Description Andrew D. Stadler 2004-09-25 00:19:11 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
for certain types of devices (e.g. removable storage) a key desire is
to see that it's being recognized by the system when added/removed.

in order to do that, currently, must quit and restart the hwbrowser. 
wouldn't it be cool if there was a "refresh" button that would rescan
the currently displayed pane?

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  open hwbrowser
2.  wait for display
3.  add/remove hardware (e.g. insert a CF card with a filesystem)
4.  drives pane is now inaccurate

Actual Results:  it just shows the old information

Expected Results:  there should be a way to rescan and see the
inserted device

A refresh button wouldn't be too bad but the current codebase doesn't
make it too easy to implement that i.e. I probably wouldn't get around
to implementing that until after FC3 is final -- or even later as
there are other things with higher priority waiting.

Feel free to submit patches though ;-).

Comment 2 Matthew Miller 2005-04-26 15:18:53 UTC
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.

Comment 3 Andrew D. Stadler 2005-05-03 20:27:46 UTC
As of FC3/latest and hwbrowser-0.20-0.fc3.1 this would still be a useful fix.

Comment 4 Nils Philippsen 2006-02-28 10:02:59 UTC
This RFE has been open without action for a long time. Closing as DEFERRED to
reflect the actual situation.
