Description of problem:
FC3 does not mount automatically my CD's or DVD's when inserted to
internal DVD-player. Manual mounting works ok. When I insert CD to my
external CD-player (Sony CRX120E) mounting is automatical.
Tried with "fresh install" and fully updated system, both fails.
There is no error messages available in logs related to this
problem. Only error message which I'm seeing is on boot and is assuming
generated by /etc/udev/scripts/ide-media.sh script:
cat: /proc/ide/hdc/media: Input/output error
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
hal-4.2-1.FC3, kernel-2.6.9-1.681_FC3, udev-039-10.FC3
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert CD/DVD to internal cd-player
2. CD spins for a while, but nothing happens
Actual Results: Nothing (well, the disk spins for awhile and makes sound)
Expected Results: FC3 should mount automatically the media in
internal player as it does with external player.
I have tried with latest stable udev (udev-039-10.FC3.5) and now I
have installed development version (udev-048-2)
Also tried with kernel-smp-2.6.9-1.1047_FC4, but it did not help.
But after installing
from development tree, automounting started to work ok with smp
kernels 2.6.9-1.1047_FC4 and 2.6.9-1.1049_FC4.
When booting with kernel-smp-2.6.9-1.681_FC3 ti does not work.
So it needs at least both latest development kernel and hal (as of
So, these should be fixed in stable tree also. Using dev packages is
not most confortable especially when those are not signed with gpg.
Looks like this issue was fixed in a Rawhide kernel - you need to bug
the kernel people to provide a FC3 update with the fix. Reassigning to
