Description of problem:
Every time I install FC3test3 my CD-ROM unit is detected as a CD-R
Drive and nautilus opens (always) the CD/DVD Creator window when I
click its icon inside Computer, even if I just open the drive's tray,
so I can't see the contents of my disc until I manually mount it and
browse to /media/cdrom. Curiously, I also have a CD-RW unit that works
allright and I can browse it directly from Computer.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC3test3 with an LG GCR-8523B CD-ROM unit.
2. Open the disc tray (by now it acts as if a disc was already in).
3. Insert any data CD (not blank).
4. Try to see its contents through Computer or the desktop icon.
Actual Results: The CD/DVD Creator windows appears (empty).
Expected Results: The contents of the CD should be seen.
During this process no error is displayed. I've tried all
gnome-volume-manager configurations. I've upgraded hal, udev, dbus,
nautilus. The failing unit is an LG GCR-8523B and I also have a CD-RW
unit (LG GCE-8523B) that works ok.
Does this still happen with the FC3 final?
Yes it happens in FC3 final. But after upgrading to newer versions of
dbus, nautilus and nautilus-cd-burner the problem is gone. I don't
know exactly which one is the cause because I haven't had a chance to
check them individually, but the icons inside the "Computer" window
also changed names (instead of CD-R > cd-rom ; instead of CD-RW >
cdrecorder), so I think gnome-volume-manager is not the source of
Upgrading from source or as a FC3 update?
First I upgraded everything using up2date and the bug was still
there. Then I used third party RPM packages (which were newer in
version) of those three components and that fixed it. Right now I
can't check which versions I'm using, but I'm talking about two or
three days ago.
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.
Closing per lack of response to previous request for information. This bug was
originally filed against a much earlier version of Fedora Core, and significant
changes have taken place since the last version for which this bug is confirmed.
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.
