Description firstname.lastname@example.org 2012-01-05 11:59:07 EST
Created attachment 550964 [details] 90-btrfs.rules Description of problem: I have a btrfs file system that spans two external disks. If I connect both disks when logged into a graphical console (where udisks is running) I can correctly mount the filesystem (although both gnome and kde are a little confused about what to do with the second disk!) Normally, however, this system does not run with a graphical console and udisks is not running. In this case, "btrfs device scan" is not run when the disks are plugged in and I cannot mount the file system. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): udev-173-3.fc16.x86_64 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Take two external USB disks with partitions /dev/sdc1 and /dev/sdd1. Plug both disks in and then: 2. mkfs.btrfs -L flora /dev/sdc1 mkdir /mnt/flora mount LABEL=flora /mnt/flora mkfs.btrfs /dev/sdd1 btrfs device add /dev/sdd1 /mnt/flora You should now have a single file system spanning both disks. Shut the machine down, unplug the disks, and reboot. 3. Log into a text console (so udisks isn't running) and plug both disks in. Wait for everything to settle and then btrfs filesystem show Will show the file system that spans two disks. Now mount LABEL=flora /mnt/flora Actual results: The file system doesn't mount Expected results: The file system should mount Additional info: What is missing is a udev rule to scan the disks as they are inserted. Put the attached file in /lib/udev/rules.d/90-btrfs.rules, go through the shutdown, unplug, reboot, plug in, mount sequence again and the file system will mount.
Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2013-01-16 15:36:01 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 16 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 16. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '16'. 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 16'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 16 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, you are encouraged to click on "Clone This Bug" and open it against that version of Fedora. 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 2 Fedora End Of Life 2013-02-13 19:00:56 EST
Fedora 16 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-02-12. Fedora 16 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.
