Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Somehow my system has stopped automounting DVD-R's burned with the udf extension.
DVD-Ram - ok
DVD+RW - ISO filesystem ok
CD Rom ok
DVD-R udf - Fails but disks are ok on other machines and with Suse 11.1 on my laptop. This is the same for all of my disks which have been burned on anything from Suse 10.1 up to to present date.
The disk contents are large mpeg files where k3b has enabled the udf extension automatically during burning.
K3b also now fails at the point where it would mount the disk after burning to verify data. Disks however mount and play ok on other machines.
When a disk is first inserted there is an empty folder created in \media having the same name as the disk title. Nothing else happens.
I can mount manually as root to a given mount point but cannot get the disk out again unless I reboot.
Back in January I messed around quite a bit trying to mount a USB external hard drive formatted with NTFS. I remember adding a symlimk for ntfs/ntfs3g mounting and added entries in fstab to mount the file systems where a normal user has permissions. I also remember having a lot of orphaned/locked device nodes after failed attempts which disappeared after rebooting and then having to clean out a similar number of mount points, These mount points were on a shared fat partition so I can't see how any system files were caught up in the cull. I have also been back through my root bash history and no clues.
I don't recall there being anything in fstab relating to mounting of optical drives beforehand, or making any other changes. I have tried searching for files that I may have changed during that period but haven't found any more clues as to what may have been changed. Also my laptop on suse 11.1 has nothing for the dvd drive in fstab and automounting works ok.
The system is my video recorder/media player has not been updated since the original installation so it is unlikely that an update has broken it.
Where do I need to look to find any settings relating to automounting/permissions of DVD's? or alternativley, which files do I need to post here.
