Description Jesse Keating 2002-10-01 01:56:10 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

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):

How reproducible:

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.

Additional info:

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?
Comment 2 Jesse Keating 2002-10-02 02:57:15 EDT
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....
