Description of problem:
USB flashdisks doesn't mount on desktop in FC4 with VIA Motherboard (Celeron 2.6 MHz, not sure but I think it is a VIA VT8235). /var/log/messages sees the USB as /dev/sda1 but it is not possible to do "mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/test" (it hangs).
The FC4 is a FC3 which has been updated to FC4 (with all update installed).
The problems was already there in the FC3 but was fixed by an updated RPM. Seems to be coming back in FC4. The VIA Motherboard PC is the only linuxbox I own where FC4 did this.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. plug USB flashdisk
2. nothing happens on the GNOME desktop
3. "mount -t vfat /de/sda1 /mnt/test" does nothing
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
Fedora Core 4 is no longer maintained.
Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the
current Fedora release, please reopen this bug and assign it to the
corresponding Fedora version.
