Subject: Unable to eject CD after booting with 'toram' option
Date: Thu, 15 Mar 2012 11:57:27 +0200
Package: live-config
Version: 3.0~a32-1

After booting a Debian live CD based on sid or wheezy and specifying the 
'toram' option, pressing the eject button on the CD-ROM drive does not 
eject the CD.  The CD can be ejected by running 'eject /dev/sr0' and the 
Debian live CD appears to be running from RAM correctly.

Booting a Debian live CD based on squeeze (live-config 2.0.15-1) works 
as expected; the CD is ejected when the eject button is pressed.

I created the ISO image by visiting 
http://live-build.debian.net/cgi-bin/live-build and choosing 
'iso-hybrid', 'sid' and 'minimal' standard options.

is the cd at at that point mounted (check with e.g. 'mount' on the console)?

if so, check what process is responsible (e.g. with 'fuser -m
$mountpoint' on the console).

I've just tested with a fresh Debian live CD based on sid (live-boot 
3.0~a25-1) on two different PCs; one with a Sony IDE DVD-ROM drive, the 
other with an LG S-ATA DVD-RW drive.

On both PCs, after booting and specifying the 'toram' option,  I am 
unable to eject the CD by pressing the eject button on the optical drive 
itself.  The CD can be ejected by running 'sudo eject /dev/sr0'.

Just to clarify, at the Debian live Boot menu I press Tab then type in 
'toram' so that the line reads as follows:
'> /live/vmlinuz initrd=/live/initrd.img boot=live config toram'

please build one with the latest live-build, containing latest live-boot
and live-config, and attach the package list.

I'm sorry, I have no idea how to do this.  I have been using the 
live-build web-frontend at 
http://live-build.debian.net/cgi-bin/live-build , which I see is still 
using live-build 3.0~a45-1.

You wrote that you were unable to reproduce the problem with current 
sid, were you able to reproduce it with a previous version?

hm, that's not much helping then, unfortunately.

I'm still experiencing this problem with the Wheezy candidate image.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Download and burn:
http://live.debian.net/cdimage/release/current-next/i386/iso-hybrid/debian-wheezy-live-b3-i386-standard.iso
2. Boot the CD and press Tab when the boot menu appears
3. Type in ' toram' (space toram without the quotes) and press Enter
4. Wait until booting has completed and the shell prompt appears
5. Press the Eject button on the CD/DVD ROM drive

The drive does not respond and in fact you may hear the disc still
spinning for a long time after booting completed.
Even pressing the reset button does not return the drive to a state
where the disc can be ejected, the machine needs to be power cycled.

I also tested on a fresh sid standard image generated today using the
live-build web-frontend with the same results.

Could this be a problem with any other component besides live-build?

try reproduce it with the standard image, rather than the gnome-desktop 
image which has a lot of software on it.
