Description Michael de Mare 2008-04-19 08:16:50 EDT
Description of problem: I am trying to configure my Fedora 8 system to automatically back up the selected directory to the selected volume on a nightly basis. Toward this goal, I wrote a program to select a filesystem based on a tag on the solid-state device for use in my backup script. This worked fine when I was only making one nightly backup. But when I tried to add a third solid-state drive to my system, it did not create a device for it and, consequently, I could not mount it.
Comment 1 Michael de Mare 2008-04-19 08:41:37 EDT
Fixed with MAKEDEV
Comment 2 Michael de Mare 2008-04-19 09:21:57 EDT
The additional USB drives are not attached to the new sd*1
Comment 3 David Zeuthen 2008-04-19 12:55:56 EDT
So hal does not create device nodes; this sounds more like a kernel / udev problem. Suggest to include more information, for example dmesg output etc.
Comment 4 Michael de Mare 2008-04-19 16:02:25 EDT
Now all the devices are attached. There seems to be an intermittent error, but I don't have any idea how to reproduce it.
Comment 5 Harald Hoyer 2008-04-21 03:03:01 EDT
dmesg, /var/log/messages, etc... more information please.
Comment 6 Michael de Mare 2008-04-21 08:15:42 EDT
After I created the devices with MAKEDEV, it didn't initially connect the usb drives to them, but now it does. I never rebooted the system.
Comment 7 Harald Hoyer 2008-04-21 08:36:18 EDT
which devices did you create what is the output of # dmesg and any relevant information in /var/log/messages? what is the output of # lsusb
Comment 8 Michael de Mare 2008-04-21 09:26:54 EDT
The devices that I created were /dev/sdd /dev/sde /dev/sdf. The rest of the information will have to wait until I get home.
Comment 9 Michael de Mare 2008-04-21 14:35:10 EDT
Created attachment 303185 [details] dmesg, lsusb This contains the output of dmesg and lsusb. It is not necessary to comment on the cooling problems in my system, I am aware of it.
Comment 10 Michael de Mare 2008-04-21 14:41:44 EDT
The lsusb got cut off. Sorry. Here it is in full. [mikey@mikey-ws ~]$ /sbin/lsusb Bus 001 Device 034: ID 13fe:1d00 Kingston Technology Company Inc.

Comment 11 Bug Zapper 2008-11-26 05:31:27 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '8'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life. Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Comment 12 Bug Zapper 2009-01-09 02:46:58 EST
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug. If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
