Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 131786
eject unable to find open device
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:48 EST
Description of problem: eject can't eject the CDROM device since
/dev/cdrom really doesn't exist any longer with hal/udev in FC3
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run eject from the console (as root, even)
eject: unable to find or open device for: `cdrom'
Will eject cdrom
Additional info: This is because hal/udev and the new FHS conformation
makes things look at /media instead. eject is hardwired to eject
/mnt/cdrom by default
So doing eject /media/cdrom works. eject should be fixed to do this
Also, because now there's hal/udev, on an x86 laptop, it created
mountpoints for /media/dvdrom. Running eject, fails again
Rather, I'd think /dev/cdrom* should be created.
i cannot reproduce this probleme on my machine with udev/hal enable.
how do you mount your cdrom? using automount?
what is the cdrom mount device and mounntpoints?
could you please send me the output of "cat /proc/mounts" after cdrom
is mounted and the /etc/fstab. Thanks
i have upload a test version of eject, which probably fixes this
problem. please let me know if this problem is fixed. Thanks
