Failed to lock hardware DVD eject button

Postby kixunil on Thu Oct 11, 2012 11:17 am

Hello

I've upgraded from Ubuntu 10.10 to LM Maya (With Mate Desktop). On Ubuntu 10.10 I was able to lock DVD hardware button using eject -i 1 (and unlock with eject -i 0), so my drive doesn't accidentally open. After upgrade, this stopped work. I've tried eject -i 1 /dev/sr0, echo 1 > /proc/sys/dev/cdrom/lock and little C program which uses ioctl. Everything failed - I'm still able to open door using HW button.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Thats an interesting problem.

I can confirm that despite the man pages eject -i on does not prevent the drive from being opened (regardless of the fact that the ouput says "CD-Drive may NOT be ejected with device button")

I dont have any specific suggestions though

[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.
