Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 138524
eject doesn't eject CD if the drive is a cdrecorder
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:54 EST
Description of problem:
The application doesn't look for cdrecorder as default device so if
you try to eject CD from such drive it doesn't work. It is not
possible to eject CD in Gnome 2.8 and in other software that uses
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always (I think)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. First you should have cdrecorder mount point /media/cdrecorder in
/etc/fstab (standard entry created by Fedora Core 3 installer).
2. Mount /media/cdrecorder.
3. Then execute "eject"
An error is reported: "eject: unable to find or open device for: `cdrom'"
The application should also check for 'cdrecorder' as default device,
not only 'cdrom'.
Maybe it should be an array of default devices not only on 'cdrom'.
it looks like the cdrom symlink is missing in /dev. Please update
udev-039-10.FC3.1 in fc3 updates. It will fix this problem.
