Description Tom Horsley 2006-09-08 22:44:36 EDT
Description of problem: On FC5, when I boot /dev/sdc5 shows up pointing to my external USB hard drive, on FC6t2 with latest updates, there is no USB drive in /dev/ when I boot - I have to unplug and plug back in for it to show up (at which point I do see /dev/sdc5 just as in FC5). Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Aug 29 19:12:07 (yumex) Updated: udev.x86_64 095-8 Sep 01 19:47:44 (yumex) Updated: hal.x86_64 0.5.7.1-3.fc6 Sep 08 22:00:36 (yumex) Installed: kernel.x86_64 2.6.17-1.2630.fc6 (not sure if any other components might be relevant) How reproducible: So far, everytime. Steps to Reproduce: 1. boot system 2. see no /dev/sdc5 3. Actual results: no disk device Expected results: disk device Additional info: I see the closed bug 201422 which implies that the additional rule fixes problems like this, however, I checked my 05-udev-early.rules file and it does indeed contain the rule 201422 talks about (it fact it is identical with the FC5 version of the file), so whatever is going on wasn't fixed by 201422. This is a 500GB Maxtor USB 2.0 drive in case it matters. On my FC5 system, I see this in the /var/log/dmesg file which appears to have something to do with the USB hard drive: ohci_hcd 0000:00:02.0: wakeup scsi4 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices usbcore: registered new driver usb-storage USB Mass Storage support registered. usb-storage: device found at 5 usb-storage: waiting for device to settle before scanning On FC6t2, I see nothing in the dmesg file that gives any hint that it has anything to do with the USB drive (and certainly none of the messages above show up in any form).

Just installed FC6t3 and worked through a bunch of problems to get it where it would boot, and found that the initial install from the DVD image has the same problem with not recognizing USB hard drive. However, once I ran yum and pulled in all the latest updates which got me to the 2647 kernel, it does recognize the USB disk, so it looks like this is probably fixed in latest devel versions.
