Searching this board for 'normal user eject' or even 'eject' by itself yielded very little information so I figured I'd just post. If this has been asked and answered before I am sorry.
My system has a DVD-ROM and a CD-Writer in it. I have these lines in /etc/fstab:
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 user,noauto,ro 0 0
/dev/hdd /mnt/writer iso9660 user,noauto,ro 0 0
Normal users can mount & umount these drives just fine, but they cannot use the eject command:
eject: unable to open `/dev/hdb'
root can succesfully use the eject command for both drives. /usr/bin/eject is chmod 755. Why is the eject command not working for normal users and how can I enable it?
