Description Roderic Morris 2007-10-14 21:37:03 EDT
Description of problem: right-clicking on a device in rhythmbox and clicking
"eject" doesn't eject media as it should, but just brings up a dialog with a red
circle with a white line inside, and a close button.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 0.11.2-9.fc8.i386

How reproducible: insert a cd or plug in a media device into the computer, then
right click it's icon in rhythmbox and click the "eject" button.

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results: semi-useless dialog comes up

Expected results: device is unmounted or ejected

Do you see any errors on the command-line? If not, could you attach the output
of "rhythmbox -d" when reproducing the problem.

Which "media" were you trying to eject?

"rhythmbox -d" output after inserting cd, and trying to eject
Comment 3 Roderic Morris 2007-10-15 20:07:00 EDT
On the command line, without the -d option, it only outputs "gnome-mount 0.7"
when I try to eject my cd. I'm attaching the output with -d after I insert the
cd and then try to eject it from rhythmbox.
The other media I've tried is an mp3 player (an ipod). Rhythmbox's eject doesn't
work for either, but the gnome desktop, umount, eject, etc, still work.
Comment 4 Bastien Nocera 2007-10-16 05:14:54 EDT

        rb_removable_media_manager_unmount_volume (mgr, volume);
        gnome_vfs_volume_eject (volume,
(GnomeVFSVolumeOpCallback)rb_removable_media_manager_eject_medium_cb, mgr);
        gnome_vfs_volume_unref (volume);

If the eject doesn't work, then gnome-vfs or gnome-mount are to blame
(especially if the error feedback is poor). I couldn't reproduce the problem myself.
