I've installed Mandriva 2009.1 and I have weird problems mounting CDs and DVDs. This is the part for them under /etc/fstab: /dev/sr1 /media/dvd auto umask=0,users,iocharset=utf8,noauto,ro,exec 0 0 /dev/sr0 /media/cdrom auto ...

/dev/sr1 /media/dvd auto umask=0,users,iocharset=utf8,noauto,ro,exec 0 0
/dev/sr0 /media/cdrom auto umask=0,users,iocharset=utf8,noauto,ro,exec 0 0
It sometimes does mount, and opens the content, but very often it can't open the media, just hangs with no reactions. Similar experiences?
And another two things:
By default in fstab my dvd-rom is indicated as /dev/cdrom, but when I issue the mount comand there is /dev/sr1. Is this a bug?
I can't logout , and when I try to do that, the system halts. Kernel?, KDE4?

Might be that your dvd is damaged.

I've done the thing with switching to Gnome desktop. I had always a feeling of being unpredictable with KDE4. I don't like the "maybe-baby" possibilities with my PC. The Gnome works like charm.

I'm sorry, I didnot get you. Do you mean to say that the whole thing was due to KDE4 and the problem got solved with you changing to Gnome?

The root of my problem lies inside the KDE4's media manager. It is not ready enough. You can use it on Windows way, with a plasma applet popping up, and showing the recently mounted device, with some options to choose. I had the choice to remove this applet and to try to open the device with a device's shortcut on my desktop, but it refused to mount it. Sometimes even Dolphin didn't want to open the just mounted device. I could not determine the algorhytm for its working. I don't like to select each time I mount something. I use to tell the system what to do, and I appreciate when a system doesn't bothers me like KDE4 do. If I could rewrite the applet's config file (if I knew its name, because I didn't find it) I would try again.
And yes, my troubles went away with switching to Gnome.
