Description Ulrich Drepper 2008-04-11 17:12:10 UTC
Description of problem:
At the end of the installation (I used the beta DVD ISO) the CD/DVD is not
ejected (i.e., the drive opened).  This is usually not /that/ much of an issue
but it is one when you install on crappy Apple hardware.  There is no button to
open the DVD driver, the special keyboard key doesn't work.  I.e., it's time to
find a paper clip and pry it open.

Failing to do this means that most likely the DVD is booted again and one
doesn't get the chance to run the eject command from the command line.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
whatever is on the beta DVD ISO

How reproducible:
didn't try but I see no reason it shouldn't

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install on Apple machine (G5 in my case)
Actual results:
DVD drive doesn't open at the end

Expected results:
it should open and possibly wait until told the CD is removed

Can you catch any error messages on tty3 along the lines of "error ejecting
cdrom..." right before the machine reboots?

Comment 2 Ulrich Drepper 2008-04-15 14:17:40 UTC
I cannot remember having seen any message.  Once there is a new ISO which has a
chance of fixing the graphical installation issue (other bug) I'm willing to try
it again.

Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.

Is this still an issue in the final release of F9?

Comment 5 Chris Lumens 2008-08-04 15:42:16 UTC
Ah I think I see what's going on here.  This should be fixed in the next build of anaconda (post-F10 Alpha, unfortunately) though I'll leave it in MODIFIED instead of closing it so we can verify.
