Description Matthew Mott 2004-04-18 08:30:27 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040116

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):

How reproducible:

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

Additional info:

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.

The USB device string is *not* what is matched... that's pretty much

What's the output of kudzu -p -b scsi?

Will be in hwdata-0.118-1 when it's built, thanks!
