KDE - audio CD fails to rip, I eject it, and can't read another CD until reboot
 
Hi,

I'm running a Gentoo system with KDE

My usual process for ripping a CD is to insert the CD. Konqueror opens up, I open up the Ogg Vorbis folder and drag and drop the contents to where I want it in my filesystem.

I have a CD that just refuses to rip, and when the rip fails, I'll wait a while, give up and cancel the file transfer. I'll then eject the CD, but the Audio CD icon on the desktop doesn't go away. Once I put in a new CD, I won't be able to read anything off of it until I reboot the machine. Is there some daemon that I can restart to get this fixed?

Grip was no help either.

I'm using an aopen IDE DVD/CD burner to read my CDs. AMD64 system.

It sounds like the CD drive is still mounted. Try running "umount /dev/cdrom0" as root where /dev/cdrom0 is the device for your cdrom. That should fix it. The reason it works on reboot is that the OS automatically unmounts all mounted partitions before shutdown.

Just stumbled on the answer today. As normal user, I did
Code:

killall kio_audiocd
Then ran
Code:

kio_uiserver
. Now I can read the cd again
