Description of problem:
After a normal FC5t3 install, CD and DVD/DVD-RW drives are not listed in the fstab, and therefore not available from Gnome/etc for the user to use. The drives in question are IDE drives perminately in the system, not removable, etc.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install normal FC5t3 Install (selected Workstation, Web server, and other two options)
3. Look for optical drives in /etc/fstab, they aren't listed.
Actual Results: No optical drives listed in fstab.
Expected Results: All the available drives should be listed so the user can use them.
I'm closing this as not a bug. Please read up on how the dbus managed device
mounting works. I suggest you search the fedora-test-list archive for
discussions about gnome-mount operation.
Dvd drives should be accessible via the gnome desktop without any fstab entries
now. Re-file once you have installed available updates and retested gnome
I should have also said that the drives were not functioning period, nothing was
coming from dbus, nothing in Gnome, inserting disks didn't show anything, I was
completely unable to use the drives unless I manually mounted them.
However a reinstall and they worked fine, so something is weird as this is the
second thing I've found that was broken in one install and fine in the next.
I'll be trying again today from a network install from the latest image and see.
If I find this again, I'll re-open the bug.
Seems to be working with x86_64 FC5 released DVD.
