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):
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.
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.
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.
