Thread: Program for mounting cd/dvd

    Post Program for mounting cd/dvd

    Hi,
    I recently broke my dvd-rom cable. So now when I whant to install some software through YaST it needs the openSUSE 11.0 dvd. Is it possible to mount the .iso and continue the installation?

    and if so, anyone knows a good program for that? somewhat like deamon-tools for windows.

    Furious worked lika a charm. But "Package selection YaST" still whants me to insert a openSUSE dvd. Is there a way to solve this?

    Yast - Software - Repositories

    In the list find the one that looks like this
