Description of problem:
Whenever I install an RPM from a CD, after the RPM finishes installing, the CD unmounts. I try to mount it back, but I get an error message: mount: /mnt/cdrom is not in /etc/fstab. There is not even an appropriate device in /dev for the CD-ROM drive.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.9 - rpm-4.3.2
Steps to Reproduce:
1.In FC3, install an RPM from a CD/DVD
2.Go to a terminal and type mount /mnt/cdrom
Actual Results: Error message - /mnt/cdrom is not in /etc/fstab
Expected Results: The CD should have mounted properly
This has nothing whatsoever to do with rpm. Make sure that your cdrom is not being automounted.
