I have a computer, with multiple operating systems.
On one of them (OpenSuse 10.3 + KDE 3.5), I want to block the CD-ROM access to some or all the users.
No problem if even root is not allowed.
The other OS on the computer must see the CD-ROM.
I have root access.
The other users do not have it.
When I enter a CD/DVD the KDE automounts it, so the CD becomes visible.
I searched the internet, and I found some threads, but no one could solve my problem.
Is there a way to get the users out of the cdrom group?
I looked into it, and it seems that the cdrom group is empty.
Or there is any command to put in a startup script.
To stop the automounting of cdroms.
autofs is off, yet no results:
# /sbin/chkconfig --list | grep autofs
To stop the KDE automounting, for all users.
As in: KDE Control Center > KDE Components > Service Manager > Startup Services box
But for all the users, without the possibility to re-activate it.
Modifications in udev configuration files:
I know it sounds paranoic, but the environment I have to install this security feature is very strict.
Thank you very much.
