Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 157618
hald requires restarting to detect new USB device
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:43:28 EST
Description of problem:
If you insert a USB pen, it is picked up. Dismount and try to mount a new device
and hald needs restarting before it is picked up
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plug in a USB pen, mount and dismount
2. Insert a new USB device into the same USB port
The new USB device is not picked up
The new USB device is picked up
If I execute /etc/init.d/haldaemon restart, it reports that stopping hald has
failed, but the restart worked.
Restarting hald does not fix the continued problem with internal USB card readers.
