Description Jordan 2004-12-13 23:04:18 EST
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0 Description of problem: After a fresh boot, inserted USB disk drives will only create new icons on the desktop for approximately 15 minutes. The icon will stay on the desktop for as long as the disk is plugged in, but if it is unmounted and re-inserted more than about 15 minutes after boot the disk will be mounted but no icon will show up on the desktop or in Nautilus. The only way to unmount the drive at this point is to use the command line. During the 15 minute window my two USB disk drives can be inserted/mounted and unmounted with the icons menu as many times as you want. If no USB disk drives are inserted in the first 15 min. drives will still not show up on the desktop or in Nautilus after the window. In summary, desktop icons show up for inserted USB drives as expected for about 15 minutes after boot up. After time has past, newly inserted drives will not have an associated icon, but will be mounted to a file in /media. I am using 15 minutes as an estimate, I do not know exactly when the failure occurs. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1.1.0-5 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start computer. 2. Plugin a USB disk drive. 3. Watch desktop icon appear. 4. Unmount disk with icon menu. 5. Wait about 15 minutes. 6. Plugin a USB disk drive. 7. No icon will appear. Actual Results: No icon is created on the desktop Expected Results: A hard disk icon should appear on the desktop. Additional info: udev, dbus, hald, and gnome-volume-manager are all running after the failure occurred.

Using Ctrl-R to refresh the desktop does NOT make any icons appear.

Are there any interesting usb related messages produced by dmesg ?
Comment 3 Jordan 2004-12-14 10:48:10 EST
Dmesg shows the disks being mounted and unmounted, nothing as far as errors.

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test release, reopen and change the version to match. Thank you!

The information we've requested above is required in order to review this problem report further and diagnose/fix the issue if it is still present. Since there haven't been any updates to the report in quite a long time now after we've requested additional information, we're assuming the problem is either no longer present in our current OS release, or that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem. Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA", however if you still experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora release and are still interested in Red Hat tracking the issue, and assisting in troubleshooting the problem, please feel free to provide the information requested above, and reopen the report. Thank you in advance.
