can't eject cd

hi. I have a strange problem. I have a soft touch button to open cd tray but when I press it the system freezes. it doesn't happen with ubuntu. I wonder if I have to configure something or add some software...

Re: can't eject cd

If you just need to get a disk out of the drive open a terminal and type eject. If that doesn't work then switch to root and try the command. That should do it. As far as the system freezing, no clue.

Re: can't eject cd

Go to https://bugzilla.redhat.com and create an account, then file the bug. Might want to search to see if there are similar bugs already or maybe even a solution to your problem.

Might be worth your time to learn a little about keyboard mapping and then see if you can figure out exactly what that key is trying to do when pressed.
