kde and autofs don't play well together
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
RH ships with autofs shipped configured for automatic mounting of CD-ROMs
(and that should not change -- autofs is the only uniform solution that
works the same no matter what console or windowed environment is being
However, KDE ignores the autofs mounts and mounts inserted CDs as well, so
CDs end up being mounted twice, once on /misc/cd by autofs and once on
/mnt/cdrom by KDE.
Still true with a fresh install of RC1
Cannot be solved easily.. race problem... or autorun has to know about autofs
handling the cdrom..
Still true with RC2
solution 1: do not start autorun, remove Autorun from Autostart folder
solution 2: remove cdrom from /etc/fstab
Problem cannot be solved without parsing autofs config files and check for
autofs daemon started.
