Description of problem:
When inserting an IBM USB memory key, the key is not recognised and
added to fstab. Although an output from lsusb reveals:
Bus 004 Device 011: ID 08ec:0012 M-Systems Flash Disk Pioneers
which should be matched by the "match Flash" line in the flash section
of updfstab.conf.default, this does not happen.
The problem can be rectified by adding the line:
match hd "Memory Key"
to either the flash or memstick sections of updfstab.conf.default.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert an IBM Memory Key
2. View the contents of /etc/fstab, and observe that no line has been
added for it.
Actual Results: Nothing happens at all. The USB device is detected
and shown in lsusb and can be manually mounted, but kudzu/updfstab do
not recognise it.
Expected Results: The device should have been recognised, and a line
added to /etc/fstab, a link created in /mnt and the device should be
I updated to hwdata-0.117-1 but this did not solve the problem. By
adding the line
match hd "Memory Key"
to one of the "device" sections in updfstab.conf.default the memory
key can be made to work. This line probably needs to be added as
default in the next release of hwdata.
Information about the key from /proc/bus/usb/devices:
T: Bus=04 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=01 Cnt=01 Dev#= 11 Spd=12 MxCh= 0
D: Ver= 2.00 Cls=00(>ifc ) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS=64 #Cfgs= 1
P: Vendor=08ec ProdID=0012 Rev= 2.00
S: Product=USB 2.0 Memory Key
C:* #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=80 MxPwr= 94mA
I: If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 2 Cls=08(stor.) Sub=06 Prot=50 Driver=usb-storage
E: Ad=81(I) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 64 Ivl=0ms
E: Ad=02(O) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 64 Ivl=0ms
The USB device string is *not* what is matched... that's pretty much
What's the output of kudzu -p -b scsi?
Output of kudzu -p -b scsi (memory key section):
desc: "Ibm Memory Key"
What partition does it use?
First partition - /dev/sdb1
Will be in hwdata-0.118-1 when it's built, thanks!
