Description mal 1999-10-27 13:13:46 UTC
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.

Jacques says:
>No I don't think so. Linuxconf does not know about the "owner" flag in
>/etc/fstab. This flag is a special case, like "user" I guess. Linuxconf
>treats this unknown flag as a normal mount flag and expect to see it in
>/etc/mtab, which is not the case.

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.
