SuSE creepy CDRom activity. . .
My second CDRom drive keeps opening now that I have updated the kernel (via YOU) in SuSE 9.1. . .

It's really creepy. . . like spooky creepy. . .

However I don't think this PC has a mind of it's own. . . so what could be doing this?

Any thoughts?

Ok common. . . this is really freaky. . . I can't get the CD rom drive to stay closed. It pops open every few min or so.

It is the second CD rom drive this system has. . . the first is a DVD rom drive with the SuSE 9.1 Pro DVD in it. . . and the drive that can stay shut is a CDRW. . .

If I put a CD in, it opens. . .
If I leave the drive empty, it opens. . .
It only stays closed if I mount the drive. . . or am burning a CD.

Ok, Fine!

I'll just have to search SuSE myself. . .

I'm having that same problem now. Did you ever figure it out?

slackMeUp 10-30-2004 03:34 PM

hehe yah, I did.

I installed Gentoo.

Then went back to Slack a month later.

Now I'm thinking of giving SuSE Pro 9.2 a shot when it comes out.

And my windows partition is going to be OpenBSD when 3.6 is released on FTP (nov. 1st) (because I don't use windows for work anymore)

Sigh... I will never settle on a distro.. just so much choice.

I think it is a problem with submount... the program that SuSE uses to automount CDs/Floppies/media.

I'm basically new to linux. I installed mandrake once a long time ago to run a half life server. It worked really good except my bandwidth was to lame for any good sized games.

A couple weeks ago I installed Slackware but decided to switch because the buttons Num Lock, Scroll Lock, and Caps Lock all locked up the system.

Then I try SUSE and it does this cdrom thing.

Sigh, one day everything will work right and I won't know what to do.

Thank you for your reply. I think I'll see if 9.2 is a bit less possesed.
