Description Lenny G. Arbage 2006-01-06 23:39:41 EST
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7 Description of problem: USB drives are not automatically mounted, although the scsi subsystem does detect the device and manual mounting is possible. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): dbus-0.33-3.fc4.1 hal-0.5.2-2 gnome-volume-manager-1.3.1-1 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. insert USB drive into USB port Actual Results: The drive was not automatically mounted. Expected Results: The drive should have automatically mounted, an icon should have appeared on the desktop Additional info: This is all I get when I attach a USB drive: Jan 6 21:23:17 treafy kernel: sda: Write Protect is off Jan 6 21:23:17 treafy kernel: sda: assuming drive cache: write through Jan 6 21:23:17 treafy kernel: SCSI device sda: 253440 512-byte hdwr sectors (130 MB) Jan 6 21:23:17 treafy kernel: sda: Write Protect is off Jan 6 21:23:17 treafy kernel: sda: assuming drive cache: write through Jan 6 21:23:17 treafy kernel: sda: sda1 Jan 6 21:23:17 treafy kernel: Attached scsi removable disk sda at scsi1, channel 0, id 0, lun 0 Jan 6 21:23:17 treafy scsi.agent: disk at /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.2/usb4/4-2/4-2:1.0/host1/target1:0:0/1:0:0:0 Jan 6 21:23:30 treafy kernel: usb 4-2: USB disconnect, address 3 Jan 6 21:23:50 treafy ntpd: synchronized to 188.8.131.52, stratum 1 Notice that there is no output from udev or fstab-sync, so the usb drive doesn't show up on the desktop (though I can manually mount sda1). On another box, same FC4, this device works perfectly. The difference is that the non-working box was upgraded from FC2, while the working box was upgraded from FC3. I'm pulling my hair out trying to discover what I'm missing on the non-working box. Any tips for fixing this?
Comment 1 Lenny G. Arbage 2006-01-07 02:51:15 EST
I should also mention that the haldaemon user/group did not exist a priori on the non-working box, and that /etc/init.d/messagebus complained appropriately. I have added a haldaemon user/group manually that matches the one that exists on the working FC4 box, i.e., [~]$ cat /etc/passwd | grep haldaemon haldaemon:x:68:68:HAL daemon:/:/sbin/nologin [~]$ cat /etc/group | grep haldaemon haldaemon:x:68: [~]$ sudo cat /etc/shadow | grep haldaemon haldaemon:!!:13155:0:99999:7::: This doesn't change the behavior.

This is no usbutils problem. Assigning to gnome-volume-manager.
Comment 3 Christian Iseli 2007-01-22 05:46:59 EST
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd. Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and either update the target product or close it ? Thanks.

seems to work in fc6
