Description of problem:
Running autorun from an FC5T2 DVD in FC4, fails.

$ LANG=C ./autorun
hal devs is {'/dev/hdd': '/media/cdrom'}
Unable to get lock on device /dev/hdd: cd devs locked by system-config-packages
hal devs is {}

system-config-packages isn't even in test2, so not sure how you got it installed
(... and, yes, that hasn't made it into pirut yet as the CD stuff isn't pushed
down to the yum level)
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2006-01-20 12:25:40 EST
I don't have system-config-packages installed.

I only logged it under that because there is no system-cdinstall-helper package
in bugzilla, so I ran an rpm -q --provides on an FC4 box.

system-cdinstall-helper is the broken bit..
Comment 3 Rahul Sundaram 2006-02-20 06:06:51 EST

These bugs are being closed since a large number of updates have been released
after the FC5 test1 and test2 releases. Kindly update your system by running yum
update as root user or try out the third and final test version of FC5 being
released in a short while and verify if the bugs are still present on the system
.Reopen or file new bug reports as appropriate after confirming the presence of
this issue. Thanks
Comment 4 John Thacker 2006-04-21 21:36:50 EDT
I don't even see autorun on a FC5 DVD.  It must have been there to run
system-config-packages, which was removed.  Hence that's the problem.  Must be
fixed in FC5.
