Description of problem:
With the kernel-2.6.10-1.8_FC2 and initscripts-7.55.2-1 rpms installed
on current FC2, I find that insertion of a usb memory key after bootup
doesn't cause a Flash icon to appear in the Computer folder under the
Gnome desktop. Only by booting the machine with the usb key inserted
do I get the Flash icon in the Computer folder on the desktop. Also in that
case if I remove the usb key the Flash icon disappears but when I reinsert
the usb key the Flash icon doesn't reappear as it should. Looking at the
/var/log/messages file it appears that the usb key is recognized by the
kernel and assigned a sd device name as usual.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC2 and update to latest kernel
2. insert a USB memory key
3. Open the Computer folder on the Gnome Desktop
Actual Results: There is no Flash icon in the Computer folder after insertion of the usb memory key.
Expected Results: I expected a Flash icon (which could be mounted) to appear in the Computer Folder of the Gnome Desktop.
If I boot the machine with the usb key preinserted I find that the Flash icon does appear in the Computer folder. However when I remove and reinsert the usb memory key, the Flash icon disappears but doesn't reappear.
if the kernel detects it, theres not much else it can do. reassigning.
Not a bug. Upgrade to FC3 if you want this feature.
This was actually a bug in the hotplug scripts and was fixed in
