Description udo 2009-06-24 17:02:36 UTC
Description of problem:
`eject cdrom` opens and immediately closes cdrom tray

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do upgrade to F11
2. boot into F11
3. `eject cdrom`
Actual results:
Tray opens, tray closes immediately

Expected results:
Tray opens

Additional info:
$ eject -v cdrom
eject: device name is `cdrom'
eject: expanded name is `/dev/cdrom'
eject: `/dev/cdrom' is a link to `/dev/hda'
eject: `/dev/hda' is not mounted
eject: `/dev/hda' is not a mount point
eject: checking if device "/dev/hda" has a removable or hotpluggable flag
eject: `/dev/hda' is a multipartition device
eject: trying to eject `/dev/hda' using CD-ROM eject command
    (here is a pause of a few seconds!!!!)
eject: CD-ROM eject command succeeded

Because of this behaviour teh CD-ROM/writer is 99.8% unusable. This is a grave situation.

Comment 1 udo 2009-06-27 14:52:20 UTC
Same issue on an other F10 -> F11 PC with a Plextor DVD-writer instead of CD-rom.

How to debug?

Comment 2 udo 2009-06-27 14:53:21 UTC
And why is a cd-rom a multi-partition device?
Most of my discs have one session only.

Comment 3 udo 2009-06-28 17:15:21 UTC
After updating on the DVD-writer machine the eject command now works as expected on that machine. Is gvfs involved here?

On the CD-machine with the same gvfs etc the behaviour is unchanged: eject closes the tray immediately after opening.

Comment 4 Zdenek Prikryl 2009-06-29 08:43:24 UTC
The bug isn't in eject. It seems that this is a duplicate of the bug 453095.

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 453095 ***
