Description Phil Frederick 2005-03-23 09:37:26 EST

Description of problem:
This is a strange one and it took me forever to track down.  I have a laptop with an external DVD+/-RW and USB HD.  When FC3 is first insatlled all is well.  After going through the updates (including the 2.6.10-1.277_FC3) and subsequent reboot, I cannot browse the USB HD - neither using GNOME, KDE, nor bash.  It simply locks up.  If I kill the GNOME window, nautilus crashes and that's all she wrote - I have to do a hard reset.  By rolling back to the default install of HAL, everything works.

Now there are some weird combinations where 0.4.7 seems to work ok.  If I have the USB HD attached, but the DVD powered down - works fine.  If I have the DVD on, but the USB HD powered down - works fine.  If I have both devices on and a DVD/CD mounted in the DVD drive - works fine.  If I have both devices on and nothing mounted in the DVD drive - USB HD is inaccessable.  Umounting and remounting the USB HD does not work.  It does not matter if the devices are attached via a powered USB 2.0 hub, and unpowered hub, or directly into the USB ports.

The only solution I have found so far is to roll back to a previous version of HAL

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

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.

Thank you!
