Description Forrest 2004-04-16 18:00:15 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040312

Description of problem:
I have a 6-in-1 card reader that I am using in Bug #110653, where I
have to put a scsi_mod option in /etc/modprobe.conf to probe multiple
LUNs.  When I plug in the USB card reader, it will recognize sda-sdd,
but when I put in a card (e.g., hdd1), /dev/hdd1 is never created and
I get this error when I try to mount it:
mount: special device /dev/sdd1 does not exist

If I plug in the card reader with the card in it, udev creates the
/dev/hdd1 device, and it works properly.

I am not certain that udev should REMOVE devices.  In working with
FC2test2, udev originally removed all of my used devices at reboot
(like tty*, hda*, etc.), and it would not create them at startup.  Is
this expected behaviour from udev?

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Plug in a USB card reader
2.  Plug in a card

Actual Results:  I cannot mount the cards.

dmesg output

This is the dmesg output.  USB device 2 was when I just added the card reader,
and subsequently the car.  Device 3 was when I attached the card reader with
the card already in the slot
Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2004-04-21 10:10:32 EDT
this is more a kernel driver issue...
try udev-024 with /udev as the /dev root and yes, udev should REMOVE
device nodes
Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2004-06-04 06:23:10 EDT
ok, made the REMOVE configurable.
