Re: What I hope is not in FC3

Eject doesn't work on 2.6?  On my FC2 box it works fine.

nb. what's the problem with "md5sum /dev/cdrom", since "dd if=/dev/cdrom 
bs=2048 count=[number of sectors] | md5sum" works.  So obviously the 
problem is that tries to read past the end of the CD, isn't this 
information included on the CD, can't this information be used to limit 
the size of the device?  Or is there something I'm not getting that causes 
end of device I/O errors to be required.

(Of course DVD's have a 32KB not 2KB sector size which would screw up 
md5sum's even if it stopped reading at the end of the device cause ISO 
images are 2KB multiples, maybe cdrecord should be fixed to auto-pad large 
images (>1GB) to a multiple of 32KB?)

Cheers,
MaZe.
