gnome-mount makes mounted CD data inaccesible
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:45:34 EST
Description of problem:
gnome-mount when fed with an iso9660 CD created on Mac for some reasons
insist on mounting it with udf filesystem type even if udf is NOT listed
in /etc/filesystems. It passess 'uid=<some_value>' option to mount but
this ends up with the following structure
A directory named by "<a_random_garbage_string>" indeed gets
"<some_value>.4294967295" ownership (4294967295 happens to be -1,
when interpreted signed, on this machine) but "<some_directory_name>"
happens to have 'rwxrwx--x" permissions and "501.501" ownership where
"501" is uid and gid from Mac of somebody who wrote that CD.
See bug #159860. All real data sit below this "<some_directory_name>"
and, unless your uid happens to be 501 too, are not accessible.
If I will mount that CD with
mount -oro,uid=<some_value> /dev/cdrom /some/mount/point
then this CD mounts with 'iso9660' filesystem type, even without
explicitly specifying that, and there are no access problems.
The real issue is that I cannot dissuade gnome-mount from using
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome-mount-0.4-5 and gnome-mount-0.4-7 from rawhide
