usermount works fine for me in Fedora Core test3.  Does this bug still exist for
you in the test3 release?  If so, maybe you could provide an strace or similar
diagnostic as to why it's hanging?
Comment 2 Pavel 2003-10-22 11:57:26 EDT
It works when I log in on the console, but when I log in with remote X session
it's stuck.
Comment 3 Nalin Dahyabhai 2003-10-23 12:23:57 EDT
Should be fixed in 1.69-1 (usermount would hang due to a bug if it tried to
present the "you can't mount anything, contact your sysadmin" dialog).  Thanks!
Comment 4 petrosyan 2003-10-25 14:05:14 EDT

Yep, it works fine with the recent usermode.
