Description Jacob Masaki 2009-06-14 20:26:54 EDT
Description of problem:

There is an icon for a blank CD on my desktop when my cdrom drive is empty.  I guessed this might be a udev problem, but I actually have no idea.  

Palimpsest says "Unregocnized" for one of the lines relating to my drive.  And lists it as "SONY CD-ROM CD CDU5212".  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Fedora 11

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ...Happen to have my CD drive.
2. Install Fedora 11
Actual results:
When the drive is empty, OS thinks there is a blank CD in the drive.  

Expected results:
When the drive is empty, no icon should be on my desktop.  

Additional info:
This is a regression from Fedora 10, and a very strange bug, I've never seen anything like this before.
Comment 1 Jacob Masaki 2009-06-14 20:28:09 EDT
Oh, I forgot to mention, when I put an actual disc in the drive it works fine, and it's a CD ROM drive, so I have no idea if this bug would interfere with burning.  But I can read discs okay.

I saw it in Gnome, when running F11 in VirtualBox (before updating it to Rawhide, so I don't know if it's still there).

reassigning to nautilus
Comment 5 Tomáš Bžatek 2009-07-23 12:15:04 EDT
Is the icon visible in computer:/// ?
Can you please attach output of `devkit-disks --dump`?
And please post versions of gvfs, gnome-disk-utility and
DeviceKit-disks packages.

Device icons should be visible on desktop only when they're mounted, perhaps something is fooling dk-disks.

Thank you for the dump. Looks like DeviceKit-disks really detects media in drive, perhaps this is too old CD-ROM drive or something's wrong in kernel.
Comment 9 Harald Hoyer 2009-07-24 05:57:31 EDT
does updating to udev-141-4 fix the issue?
Comment 10 Christof Damian 2009-07-24 06:15:40 EDT
It is a rather old drive. I use it because it is more reliable in ripping CDs than DVD drives.

It was working in Fedora 10.

I did a full update yesterday and it was still broken today. I'll check later whether this included udev-141-4

I can confirm that udev-141-4.fc11.x86_64 still has the problem.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11.  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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '11'.

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 11'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 11 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: 
Comment 13 Bug Zapper 2010-06-28 09:01:19 EDT
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 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.
