up.
    Thanks

    You're getting the errors because you haven't created the mount points. When it doesn't exist it means the folder that the dev point mounts too hasn't been created.
    Code:
    # mkdir -p /mnt/{sr0,sda1,sda2}
    sr0 is most likely your CD/DVD drive. That is what mine is called.

    Default Thanks

    I had looked at my install and realized several things I had done wrong along the way. I appreciate the help your post prompted me to look at things I hadn't thought about.
