Description Richard Kircher 2003-02-10 03:11:00 UTC
Red Hat 8.0 KDE auto mounts my CDROM drives with the noauto option included in my fstab file each time I boot into the KDE graphical interface. A bad side effect is that a Konqueror window opens for each of the mounted CDs (I have two) and creates a lot of window clutter that I have to clean-up by closing these unwanted Konqueror windows. I also have an icon set-up for each of the CDROMs on the KDE Desktop. If I right-click either icon => Properties (after booting into the KDE Session), I can see the unmount menu active meaning that it is mounted. I have also posted this problem at http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/sh...86&goto=newpost and that post shows my entire fstab and what I have tried to do with it. That avenue of pursuit has not provided a solution. If I remove the lines to mount the CDROMs from fstab and reboot, these lines are automatically added back in as follows: /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0 /dev/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom1 iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0 and then a Konqueror comes up for each CDROM, both of which are mounted. Steps to reproduce bug 1. reboot the computer (set to boot into KDE) Actual Results: KDE runs normally and a Konqueror opens for each of the two CDROMS. Both CDROMs are mounted as witnessed by the contents of the Konqueror window which shows the contents of the CDROMs. Expected Results: The two Konqueror windows should not open and the CDROMs should not be mounted. I should be able mount the CDROMs by right-clicking on the Desktop icons setup for each CDROM and clicking mount on the menu. Additional Information: This problem existed for the hda1 partition (C:\ of Win98SE) in my dual-boot installation until I added the noauto option to fstab. That caused the hda1 to not mount as desired.

Please see if the bug is present in Fedora Core 2

Sorry, I switched to SuSE and don't have Fedora Core 2 (or Fedora Core 1) installed anymore.
