Description Rogelio Noriega 2000-08-14 00:39:11 UTC
CD can be ejected from drive while it is mounted and thus causing a bunch 
of failure.  From my understanding, in RH6.2 the CD would not eject unless 
it is unmounted first.

Comment 1 Preston Brown 2000-08-14 16:21:29 UTC
during installation or after you are up and running? I assume during

Comment 2 Erik Troan 2000-08-14 18:40:58 UTC
I can't reproduce this in anaconda. I've heard magicdev causes this, but that's
still a kernel bug. I don't know why kernel folks seem to insist that it's
reasonable for a userspace program to break the kernel by repeatedly opening a
device. Good idea or not, it shouldn't affect the kernel.

Comment 3 Michael K. Johnson 2000-08-14 19:03:14 UTC
The kernel asks the drive to lock its door.  Lots of cdrom drives
are buggy and don't actually lock the door when they say they do.
I fail to see how this is a Linux kernel bug.

Comment 4 Rogelio Noriega 2000-08-29 13:16:58 UTC
We are using the same systems that we tested 6.2 on and the cdrom did not eject 
when mounted I don't think our hardware is the problem.

Comment 5 Rogelio Noriega 2000-09-06 17:15:29 UTC
After the install and RH is up and running you can eject the cd.
