Thumbs up Fixed CD ROM on my Fedora C1

Ok, I posted a while back that my CDrom would not eject after I unmounted it in FC1. I used a kill command to get it done for a while but knew that this was not the answer, just a work around.

What I ended up doing yesterday was going in to fstab and delete the references to "kudzu" in the fstab lines for both CDROM's. They have not locked since. I have tried to get them to lock and they won't.

Anyway, thought that may help someone else.

here is my fstab line if you just want to copy and paste. (I also changed owner to user)

OLD LINE: dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0

dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,user,ro 0 0

fstab line for cdrom

Also as a side note if anyone is having to wait forever when loading their blank CD's into their burner editing fstab to Frank's is a major time saver!

same problems

I am also having a lot of problems with ejecting my DVDs. My CD-RECORDER works OK - no problems with opening the drive. But my DVD drive is hell! I sometimes have to reboot the computer to be able to change DVD!

I use SuSE 9.0 so my fstab looks like this:

/dev/hda2 / reiserfs defaults 1 1
/dev/hda1 swap swap pri=42 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
usbdevfs /proc/bus/usb usbdevfs noauto 0 0
/dev/cdrom /media/cdrom auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy auto noauto,user,sync 0 0
/dev/dvd /media/dvd auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
/dev/cdrecorder /media/cdrecorder auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
/dev/sda1 /media/sda1 auto sync,noauto,user,exec 0 0 #HOTPLUG 4t_9.ISLU11rHX6B

What can I change to solve the problem?

Seems to be a known bug:
#> service xinetd restart

This workaround has been great for me--hopefully it'll be fixed FC2. The bugzilla is a good read, too.
