Description Dan Horák 2010-01-25 10:31:22 EST
Description of problem:
No device node is created after connecting USB flash disk to PC and even the usb-storage module is not loaded. The machine is upgraded from F-10 to F-12, but I had no such problems in F-10.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Additional info:

dmesg output after connecting the flash-disk:
usb 2-2: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 9
usb 2-2: New USB device found, idVendor=2008, idProduct=2018
usb 2-2: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3

usb 2-2: Manufacturer: Hisun   
usb 2-2: SerialNumber: O20070925A000419

after loading usb-storage with modprobe these messages appear:

but no /dev/sdd or /dev/sdd1 nodes exist

running "udevadm  monitor --kernel --udev" with usb-storage already loaded returns:

monitor will print the received events for:
UDEV - the event which udev sends out after rule processing
KERNEL - the kernel uevent

Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2010-03-17 12:25:58 EDT
huh? strange!

is /dev/sg6 present?

can you create and access it manually?

# /sbin/MAKEDEV -x /dev/sdd
# /sbin/MAKEDEV -x /dev/sdd1

Unfortunately I can't it reproduce now, probably some of the updates fixed it.
