I have a strange problem with ejecting CDs from my CD drive.
eject and eject -t work flawlessly eject -T gives
ioctl: Input/output error
As non-root user:
eject -t closes the tray as expected eject gives
eject: unable to eject, last error: Inappropriate ioctl for device
eject -T gives the same result as for root
It doesn't matter whether I do or do not specify sr0 as the device to eject. The non-root user that I try to execute this command as is in the optical group.
I have the same problem on two different machines: my trusty old desktop and a Dell Latitude E6510. Also, all this did work before and stopped working some time not so long ago. So, given that it did work before and happens on two rather different machines, I suspect it to be a result of some package upgrade. Unfortunately, I don't know exactly when this started happening.
Does anybody else experience this type of problem? Does anybody have any pointers what may be wrong with my setup?
