Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 24067
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:42 EDT
After magicdev disables locking, the file /proc/sys/dev/cdrom/lock
still has the value '1'. ( should be '0' )
Writing '1' to the file has no effect ( it should turn locking on )
Writing '0' and then '1' turns locking on.
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Gold release
This is related to bug 6006
Doug, is this related to the disk not being reported correctly
as removeable bug that you have been looking at lately for Dell?
Either way, could you please look into this?
This isn't actually a bug (although it sounds like one). The file
/proc/sys/dev/cdrom/lock is not a state file, it's a default mode file. It is
global to the entire cdrom driver. Magicdev is making changes to a specific
cdrom instance. Changing the global default behavior is not suppossed to change
the behavior of a specific instance of cdrom. If anything, the fact that
setting the contents to 0 and then back to 1 overrides the change that magicdev
has already made should be considered a bug. If you want this changed, it can
be done, but it is a very low priority in my opinion.
