Description Michal Jaegermann 2004-05-08 21:22:56 EDT
Description of problem:

I am trying to plug and unplug a USB floppy (with a formatted
diskette inside - BTW).  On a plugin a device is recognized:

  Vendor: SONY      Model: USB-FDU           Rev: 5.01
  Type:   Direct-Access                      ANSI SCSI revision: 02

and the following shows up in logs:

disk at /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:10.3/usb5/5-1/5-1:1.0/host5/5:0:0:0

but nothing in /etc/fstab until I will rerun 'updfstab' manually
(as root - of course).  Then such line shows up there:

/dev/sdb                /mnt/floppy             auto   
noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0

OTOH when that device is uplugged that the line above is promptly
removed making replugging this device from a user account quite
frustrating experience.

This was checked on x86_64.  My i386 test rig does not have USB
although I would be surprised if a behaviour there would be different.

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