Package: general
Severity: important


as a normal user, I can mount my cdrom, but I cannot eject it:

# eject /cdrom
eject: unable to open `/dev/cdrom'

As root, I can eject the CDROM all right.

Furthermore, I just tracked the problem down: it is due to /dev/hdc's
group ownership by 'disk'. Changing that to 'cdrom' seems to remedy
the situation.

Other people also had the same problem, please take a look at


So, the question is: why is /dev/hdc owned by 'disk' in Sarge? Does it
have to be so for some reason? If not, I'd suggest to change that to
'cdrom' as it seems to help with ejecting...

Closing as this has been fixed in d-i for some time. Of course that
doesn't deal with upgrade issues, users assing CD drives, swapping disks
around, etc. udev is probably the only way to really deal with that.
