Re: trouble with 'eject' of cdrom, writing cdrom

Hello,

I have FC3 installed and notice that, although FC3 mounts a cdrom when
inserted into my cdrom reader/writer, it complains when I try to eject
it :
 eject: unable to open `/dev/hdc'

 [jfl ws8 ~]$ ls -l /dev/hdc
 brw-rw----  1 root disk 22, 0 Dec  1 19:28 /dev/hdc

So I have changed the permissions :
 [jfl ws8 ~]$ ls -l /dev/hdc
 brw-rw-rw-  1 root disk 22, 0 Dec  1 19:28 /dev/hdc
and now things seem to work.

Yet I have read that the /dev directory is now dynamically populated,
somehow.
Under what conditions is the /dev directory dynamically populated? Will I have to reset permissions in the future?


Thanks for any light you might shed on this phenomenon.


Did you update udev the newest version? If yes, then you have been bitten by a bug: Please help me on: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=141897
