Problem CD/DVD open and close immediately

New features which should be implemented in Porteus; suggestions are welcome. All questions or problems with testing releases (alpha, beta, or rc) should go in their relevant thread here, rather than the Bug Reports section.

Problem CD/DVD open and close immediately

Post#1 by Slaxmax » 09 Jun 2014, 22:56

If there is a disk mounted in the DVD/CD drive and I push the drive button, the tray opens and closes immediately.
I fixed with the following command:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/home/guest# sysctl -w dev.cdrom.autoclose=0
put this command in rc.local to run at the next boot.

very good..
I had the same "out/in" problem here, and meanwhile I got good reflexes.
Thanks a lot for this solution.
