I just spent News Year night at a friend's place and he was havung problems
accessing his cdrom drive and dvd drive. I'm home and with the experience
straight in my mind here's what I had to do to get the dvd working for him in
kaffeine as a user
delete the old /dev /dvd
create a new one with ln -s /dev/hdc dev dvd
chmod 777 /dev/hdc re-dedit his /etc/fstab as such:
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom auto noauto,users,ro 0 0
which is the standard entry I always use in my workstations.
It works now.
