Description David Zeuthen 2005-06-07 15:02:13 EDT
Description of problem:

When I hotplug a USB storage device, I don't get any icon on the desktop even
though the device is mounted. Downgrading to gamin-0.0.26-1 make things work.

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

gamin-0.1.0-1.1 and a Fedora Rawhide system fully updated Mon Jun 6 2005. Should
also affect FC4.

How reproducible:

Always (also had a collegue (jrb) reproduce this).

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in to the GNOME desktop
2. Plug in USB storage device
  
Actual results:

There appears an icon in computer:/// in Nautilus for the storage device but it
isn't the one for a mounted disk

Expected results:

Icon in computer:/// should change to that of the storage device but in the
mounted state.

Additional info:

From a technical point of view, all this means that
/usr/libexec/gnome-vfs-daemon doesn't catch the change in /etc/mtab that occurs
when gnome-volume-manager is invoking mount(1) (and mount(1) updates
the /etc/mtab file). It's most likely a race condition of some sort.

Of course, there is the possibility that this is a bug with
gnome-vfs but since it works with gamin-0.0.26-1 (and fam before the gamin era)
I doubt it.

This was initially reported in bug 149199 since I mixed it up with another bug
report - Sorry.

To avoid getting into the technical intricacies of that one let's just
summarize as "dnotify sucks".
I think I have a fix in gnome CVS head, but it's a rather large patch, 
I need to make a new release, that I will push as a FC-4 update as 
we are freezed at this point.

Daniel, I'm closing this as ERRATA since a version that fixed this is available
in Rawhide / FC4 updates. Hope that is OK.

Sure, thanks !
