Description Deji Akingunola 2007-07-11 19:48:10 EDT
Description of problem: After updating to udev-113-3.fc8, external disk drives
cannot be mounted, the device nodes were not created. Downgrading to
udev-113-2.fc8 make things work again. My two internal disk (one SATA and the
other IDE disk) were of course mounted fine.

does it work if you add "nomcollect" to the kernel command line with
udev-113-3.fc8 ??
Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2007-07-13 06:34:48 EDT
btw, which kind of external drive is this? USB?
Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2007-07-13 06:38:03 EDT
if booting with nomcollect does not work, try to change the line in
/etc/udev/rules.d/05-udev-early.rules from:
ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="pnp", ATTR{id}=="?*", RUN+="modprobe_helper
pnp:d$attr{id}"
to:
ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="pnp", RUN+="/bin/sh -c 'while read id; do
/sbin/modprobe pnp:d$$id; done < /sys/$devpath/id'"

and see if that works.

Booting with 'nomcollect' works. Yes, it's a USB drive, but also has a firewire
interface. I have the same issue (booting without nomcollect) if I connect
through the firewire interface.

Issue fixed in udev-113-4.fc8 (without needing to boot with nomcollect). Thanks.
