Upgrade to Ubuntu 9.04 3

Upgrade my system from ubuntu 8.10 to 9.04 via the software update function. It all seemed to work fine, but took about hour plus to complete which is more down to my system (self build machine, done about 5 years or more ago) than ubuntu I would say.

My first impressions is that it appears just like 8.10 apart from the notifications which are a nice touch, but the really work as always is under the bonnet with new updates to gnome 2.26, the Linux kernel 2.6.28, X.org server 1.6, Ext4 filesystem support and more. It runs well on my lame system and seems a lot smoother than 8.10, so top marks so far.

Now to the problem that has occurred since the update.

  • Unable to read my creative zen mp3 player – Gnomad freezes
  • Cannot mount IPOD player – Do not permissions to read
  • Reading DVD from drive – Read only permissions, do not have permissions to read

I have checked all the permissions for the user, tried using mount -t iso9660 -r /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom but no joy. So in short I have some kind of permissions issue here, I’ll need to do some more digging around to resolve the problem.

Any ideas on how to fix this, then please leave a comment.

    ZEN-first right click and unmount drive and then gnomad 2 works!

    It is one, and of as far as I know, there is no official solution, nor did anybody from Canonical talk about it.
    However, it is already reported on Launchpad ( https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+question/69910 ), so maybe the developers have spotted it…
