Description Michael Kenney 2006-04-22 02:28:06 EDT
Description of problem:
Compact Flash card in a pcmcia adaptor is listed as a non-removable drive, i.e.
SYSFS{removable} is set to "0". This seems to be preventing gnome-mount from
mounting the drive. gnome-mount tells me I am "not privileged to mount the
volume" (even as root). Works fine if I place an entry in /etc/fstab which makes
sense as HAL probably considers it to be a "fixed" disk.

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

How reproducible:
Happens every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert CF card in adaptor
2. PCMCIA subsystem recognizes device and assigns it to /dev/hde
Actual results:
cat /sys/block/hde/removable

Expected results:
cat /sys/block/hde/removable

Additional info:
This operation has worked fine on FC1 - FC4

Comment 2 Dave Jones 2006-10-16 13:42:56 EDT
A new kernel update has been released (Version: 2.6.18-1.2200.fc5)
based upon a new upstream kernel release.

Please retest against this new kernel, as a large number of patches
go into each upstream release, possibly including changes that
may address this problem.

This bug has been placed in NEEDINFO state.
Due to the large volume of inactive bugs in bugzilla, if this bug is
still in this state in two weeks time, it will be closed.

Should this bug still be relevant after this period, the reporter
can reopen the bug at any time. Any other users on the Cc: list
of this bug can request that the bug be reopened by adding a
comment to the bug.

In the last few updates, some users upgrading from FC4->FC5
have reported that installing a kernel update has left their
systems unbootable. If you have been affected by this problem
please check you only have one version of device-mapper & lvm2
installed.  See bug 207474 for further details.

If this bug is a problem preventing you from installing the
release this version is filed against, please see bug 169613.

If this bug has been fixed, but you are now experiencing a different
problem, please file a separate bug for the new problem.

Thank you.
