i had a similar issue until i removed my cd drive from fstab.
simply (i use the root terminal -- otherwise you will need to su)
- Code: Select all
or whichever editor you are comfortable with and remove any line under:
sw 0 0
sometimes your cd drive gets added to the fstab list cause that is the media you used to install with.
The line should something similar to
/dev/sr0/********* /media/cdrom0 ****
any line under the
sw 0 0
is probably safe to remove, just be sure not to remove your hard drive partitions or swap partition from this list.
This will also cause your removable media to be mounted under the label name instead of under the sudo folder.
fstab takes control of your drives and poof you loose control under a normal user. Remove the removable media from fstab and poof the problem is gone.
was thinking you were looking for a way not to have to force it to eject everytime you want to unmount a disk.
Most problems are permissions as linux is set to a very strict security permission standard, always check permissions first.
You may have to restart in order for these changes to take effect.
Hope this helps
What's this script do? unzip ; touch ; finger ; mount ; gasp ; yes ; umount ; sleep
