Description Need Real Name 2005-01-11 20:20:07 EST
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en) AppleWebKit/125.5.5 (KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/125.12 Description of problem: With the kernel-2.6.10-1.8_FC2 and initscripts-7.55.2-1 rpms installed on current FC2, I find that insertion of a usb memory key after bootup doesn't cause a Flash icon to appear in the Computer folder under the Gnome desktop. Only by booting the machine with the usb key inserted do I get the Flash icon in the Computer folder on the desktop. Also in that case if I remove the usb key the Flash icon disappears but when I reinsert the usb key the Flash icon doesn't reappear as it should. Looking at the /var/log/messages file it appears that the usb key is recognized by the kernel and assigned a sd device name as usual. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): kernel-2.6.10-1.8_FC2 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install FC2 and update to latest kernel 2. insert a USB memory key 3. Open the Computer folder on the Gnome Desktop Actual Results: There is no Flash icon in the Computer folder after insertion of the usb memory key. Expected Results: I expected a Flash icon (which could be mounted) to appear in the Computer Folder of the Gnome Desktop. Additional info: If I boot the machine with the usb key preinserted I find that the Flash icon does appear in the Computer folder. However when I remove and reinsert the usb memory key, the Flash icon disappears but doesn't reappear.

if the kernel detects it, theres not much else it can do. reassigning.

Not a bug. Upgrade to FC3 if you want this feature.

This was actually a bug in the hotplug scripts and was fixed in hotplug-2004_04_01-1.1.
