Description of problem:
Attempting to autorun the RHEL4 beta 1 Documentation CD silently fails
(at least, from the GNOME desktop it seems silent to me).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in to GNOME.
2. Insert Documentation CD.
3. GNOME will ask you, "Do you want to run
/media/cdrw_dvdrom/autorun?" (or something like that). Click "Yes".

Actual Results:  After clicking "Yes", nothing happens.

Expected Results:  User should be prompted for root password, and
interactive package installation GUI stuff should begin.

Additional info:

The autorun script appears to try to run redhat-cdinstall-helper.
AFAICT this no longer exists and has been replaced by

If you need any more info from me, just ask.

Comment 2 John Ha 2004-09-29 22:19:11 UTC
Thank you very much for the report. You are correct in your
assessment. The name of the application called in the autorun script
should be /usr/bin/system-cdinstall-helper. The fix will do the
appropriate action of allowing users to install the documentation
packages via the graphical Package Management Tool upon CD insertion.

Thanks again for your report.
