K3b cannot find any optical drive on my system. I can put any dvd in it and it doesn't see it. It is there in /etc/fstab, but I can't mount it.

Thoughts?

Hi mark2.

You don't have to list the DVD device into your fstab, only then the auto-mounter is able to catch this device.

Additionally, if you're using KDE, you should check the right settings of the auto-mounter dialogue to your needs too.

Regards, Andy.

I should have been a bit more specific. It is not just K3b that cannot see the disk, but the whole system. It does not show up in Dolphin File manager. And whether I comment it out in /etc/fstab or not, it makes no difference. If I say:
Code:
mount /dev/cdrom

It comes back with:
Code:
mount: can't find cdrom in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab

And the same goes for dvd. I do have both in my USE flags, so it doesn't make any sense.

Regards,
~Mark

Did you check in the kernel configuration whether the cdrom and dvd filesystems are configured.

Please post your fstab too.

Mark2,

shortly found, this very helpful wiki with further information, to more of the needed preconditions, depending on your preferred userland:
http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Removable_media

Much success,

Andy.

@roland.graf
The cdrom and dvd filesystems are configured.
The fstab is:
Code:
no# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# noatime turns off atimes for increased performance (atimes normally aren't
# needed); notail increases performance of ReiserFS (at the expense of storage
# efficiency).  It's safe to drop the noatime options if you want and to
# switch between notail / tail freely.
#
# The root filesystem should have a pass number of either 0 or 1.
# All other filesystems should have a pass number of 0 or greater than 1.
#
# See the manpage fstab(5) for more information.
#

# <fs>         <mountpoint>   <type>      <opts>      <dump/pass>

# NOTE: If your BOOT partition is ReiserFS, add the notail option to opts.
/dev/sda1      /boot      ext3      noauto,noatime   1 2
/dev/sda3      /      ext4      noatime      0 1
/dev/sda2      none      swap      sw      0 0
/dev/cdrom      /mnt/cdrom   auto      noauto,user   0 0
/dev/sdb1      /windows/C   vfat      noauto,user   0 0
# /dev/fd0      /mnt/floppy   auto      noauto      0 0

I am not able to make much sense on that link and when I tried to do rc-update show, I cannot copy the output from my xterm window to paste here.

If you would follow every link on this site, you should notice that it makes sense for you. :wink:
Only two examples:

roland.graf already mentioned, that you should check your kernel configuration and I tried to point you more concrete to the relevant entries of my given subsites here:
http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/CDROM

More hints given here: http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Udisks

If you want to paste some output of your terminal, install wgetpaste
Code:
emerge wgetpaste

Then you could paste the output of rc-update e.g. with:
Code:
rc-update | wgetpaste
and tell us the given URL afterwards.

Much success, Andy.
