Description Rodger Wang 2004-09-28 16:05:32 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040926

Description of problem:
Previous FC release used to be able to detect and insert an entry in
/etc/fstab. FC3T2 with kudzu-1.1.90-1 failed to add the entry. There
is even no mount point created in /media, but I can see hde1, which is
the MD, in hardware browser.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Find a IBM MD(or maybe any Flash disk), and insert it in a PCMCIA
2. Insert the adaptor in the PCMCIA slot
3. boot FC3T2 with kudzu-1.1.90-1

Actual Results:  MD not mounted, no entry in /etc/fstab, no mount
point defined in /media

Expected Results:  should be mounted automatically

Unfortunately ide hotplug doesn't work very reliably, see bug 130232,
so I've removed support of this in the hal daemon; I'm hoping this
will get fixed in a subsequent release of Fedora Core. You should be
able to get by with adding an entry yourself in the /etc/fstab file.


Comment 2 David Zeuthen 2004-10-19 23:09:39 UTC
I've managed to write a small patch to make this hald work around this
despite bug 130232. Should be available in hal-0.4.0-5.

Comment 3 David Zeuthen 2004-10-19 23:38:23 UTC
Fix is in hal-0.4.0-5 which will be available in tomorrows upload.
Feel free to reopen this bug if it doesn't work for you.
