after automaount mounts an initial cdrom, if the cdrom is unmounted
(umount /dev/cdrom) and a new cdrom is mounted. the drive shows as busy
and the contents are not found unless you perform a reboot
Steps to Reproduce:
1.place a cdrom in cdrom drive and let automount mount dick.
2.remove cdrom and load a diffrent cdrom into drive letting auto mount
3. try to access drive through shell or by browsing. folders will not be
4. at a shell prompt, type umount /dev/cdrom. drive will return a result
of being busy. typing mount /dev/cdrom will return the message that drive
is already mounted.
Actual Results: drive contents were inaccesable
Expected Results: drive contents should hve been accessable through shell
or file manager
I don't think this is the am-utils component. (It sounds like either autorun or
magicdev.) Are you using either GNOME or KDE?
I am running gnome.
