What blocked first was the mount of the CDROM, so because they are serialized
I understand now why all the sunsequent mounts failed too.. :-(
It's a mystery to me, but right now I tried the following:
- mounting and unmounting an ext2 partition
- mounting and unmounting a vfat partition
- mounting and unmounting the CDROM
and all of them worked !!!
Absolutely *nothing* has changed in my machine's setup, except I rebooted it
, but I already did it *many* times yesterday, so I don't know what to say.
Maybe a temporary hardware problem ??? :-(((
I thank both of you for your interest !
