Description of problem:
Desktop device icons properties list both device name and mount point
that existed according to fstab when the icon was created. This works
fine as long as all USB devices are always connected in the same
sequence. But since the fstab entries are dynamic and the device icon
properties are static, the devices cannot be mounted if the devices
are connected in a different order -- indeed, if one or more devices
is not connected at all -- BECAUSE both device and mount point are
apparently used in the mount command.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Connect USB Flash drive then USB hard drive
2.Create desktop devices for each
3.Disconnect both USB drives
4.Connect USB hard drive, then USB Flash drive
5.Clicking on either icon results in error
Actual Results: Failure to mount
Expected Results: Would be nice for drive(s) to be mounted
No weird configuration at all. This is an ASUS A7N8X IDE system with
an Adaptec 2940 SCSI card for tape and scanner and stock USB jacks
Fedora Core 3 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 FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.
The information we've requested above is required in order
to review this problem report further and diagnose/fix the
issue if it is still present. Since there haven't been any
updates to the report in quite a long time now after we've
requested additional information, we're assuming the problem
is either no longer present in our current OS release, or
that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem.
Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA", however if you still
experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora 8
release and are still interested in Red Hat tracking
the issue, and assisting in troubleshooting the problem,
please feel free to provide the information requested above,
and reopen the report.
Thank you in advance.
