Description John Reiser 2004-09-07 17:42:55 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.2) Gecko/20040809 Description of problem: During early install from physical CD-ROM of FC3-re0903.0-i386-disc1-ftp.iso, pushing the eject button on the physical drive does not not eject the media; the door is locked. This is a problem if bootable media was left in the drive accidentally at the previous shutdown, and you don't want to boot from it. Also, it can defeat the trick of booting just to the "boot: " prompt, switching media, and continuing with the new CD-ROM. This can be a handy work-around for bugs, bad media, etc. The only way I could find to unlock the door and eject was to "boot: linux text", enter the mediacheck phase, and use the Eject button in the dialog. (Probably "boot: linux mediacheck" would work, too.) Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): anaconda-10.0.2-0.20040901235037.1.i386.rpm How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Hard boot FC3-re0903.0-i386-disc1-ftp.iso from physical CD-ROM. 2. At the "boot: " prompt, push the eject button on the physical drive. 3. Actual Results: Drive does not eject the media; the door is locked. Expected Results: Drive ejects the media. Additional info: In this case the drive is SAMSUNG DVD-ROM SD-816B, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM.

Can you eject it with the test1 cd? (So that I can bracket where this changed in isolinux)
Comment 2 John Reiser 2004-09-07 19:10:15 UTC
Yes, booting from FC3-test1-i386-disc1 of 2004-07-14 allows eject at the "boot: " prompt, by pushing the eject button on the physical drive.

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test release, reopen and change the version to match. Thank you!
Comment 4 John Thacker 2006-10-30 14:32:30 UTC
Closing per lack of response to previous request for information. Note that FC3 and FC4 are supported by Fedora Legacy for security fixes only. Please install a still supported version and retest. If it still occurs on FC5 or FC6, please reopen and assign to the correct version. Otherwise, if this a security issue, please change the product to Fedora Legacy. Thanks, and we are sorry that we did not get to this bug earlier.
