  1. Disabling dynamic changes to fstab

    I am running Fedora 3 and have a DVD burner. The original entry in
    fstab for the burner was read only and I changed this, removing the
    read only in fstab. However, on rebooting, the changes were removed.
    Obviously there is some other program that dynamically updates fstab on
    boot up. How would I prevent this program from destroying my changes?

    TIA

    fstab sets the mount points and the way volumes are mounted... in the case
    of your DVD burner, you only use your mount point to read cds or dvds with
    computer files... so read only is correct to a DVD, even a burner...
    you don't mount: Cd-Audio, DVD-Movie, etc... you only mount discs that have
    computer files on them.
    To burn a DVD you don't use the mount point, your burning software (cdrecord
    or k3b, etc) will deal with your burner directly through is
    device... /dev/dvd ou something else...

    let the mount point of DVD in your fstab with the read only on... that's the
    correct way.
