Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 6421
linuxconf wants to remount the CD
Last modified: 2016-12-09 11:38:24 EST
on a fresh installed RedHat 6.1
when RedHat installation CD 1
is in the CDROM
linuxconf wants to remount /mnt/cdrom
each time I start linuxconf.
Even after linuxconf remounted the CD
next time linuxconf started it wants to remount
the CD again.
It is verry annoying.
While RedHat CD 1 is in CD ROM
linuxconf wants to remount the CD.
Even answering "YES" on linuxconf
question about remounting the CD does not help.
Jacques, this may be a bad interaction with magicdev.

Ah. The owner flag is just like "user" except that only the owner of
the device is allowed to mount the filesystem. pam_console changes
the ownership of several devices, including /dev/cdrom and /dev/fd?*,
when users log in at the local console, and then via the "owner" flag
they are allowed to mount filesystems on floppies and cdroms.
Jacques, was this fixed in the big patch you sent?
1.16r10-2 fixes this bug
