Re: CD-ROM eject
I've just executed the "sysctl -w dev.cdrom.lock=0" and now the ejecting work.
It seems that some kde application won't unlock the device even if it's
already unmounted. I've read the kernel documentation and it says that the
applications which uses the cdrom devices should do it with O_NONBLOCK
option. Maybe some kde apps don't do that?
