  5. MOUNTING THE CD-ROM ON UNIX SYSTEMS
  6. Before it can be read on UNIX systems, a CD-ROM must be mounted as a file system.

    On some systems and depending on the choices made by your system administrator, this action can be automatic and transparent.

    F

    For more information on this subject, refer to your system documentation for the volmgt command, for example.

    If manual mounting is required, you must have super-user rights (root). Prior to mounting, you must establish the device name of your CD-ROM drive and the name of the directory to which the CD-ROM structure is to be attached.

    F

    For more information on this subject, refer to your system documentation for the mount command.

    To mount the CD-ROM, you must be logged in as the super-user (root) and, according to your environment, execute one of the commands below adapted to the characteristics of your system.

    When this information has been obtained, mount the CD-ROM using the command (specific for each operating system) provided in the table below. You must substitute:

     

    cddev

    with your CD-ROM device name

     

    cddir

    with the CD-ROM mount directory

     

    Operating System

    Command

    AIX 5.1+

    mount -v cdfs -r /dev/cddev cddir

    Digital Unix 4+

    mount -t cdfs -o ro,noversion /dev/cddev cddir

    Linux

    mount t iso9660 /dev/cddev cddir

    HPUX

    mount /dev/dsk/cddev cddir -r -F cdfs

    Sinix 5.43+

    mount F hs o ro /dev/iosxx/cddev cddir

    Solaris 2.6+

    mount -F hsfs -o ro,nrr /dev/cddev cddir

    F

    Once mounting is complete, you must make sure that you are no longer logged in as the root when installing CFT.

     

  7. UNMOUNTING THE CD-ROM FROM UNIX SYSTEMS
  8. Any CD-ROM that has already been mounted must be unmounted before being removed from the drive.

    On some systems and depending on the choices made by your system administrator, this action can be automatic and transparent.

    F

    For more information on this subject, refer to your system documentation for the volmgt command, for example.

    If manual unmounting is required, it is easily unmounted by logging in as the super-user (root) and executing the umount command.

    F

    For more information on this subject, refer to your system documentation for the umount command.

    Log in as the super-user (root) and enter the command below adapted to your environment. Note that if any active process is currently using the CD-ROM, it cannot be unmounted.

    In the following command, replace cddir with the name of the CD-ROM mount directory.

     

    cd / ; umount cddir

     

    where

    cddir

    represents the name of the CD-ROM mount directory.

     

     

  9. INSTALLING ACROBAT READER
  10. The Acrobat Reader tools supplied with this CD-ROM are provided in the state in which they are available for downloading from the supplier's site (http:\\www.adobe.com).

    To install Acrobat Reader in English or French on Windows systems, access the acrobat\win32 directory and refer to the Adobe ReadMe.txt general information file.

    To install Acrobat Reader (English version only) on UNIX systems, access the acrobat directory and refer to the Adobe ReadMe.first.unix and ReadMe.first general information files.

    For more information on this software and how to install and use it, refer to the documentation supplied with the product or the supplier's Web site.

     

     

  11. INSTALLING CFT
  12. After reading the notes and requirements specific to your environment (PDF files in the CD-ROM doc/english or doc/francais subdirectories), start up the cd_instal procedure in the product subdirectory of the required release (cft/vxxx for example).

    By default, the cd_instal procedure supports English and French, and automatically adapts to the language used on your system. However, you can force the operating language manually.

     

    Type

    cd_instal uk for English.

     

    Type

    cd_instal fr for French.

    This procedure is used to select, in turn, the:

     

    ·

    Product

     

    ·

    Product release

     

    ·

    Operating system to be used

     

    ·

    Product technical level

    On completion of these choices, the process automatically continues with a conventional CFT installation, such as described in the general UNIX guide.

     

  13. CREATING INSTALLATION SUPPORTS

In some cases, you may be interested in extracting a specific CFT UNIX product release from the CD-ROM to transfer it on to another type of medium (tape, diskettes, and so on).

To do so on a UNIX system, start up the cd_extract procedure in the product subdirectory of the required release (cft/vxxx for example).

By default, the cd_extract procedure supports English and French, and automatically adapts to the language used on your system. However, you can force the operating language manually.

 

Type

cd_instal uk for English.

 

Type

cd_instal fr for French.

 

This procedure is used to select, in turn, the:

 

·

Product

 

·

Product release

 

·

Operating system to be used

 

·

Product technical level

 

·

Name of the storage device to be used

The resulting extraction can be used to install CFT UNIX, by following the extraction and installation procedures described in the general UNIX guide.
