Description Stas Sergeev 2002-02-05 14:42:35 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.17 i686)

Description of problem:
eject -a off must disable only eject on unmount, but it also disables auto-close
on mount, which is annoying. It uses ioctl() CDROMEJECT_SW, but kernel messes
this ioctl with auto-close. As a workaround CDROM_[SEC|CLEAR]_OPTIONS can be
used with CDO_AUTO_EJECT as argument.
The attached patch does this and also fixes a warning about implicit exit().

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. eject
2. eject -a off
3. mount /mnt/cdrom

Actual Results:  mount: No medium found

Expected Results:  closed tray and mounted cd-rom

Additional info:

Well, this is a kernel bug probably...
