Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 475104
Grip will not eject a CD when ripping is finished
Last modified: 2009-12-18 02:11:27 EST
Since upgrading from Fedora 8 to Fedora 10, grip will no longer eject a CD when ripping is finished. There are no obvious complaints in dmesg.
This is 100% reproducible. Since upgrading, grip has never successfully ejected a CD. Grip also no longer plays a "beep" sound when ripping is complete. I've checked to make sure these settings did not get lost, and grip is still configured to play a beep and then eject the CD when ripping is finished.
The "eject" command-line successfully ejects a CD.
This probably cannot be fixed. What happens if you do "hal-disable-polling
--device /dev/sr0" (and replace /dev/sr0 with the path to your cdrom). If this helps then this is a duplicate of bug #196612 which I already closed with CANTFIX.
Indeed, if I do the hal-disable-polling command, grip is able to eject a CD. My question is, what has changed? In Fedora 8 and earlier, this worked perfectly on the same hardware. I understand the last comment of bug 196612, that it may not be possible to fix this in grip. But it's hard to believe that it's totally unfixable since it used to work and until I upgraded to Fedora 10, has always worked.

I do not know why the behaviour changed. It still works on my system without disabling the hal polling.

I already invested time in this bug to get it solved and I failed. I do not know how to continue. I already linked grip against libcdio to use the eject functionality from that library and it also failed sometimes. I am out of ideas, if you can find something to fix it, I would be happy to apply your patch.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '10'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 10 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-12-17. Fedora 10 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
