Basic Installation
These are generic installation instructions.
The `configure' shell script attempts to guess correct values for
various system-dependent variables used during compilation. It uses
those values to create a `Makefile' in each directory of the package.
It may also create one or more `.h' files containing system-dependent
definitions. Finally, it creates a shell script `config.status' that
you can run in the future to recreate the current configuration, a file
`config.cache' that saves the results of its tests to speed up
reconfiguring, and a file `config.log' containing compiler output
(useful mainly for debugging `configure').
If you need to do unusual things to compile the package, please try
to figure out how `configure' could check whether to do them, and mail
diffs or instructions to the address given in the `README' so they can
be considered for the next release. If at some point `config.cache'
contains results you don't want to keep, you may remove or edit it.
The file `' is used to create `configure' by a program
called `autoconf'. You only need `' if you want to change
it or regenerate `configure' using a newer version of `autoconf'.
The simplest way to compile this package is:
1. `cd' to the directory containing the package's source code and type
`./configure' to configure the package for your system. If you're
using `csh' on an old version of System V, you might need to type
`sh ./configure' instead to prevent `csh' from trying to execute
`configure' itself.
Running `configure' takes a while. While running, it prints some
messages telling which features it is checking for.
2. Type `make' to compile the package.
3. Optionally, type `make check' to run any self-tests that come with
the package.
4. Type `make install' to install the programs and any data files and
5. You can remove the program binaries and object files from the
source code directory by typing `make clean'. To also remove the
files that `configure' created (so you can compile the package for
a different kind of computer), type `make distclean'. There is
also a `make maintainer-clean' target, but that is intended mainly
for the package's developers. If you use it, you may have to get
all sorts of other programs in order to regenerate files that came
with the distribution.
Compilers and Options
Some systems require unusual options for compilation or linking that
the `configure' script does not know about. You can give `configure'
initial values for variables by setting them in the environment. Using
a Bourne-compatible shell, you can do that on the command line like
CC=c89 CFLAGS=-O2 LIBS=-lposix ./configure
Or on systems that have the `env' program, you can do it like this:
env CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/local/include LDFLAGS=-s ./configure
Compiling For Multiple Architectures
You can compile the package for more than one kind of computer at the
same time, by placing the object files for each architecture in their
own directory. To do this, you must use a version of `make' that
supports the `VPATH' variable, such as GNU `make'. `cd' to the
directory where you want the object files and executables to go and run
the `configure' script. `configure' automatically checks for the
source code in the directory that `configure' is in and in `..'.
If you have to use a `make' that does not supports the `VPATH'
variable, you have to compile the package for one architecture at a time
in the source code directory. After you have installed the package for
one architecture, use `make distclean' before reconfiguring for another
Installation Names
By default, `make install' will install the package's files in
`/usr/local/kde/bin', `/usr/local/kde/lib', etc. You can specify an
installation prefix other than `/usr/local/kde' by giving `configure'
the option `--prefix=PATH'.
You can specify separate installation prefixes for
architecture-specific files and architecture-independent files. If you
give `configure' the option `--exec-prefix=PATH', the package will use
PATH as the prefix for installing programs and libraries.
Documentation and other data files will still use the regular prefix.
If the package supports it, you can cause programs to be installed
with an extra prefix or suffix on their names by giving `configure' the
option `--program-prefix=PREFIX' or `--program-suffix=SUFFIX'.
Optional Features
Some packages pay attention to `--enable-FEATURE' options to
`configure', where FEATURE indicates an optional part of the package.
They may also pay attention to `--with-PACKAGE' options, where PACKAGE
is something like `gnu-as' or `x' (for the X Window System). The
`README' should mention any `--enable-' and `--with-' options that the
package recognizes.
For packages that use the X Window System, `configure' can usually
find the X include and library files automatically, but if it doesn't,
you can use the `configure' options `--x-includes=DIR' and
`--x-libraries=DIR' to specify their locations.
Specifying the System Type
There may be some features `configure' can not figure out
automatically, but needs to determine by the type of host the package
will run on. Usually `configure' can figure that out, but if it prints
a message saying it can not guess the host type, give it the
`--host=TYPE' option. TYPE can either be a short name for the system
type, such as `sun4', or a canonical name with three fields:
See the file `config.sub' for the possible values of each field. If
`config.sub' isn't included in this package, then this package doesn't
need to know the host type.
If you are building compiler tools for cross-compiling, you can also
use the `--target=TYPE' option to select the type of system they will
produce code for and the `--build=TYPE' option to select the type of
system on which you are compiling the package.
Sharing Defaults
If you want to set default values for `configure' scripts to share,
you can create a site shell script called `' that gives
default values for variables like `CC', `cache_file', and `prefix'.
`configure' looks for `PREFIX/share/' if it exists, then
`PREFIX/etc/' if it exists. Or, you can set the
`CONFIG_SITE' environment variable to the location of the site script.
A warning: not all `configure' scripts look for a site script.
