Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 238999
Nautilus' umount volume also ejects it, when it should not
Last modified: 2015-03-03 17:31:14 EST
Description of problem:
When I try to umount a CD media volume, from Nautilus 'File->Unmount Volume'
menu item, it also ejects the media from CD drive. What makes impossible to use
an application like 'brasero', to erase a CD-RW, for example. I have to manually
open a terminal window, and as root umount the media volume to perform the
erasing through 'brasero'.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Insert a CD media into CD drive
2.Wait a few seconds for the system mount it and Nautilus open its window
3.Go to 'File->Unmount volume' menu item, it ejects the media
With the ejection of the media, further operations that requires the media to be
not mounted cannot be performed, like burning or erasing. At least with 'brasero'.
When I choose the described menu item, the media actually be umounted, and not
also ejected from the device. So other operations can be performed. I mean, that
the menu item accomplishes with what it stands for.
How to mount it after umount from Nautilus' menu item??
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
I can't reproudce this behaviour here with Fedora 10.
CD unmounts but doesn't eject.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
