I believe this may have been fixed in final release.
Comment 2 Dams 2002-10-01 14:18:44 EDT
Dont. This aint fixed in the final release.
Comment 3 Alexander Larsson 2002-10-02 04:00:48 EDT
dnade: Do you have several cdroms? In particular, when the icon appears on the
desktop, does it have a '#' in the name? There was a bug with that which made it
fail to eject the cd I think.
Comment 4 Dams 2002-10-02 04:09:43 EDT
Yes I have. I got a classical IDE Dvd-rom drive and an scsi-emulated firewire
dvd+rw burner. Yes again, the '(#)' icon appears in some case but sometimes the
name of the icon is not a '(#)' but something like "Red Hat Linux i386 ..." when
i insert the psyche cdrom for example and then it doesn't work either.
I will try to reproduce the bug with a one-cdrom-deviced psyche box, i keep you
Comment 5 Alexander Larsson 2002-10-02 04:20:30 EDT
Any character in the name that would need to be escaped in a URI would confuse
it. I guess this includes spaces...
Comment 6 Dams 2002-10-03 03:55:19 EDT
Just for information, ejecting a cd with nautilus on a box with only one cdrom
device work.
Comment 7 Alexander Larsson 2002-10-08 09:01:24 EDT
Note: This is fixed in upstream CVS.
Comment 8 Dams 2002-10-08 09:04:22 EDT
Do you think there will be an official erratum for nautilus including this ?
Comment 9 Eric Bourque 2002-11-25 16:14:55 EST
I'm experiencing the same problem, and also have two cd-rom drives: one external
scsi, and one internal. I've found that choosing eject doesn't work for any
cdroms, regardless of the volume name. I've also never seen the hash marks
referred to above. Unmounting manually always works.
Comment 10 Alexander Larsson 2003-01-16 11:16:30 EST
This has been fixed in 2.1.x (in rawhide now). Note that this is specifically
the '#' in the volume name bug. There are other bugs in bugzilla about problems
unmounting cds.
