Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 231279
multisession dvd sometimes freeze mouse+keyboard and often can not be mounted
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:49:36 EST
Description of problem:
multisession dvd's sometimes freeze mouse (can still be moved, but is not able
to click on anything) + keyboard (doesn't work at all). Sometimes the very same
medium can be mounted, sometimes not.
Note: When a medium has been written with Nero, root can mount it just with:
"mount /dev/hdc /mnt/".
But when medium has been written with gnomebaker, mounting results in:
"mount: block device /dev/hdc is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: you must specify the filesystem type"
When trying to mount with: "mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdc /mnt/", medium gets
sometimes ejected with error, somtimes it just spin's the drive at maximum speed
with following message: "mount: block device /dev/hdc is write-protected,
mounting read-only", but after that, nothing happens.
This medium works correct with win98SE and Knoppix 3.6 !
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
hal-0.5.8.1-6.fc6, kernel 2.6.19-1.2895.fc6
insert any multisession dvd
Steps to Reproduce:
1.insert any multisession dvd, nothing happens on desktop, or system freezes
2.try to mount as root, results often in failure: medium gets ejected for some
reason, instead of being mounted
inserting multisession dvd should let an icon appear, and user should be asked
what to do with it
The same problem with knoppix 5.1.1. BUT not with 3.6, which works correct
It was not a hal-bug, but a kernel-bug. Switching back to kernel
2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 solved this issue: Single session DVD's and multisession DVD's
are getting mounted properly (and automatically). But every kernel since
2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 has the described issue (2007/03/12).
(This is a mass-update to all current FC6 kernel bugs in NEW state)
I'm reviewing this bug list as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt
to isolate current bugs in the Fedora kernel.
I am CC'ing myself to this bug, however this version of Fedora is no longer
Please attempt to reproduce this bug with a current version of Fedora (presently
Fedora 8). If the bug no longer exists, please close the bug or I'll do so in a
few days if there is no further information lodged.
Thanks for using Fedora!
Sorry, the solution for me was to install DEBIAN 4.1. On 2008/01/17 i'll get my
broadband connection. Perhaps then i'll try Fedora's latest.
In the meantime, I'll close this an INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Feel free to re-open if
the problem persists after you get a chance to retest and I'll try and help you
