Description of problem:
When I plug in my USB camera I don't get any entry added to

/mnt/camera'. There are no subdirectories in /media.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

I need two things.
1. With your camera plugged in, powered up and mounted please post the
output from lshal(1).
2. Plug out your camera; stop the hal daemon (service haldaemon stop)
and paste the output from this
# hald --daemon=no
(wait 10-20 secs, then plug in your camera)
I think the problem was the missing fstab-sync symlink.
for a suggested change to the package scriptlets.
The package is now installing the symlink and it's now called
50-fstab-sync.hal (all HAL callouts now need to have the .hal suffix).
I have uploaded a new pacakge hal-0.2.97.cvs20040823-1 to Rawhide with
