Can you check your /var/log/messages to see if devlabel is saying 
something about a devlabel ignore_list regarding the partition that 
you are attempting to use devlabel with.  In the newer versions of 
devlabel, I have implemented this ignore_list to reduce the number of 
kernel errors people were experiencing with devlabel.  Basically, if 
devlabel sees there is something wrong with the partition table of 
the storage device, it won't allow you to use it with devlabel.

Try doing an sfdisk -V on the usbkey and let me know the results.

Comment 3 Jack Bowling 2004-02-20 16:18:33 UTC
No output from devlabel in the logs about an ignore_list, Gary. But I
did discover that sfdisk refuses to read the usbkey. Says "partition 1
extends past end of disk." So I reformatted with one vfat partition
but the same thing: devlabel sees the UUID on the device but refuses
to mount the partition. Too bad my other CF devices wouldn't work with
the older devlabel code cuz it really seems that having the ability to
specify partition number is the key to making this work.

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2005-01-21 23:19:20 UTC
At this point FC1 has reached its end of life, and it is unlikely that these
issues will be looked at for FC2's devlabel.
