Feature changed by: Christopher Yeleighton (yecril71pl)
Feature #309397, revision 3
Title: add primary user to floppy and cdrom

openSUSE-11.3: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Important

Requested by: Christopher Yeleighton (yecril71pl)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
The primary user created by the installer should belong to groups
floppy and cdrom .

Use Case:
* The user has created a document and she wants to transfer it to a
floppy disk.
* The user has two CD-ROM drives and she wants to access the other one.


Business case (Partner benefit):
openSUSE.org: it is hardly imaginable one would forbid oneself writing
floppy disks.

Discussion:
#1: Jan Engelhardt (jengelh) (2010-05-06 22:45:57)
Adding to groups is an anachronism. ConsoleKit should have added
appropriate ACLs on login on /dev/sr0 and such, like it does on
/dev/snd/*.

+ #2: Christopher Yeleighton (yecril71pl) (2010-08-03 21:20:57) (reply to
+ #1)
+ Could you elaborate?  The groups solution works for me.  Why is it an
+ anachronism?
