    Little irritations since upgrade to KDE 3.5.1


    I just upgraded from KDE 3.4 to 3.5. via the yast source described here:

    http://linux.wordpress.com/2005/11/3...-for-suse-100/

    Everything went smooth. All is well. There's just a couple of little irritations.

    One, I can no longer simply select 'eject' on a DVD from within konqueror. I have to first umount it as root. This is a pain, and was not the case previously. Any thoughts on how to allow this again?

    Two, during a shutdown, if any apps cause one of those KDE crash windows to open, the shutdown pauses until I click on 'close' to close the crash window. This too was not the case previously. And again, any thoughts on how to fix this?

    Thanks.

    No, I didn't think that would work. I tried it just to be sure. It's umount that needs root, not the drive.

    This wasn't the case before though. Dern.

    It seems that the DVD thing is not actually problem. I posted to KDE-linux mailling list too and someone there pointed out that the eject button on the drive works now. I can definitely go with that. Interesting about the 'eject' context menu option though.

    Any one have any ideas about the crash windows during shutdown?
