    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...

    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.

    thanks. it worked. no clue on why the button freezes the system either... I have a packard bell laptop...maybe it's keyboard configuration

    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.
