Multiple cd-rom icons from one cd-rom mount


Situation:
**********
When I insert a CD-ROM (or Floppy) and mount the device (cds automount) three (3) icons appear on my desktop. For instance if the volume label on the cd was "NEW", I would get the following:
NEW
NEW (2)
NEW (3)

When I eject (or even manually umount) the cd only one of the numbered icons will disappear. The remaining icons cannot be deleted. Only a logoff will clear the icons. To make it worse if I insert another cd (or the same cd) I will get three (3) additional icons on my desktop:
NEW (4)
NEW (5)
NEW (6)

And again when I eject only one (1) icon dissappears and the others cannot be deleted.

Has anyone else encountered this and/or have a solution? Any assistance is appreciated.

TIA.

I had the same problem with redhat 9 on my system. HP Pavilion 1.3ghz, 512sdram. I switched to Slackware 9.1, and have had no problem since. If you want to switch, but don't want to download, for $6 I'll sell you cd's that I burnt. contact me at njbrain@softhome.net, and we can work something out.

I have slackware, but thank you for the offer.

I have tried multiple flavors of Linux and always seem to end up back in red hat for one reason or another. I guess I was just really hoping that I would not have to completely rebuild my system to correct an error that I figured was related to X and how redhat mounts cd-roms in the gui.

If using slackware is my only option it will be a while before I convert. I actually use this system as my primary desktop at work. I even have Notes 6.0 working (in limited fashion) through wine. So I really do not want to start over at this time... but I might have to later...

Thanks for post. If you (or anyone) can think of any other possibilities they are appreciated.

There very likely is a solution, but I am a newbie so I don't know the answer. Switching to Slackware was my way of solving it. I helped that I was already mad at redhat.

Also, I didn't care for Slackware until 9.1 came out. Though it may be that I wasn't doing something right with the previous versions.

I also get extra icons cluttering up my desktop! Here's an additional observation (NOT a fix, unfortunately). If you look in your home directory, ~/.gnome-desktop, you'll see a file for each desktop icon (e.g., floppy, floppy (2), etc). Deleting these files will make the icons disappear from the desktop.

BTW, do you have anything out of the ordinary installed on your system. I have vmware, which adds quite a bit of additional complexity to the OS environment...
