From Bugzilla Helper:

Description of problem:
Whenever I install an RPM from a CD, after the RPM finishes installing, the CD unmounts.  I try to mount it back, but I get an error message:  mount: /mnt/cdrom is not in /etc/fstab. There is not even an appropriate device in /dev for the CD-ROM drive.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.9 - rpm-4.3.2

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.In FC3, install an RPM from a CD/DVD
2.Go to a terminal and type mount /mnt/cdrom
3.Have Fun!!!!!

Actual Results:  Error message - /mnt/cdrom is not in /etc/fstab

Expected Results:  The CD should have mounted properly

This has nothing whatsoever to do with rpm. Make sure that your cdrom is not being automounted.