Operation Controls
`configure' recognizes the following options to control how it
Use and save the results of the tests in FILE instead of
`./config.cache'. Set FILE to `/dev/null' to disable caching, for
debugging `configure'.
Print a summary of the options to `configure', and exit.
Do not print messages saying which checks are being made.
Look for the package's source code in directory DIR. Usually
`configure' can determine that directory automatically.
Print the version of Autoconf used to generate the `configure'
script, and exit.
`configure' also accepts some other, not widely useful, options.

Version 2.1.5 fixes a bug in the -T option and adds some new translations
Version 2.1.4 incorporates Debian patches from Frank Lichtenheld.
Version 2.1.3 incorporates several Gentoo patches from Mike Frysinger.
Version 2.1.2 incorporates several Red Hat patches from Than Ngo.
Version 2.1.1 incorporates Debian patch for the deprecated SCSO ioctl error.
Version 2.1.0 incorporates Debian patches including a new -m option.
Version 2.0.11 adds localized strings with support for Japanese.
Version 2.0.10 adds localized strings with support for Taiwanese and French.
Version 2.0.9 adds the --proc/-p option.
Version 2.0.8 adds the --cdspeed/-x option.
Version 2.0.6 now uses GNU automake/autoconf.
The methods used to eject are mostly Linux specific. A version for
SunOS or Solaris could likely be done by stripping out much of the
It should compile as is on all Linux platforms. Support for long
option names requires the GNU getopt_long functions. It also needs
the POSIX regex functions, which I would think are included in most
Linux distributions.
Possible Problems
Problem: Unable to find <linux/version.h> when compiling.
You need the kernel source installed (at least the include files from
the kernel source).
Problem: Unable to find an include file when compiling
(e.g. <regex.h>).
You are either running a very old kernel, and/or a Linux distribution
which either installs some files in a non-standard location or is
missing some files. I have only tested eject under Red Hat Linux
for Intel.
Problem: Option -c produces "eject: IDE/ATAPI CD-ROM changer not
supported by this kernel".
You are running a very old kernel. If you want multi-disc changer
support upgrade to the 2.0 kernel or later.
Problem: Option -t produces "eject: CD-ROM tray close command not
supported by this kernel".
You are running a very old kernel. If you want multi-disc changer
support upgrade to the 2.0 kernel or later.
Problem: You get an error such as "eject: unable to find or open
device for: `foo'"
1. You did not specify a valid device or file, even after checking
/dev and /mnt.
2. The device is not readable by you. Change the permissions or
install eject setuid root.
3. Some devices (e.g. SCSI) can only be ejected by root. Run as root
or install eject setuid root.
Problem: eject doesn't work and the above solutions are no help.
Send me a description of the problem including the symptoms, what
Linux kernel and distribution you are running, the version of eject,
and the output of eject when the problem occurs, with the -v option.
What I find is a convenient setup for accessing removable devices is
to use the auto-mounter built in to the kernel to automatically mount
the devices whenever the mount point is referenced. I have this set up
for /mnt/cdrom (IDE CD-ROM), /mnt/zip (IDE ZIP drive), /mnt/floppy
(VFAT-formatted floppy), and /mnt/dos (Windows 95 partition on hard
drive). The automounter also automatically unmounts the devices when
they are idle for a period of time. I set up /etc/fstab so that
non-root users can also unmount the devices at any time. I do not
need to install eject setuid root.
See the man pages autofs(8), automount(8), mount(8)
Eject allows removable media (typically a CD-ROM, floppy disk, tape
drive, or JAZ or ZIP disk) to be ejected under software control. The
command can also control some multi-disc CD-ROM changers, the
auto-eject feature supported by some devices, and close the disc tray
of some CD-ROM drives.
See the file INSTALL for instructions on how to compile and install
the program.
The following devices and configurations are known to work with eject:
- 1GB and 2GB SCSI IOMEGA JAZ drives
- Apple PowerMac floppy drive
- HP1534 SCSI DAT tape drive
- IDE/ATAPI LS120 120MB floppy drive
- Parallel port IOMEGA 100MB ZIP drive
- SCSI CD-R drive
- SCSI MO Drive
- Sun SPARC floppy drive
- Fujitsu M2512A magneto-optical disk drive (SCSI)
- 2.0.36 (and earlier 2.0.x)
- 2.1.132 (and earlier 2.1.x)
- 2.2.16 (and earlier 2.2.x)
- 2.4.4 (and earlier 2.4.x)
- 2.6.11 (and earlier 2.6.x)
- with both the IDE, SCSI, and IDE SCSI emulation kernel drivers
- Intel (Red Hat)
- PowerPC
- DEC Alpha
It is loosely based on the SunOS eject command.
If you have any problems or suggestions, drop me a line. I'm
particularly interested in hearing if it does or doesn't work with
media other than CD-ROM or when running Linux on non-Intel machines.
Version 2.0 is mostly a rewrite of version 1.5 to clean up the source
and add a number of new features (and take out some useless ones).
Many thanks to the beta testers for version 2.0:
