Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 208665
gnome-mount - after floppy mount wrong directory opens in a browser
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:47:03 EST
Description of problem:
If a floppy is mounted with a help of an icon in a "Computer" window
and one is trying to "Open" or "Browse" it _after_ that then an
expected directory content is shown; but if one does a mount by
a double-click on an icon then one gets a window opened to /
even if a /dev/fd0 was really mounted as expected.
With an external USB floppy double click on an icon monunt a correct
device and opens a window into it and not /. Not that surprising,
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
always on a double-click a floppy icon
Why file it against fc5 when the version release of the package is
gnome-mount-0.5-2.fc6 and since the floppy only recently appeared after an
update of hal (I think) in rawhide I think filing it against devel would be more
> Why file it against fc5 ...
A mistake. I clicked in a wrong place. Corrected.
Also happens on Fedora 8.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
