Description Dean Kolosiek 2008-02-01 05:05:11 EST
Description of problem:

At the QEMU monitor prompt the 'eject cdrom' and 'eject -f cdrom' commands don't
work. After using the bash eject command and inserting another CD, and issuing
QEMU 'change cdrom /dev/cdrom' command the CD is not readable. In this case I'm
trying to install Windows 2000 Upgrade which requires verifying my Windows NT CD.

Started QEMU using

    qemu -hda win2000.img -boot d -cdrom /dev/cdrom -m 256 -localtime

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
