Description Chris Runge 2003-08-09 21:49:11 EDT
Description of problem:

I have a USB hard drive connected to a Cardbus USB 2 card. When I try to use
devlabel to add a symlink for the device in question (/dev/sda1), it is
necessary to run the command twice. The first time it complains that it can't
see the device in /proc/partitions. e.g.,

# /sbin/devlabel add -s /dev/firelite -d /dev/sda1
The device you are trying to add to devlabel does not show up in

# /sbin/devlabel add -s /dev/firelite -d /dev/sda1
SYMLINK: /dev/firelite -> /dev/sda1
Added /dev/firelite to /etc/sysconfig/devlabel

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


How reproducible:

100% reproducible if USB hard drive has not yet been mounted

Odd, devlabel should be getting run by hotplug anyway.
