Description Carlos Rodrigues 2004-12-06 22:38:55 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
managed entries in fstab related to DVD-ROM drives should be marked "ro", otherwise mounting on the console or shell always gives this message:

"mount: block device /dev/hdd is write-protected, mounting read-only"

This is not critical or anything (even moreso because one can always "un-manage" a device), but it is an annoyance for those that use the command line alot.

Sorry, that would screw DVD-RAM users - see bug 139600 for details.
