Description of problem:
I have a USB flash card that isn't automatically added to /etc/fstab.

Here is what "kudzu -p" returns about it:

class: HD
bus: USB
detached: 0
driver: usb-storage
desc: "Alcor Micro Corp. USB Flash drive"
usbclass: 8
usbsubclass: 6
usbprotocol: 50
usbbus: 1
usblevel: 2
usbport: 1
usbdev: 5
vendorId: 058f
deviceId: 9380
usbmfr: Generic
usbprod: Mass Storage Device
class: HD
bus: SCSI
detached: 0
device: sda
driver: ignore
desc: "Generic Mobile Disk"
host: 1
id: 0
channel: 0
lun: 0
generic: sg0

I don't know why but it seems to be detected twice: once as HD/SCSI
and once as HD/USB.

In /etc/updfstab.conf.default, there is an entry in device flash that

    match   hd Flash

But this doesn't work. I had to add the following for my USB device to
be detected:

    match   hd "Generic Mobile Disk"

It seems that updfstab ignores the HD/USB entry, and only reads the
description of the HD/SCSI one. Is it normal ?

Wouldn't be even smarter to simply consider that all USB/HD are flash
cards by default if their description doesn't match enything in
/etc/updfstab.conf.default ?

Thanks for your help.

Not really, as there are USB attachable 'real' hard drives.
Comment 2 Julien Olivier 2004-04-29 17:57:15 EDT
Well, then I guess you should add 

match   hd "Generic Mobile Disk"

to the /etc/upfstab.conf.default file, as I had to add it myself in
the "flash device" section.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2005-09-22 16:49:42 EDT
In Fedora Core 3 and later, handling of mounting of devices is done via the
'hal' component. As such, changes to updfstab are very unlikely to be made in
the future (in fact, it is no longer shipped in the kudzu tarball.)
