Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 127216
CDROM cannot be unmounted using KDE GUI on Fedora 2 Final
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:32 EDT
Description of problem:
It is possible to mount CDROM using KDE link to device tool, but it
cannot be unmounted. It is reported that device is busy and it is
needed to logout and login. That was not a problem on previous
versions of Fedora / Red Hat.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
It is always reproducible when you use KDE link to device tool in
order to mounting and unmounting CDROM.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put CD media into CD device
2. Click by right mouse button on KDE link to device icon on desktop
3. Click on mount menu item
4. Wait for a while. It is reported that device is mounted when you
get a green triangle on the lower right corner of KDE link to device icon
5. When device is mounted click by right mouse on KDE link to device
icon on desktop
6. Click on unmount menu item
You get two (!?) messages that device is busy and cannot be unmounted
It is excpected that device is unmounted.
I can logoff and login and then unmounting a device, but it is a very
strange way. That is why I have written a script containing only two
umount -l <device>
and I have made KDE link to application that refer to my script.
It is not too hard for me unmounting using console, but it is hard for
my five years old dotter.
Fedora Core 2 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 FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
Closed per above message and lack of response. Note that FC2 is not even
supported by Fedora Legacy currently.
