Description John Reiser 2006-07-10 21:30:33 EDT
Description of problem: Sometimes I see two different partitions on the same external IEEE1394 [Firewire] harddrive get automounted on the same mount point: ----- $ df Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on /dev/hda12 8123168 3877696 3826180 51% / tmpfs 517748 0 517748 0% /dev/shm /dev/sda2 288198304 90500516 194769864 32% /media/disk /dev/sda1 288198304 90500516 194769864 32% /media/disk ----- Notice that /media/disk is both /dev/sda2 and /dev/sda1. (When I see this, then I turn off the power on the external drive, to try to avoid scrambled filesystems.) Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): udev-084-13 nautilus-2.14.1-1.fc5.1 gnome-desktop-2.14.2-1 initscripts-8.31.5-1 kernel-2.6.17-1.2145_FC5 How reproducible: always Steps to Reproduce: 1. boot system, attach external 1394 [Firewire] harddrive with 2 ext3 partitions 2. turn on harddrive, wait for automounting 3. Actual results: /dev/sda2 288198304 90500516 194769864 32% /media/disk /dev/sda1 288198304 90500516 194769864 32% /media/disk Expected results: /dev/sda1 288198304 90500516 194769864 32% /media/disk /dev/sda2 116661 4173 111284 4% /media/disk-1 Additional info: The external harddrive also has a USB-2.0 interface. If I boot the system, attach the external harddrive via the USB-2.0 interface, then the two partitions get mounted correctly on distinct mount points. Then, I can unmount both partitions, turn off the harddrive, disconnect the USB-2.0 cable, connect the 1394 cable, turn on the harddrive, and see both partitions mounted correctly on distinct mount points. So there is something special about getting automounted for the first time after boot using the 1394 interface. I will attach portions of /var/log/messages for both failure (mounted first by 1394 after boot) and for success (mounted first by USB-2.0, then by 1394).
Comment 1 John Reiser 2006-07-10 21:32:51 EDT
Created attachment 132215 [details] /var/log/messages for failure boot system, connect harddrive via IEEE-1394 interface, turn on harddrive, wait for automounting.
Comment 2 John Reiser 2006-07-10 21:35:04 EDT
Created attachment 132216 [details] /var/log/messages for success boot system, connect external harddrive via USB-2.0 interface, turn on harddrive, wait for automounting; verify distinct mount points for the two partitions. unmount both partitions manually, turn off harddrive, disconnect USB-2.0 cable, connect IEEE-1394 cable, turn on harddrive, wait for automounting; verify distinct mount points for the two partitions.

This problem has disappeared; I do not see it in Fedora 9 Beta.
