Description Dennis Wagelaar 2007-02-10 15:05:01 EST
Description of problem:
When inserting a CD or DVD in my DVD-writer, gnome fails to mount it. It gives
an error message saying: "Cannot mount volume. Error

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Insert CD or DVD.

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
No automount, but above error message. The DVD drive icon totally disappears
from nautilus, as if the drive did not exist.

Expected results:
CD or DVD mounted.

Additional info:

Before today, I've had no problems. As of today, I can't seem to mount anything
dynamic, including USB sticks and my camera. The only update that got installed
today is util-linux-2.13-0.46.fc6. Reverting to the previous util-linux did not
help. Trouble started after trying to burn a data DVD in K3B.

The problem went away yesterday (February 13th 2007) after running a package
update. The log contains my update history.

Comment 5 Dennis Wagelaar 2007-02-14 03:38:09 EST
Trying to burn a DVD "hangs" all applications trying to do any I/O to that
particular IDE channel (channel holds DVD writer and one harddisk containing
/home). After some time, the harddisk's partitions are mounted read-only by the
kernel, triggering several journal errors. That likely triggered this issue.

I guess this particular issue is solved. I'll do some more research on what goes
wrong on that particular IDE channel and file it in a separate bug, if necessary.
