MOUNT_CD9660(8)		  BSD System Manager's Manual	       MOUNT_CD9660(8)

     mount_cd9660 -- mount an ISO-9660 filesystem

     mount_cd9660 [-begjrv] [-o	options] [-s startsector] special | node

     The mount_cd9660 command attaches the ISO-9660 filesystem residing	on the
     device special to the global filesystem namespace at the location indi-
     cated by node.  This command is normally executed by mount(8) at boot

     The options are as	follows:

     -b	     Relax checking for	Supplementary Volume Descriptor	Flags field
	     which is set to a wrong value on some Joliet formatted disks.

     -e	     Enable the	use of extended	attributes.

     -g	     Do	not strip version numbers on files.  (By default, if there are
	     files with	different version numbers on the disk, only the	last
	     one will be listed.)  In either case, files may be	opened without
	     explicitly	stating	a version number.

     -j	     Do	not use	any Joliet extensions included in the filesystem.

     -o	     Options are specified with	a -o flag followed by a	comma sepa-
	     rated string of options.  See the mount(8)	man page for possible
	     options and their meanings.  The following	cd9660 specific	op-
	     tions are available:

	     extatt	     Same as -e.
	     gens	     Same as -g.
	     nojoliet	     Same as -j.
	     norrip	     Same as -r.
	     nostrictjoliet  Same as -b.

     -r	     Do	not use	any Rockridge extensions included in the filesystem.

     -s	startsector
	     Start the filesystem at startsector.  Normally, if	the underlying
	     device is a CD-ROM	drive, mount_cd9660 will try to	figure out the
	     last track	from the CD-ROM	containing data, and start the
	     filesystem	there.	If the device is not a CD-ROM, or the table of
	     contents cannot be	examined, the filesystem will be started at
	     sector 0.	This option can	be used	to override the	behaviour.
	     Note that startsector is measured in CD-ROM blocks, with 2048
	     bytes each.  This is the same as for example the info command of
	     cdcontrol(1) is printing.	It is possible to mount	an arbitrary
	     session of	a multi-session	CD by specifying the correct
	     startsector here.

     -v	     Be	verbose	about the starting sector decisions made.

     The following command can be used to mount	a Kodak	Photo-CD:

	   mount_cd9660	-o rw -v -s 0 /dev/cd0c	/cdrom

     cdcontrol(1), mount(2), unmount(2), fstab(5), mount(8)

     POSIX device node mapping is currently not	supported.

     Version numbers are not stripped if Rockridge extensions are in use.  In
     this case,	accessing files	that don't have	Rockridge names	without	ver-
     sion numbers gets the one with the	lowest version number and not the one
     with the highest.

     There is no ECMA support.

     The mount_cd9660 utility first appeared in	4.4BSD.
