Description of problem:
When running redhat-config-packages, and when it asks for a CD to install from,
magicdev will pop up and ask if I want the CD to be mounted. This is after
redhat-config-packages is already using the CD to copy rpms from.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run redhat-config-packages
2. select new packages to install
3. insert CD when asked.
Actual Results: redhat-config-packages will start using the CD, and a couple
seconds later, magicdev will ask if I want it to be mounted.
Expected Results: magicdev should be disabled when redhat-config-packages asks
for the CD.
I only saw this in Gnome. I currently use fluxbox instead of Gnome, and
magicdev doesn't pop up any windows into Fluxbox.
This is working properly for me here -- I stick in the CD, it gets mounted by
magicdev, but no window pops up and redhat-config-packages uses it as though it
mounted the CD itself.
What options do you have set in the CD properties dialog?
Hrm... oddly enough I'm unable to duplicate this again here. I never touched
the CD settings, they were default. I can't get it to ask me if I want to mount
the CD anymore, it just automagically mounts them. How bizarre. Since neither
you nor I can duplicate this, I suppose NOTABUG is appropriate.
/me wanders off to kick the gremlins out of his box....
