Comment 1 David Zeuthen 2006-10-26 16:10:50 EDT
Are you running as root?
Comment 2 Edouard Bourguignon 2006-10-27 02:18:44 EDT
no, as a normal user. Do you think it's just a permissions problem? I can try
with root
Comment 3 Edouard Bourguignon 2006-10-27 02:41:52 EDT
no same thing in my root session, same dmesg and nothing mounted
Comment 4 David Zeuthen 2006-10-27 11:26:06 EDT
Right, automounting is known not to work for root because of pam_console issues.
I presume you are running GNOME? Please include as attachments

 1. output of 'lshal --monitor' when plugging in iPod
 2. outpot of 'lshal' when the ipod is plugged in

Comment 5 Edouard Bourguignon 2006-10-27 11:28:44 EDT
yep i'm running GNOME

I will include those outputs ASAP
Comment 6 Edouard Bourguignon 2006-10-28 03:46:17 EDT
Here is the output of 'lshal --monitor' when plugging in ipod:

Comment 8 Filipe Miranda 2006-11-10 22:32:31 EST
I have the same problem but when mounting through USB.
The Gnome does not mount it and I'm not able to use any of the ipod's managers
like amarok or gtkpod to transfer musics. I can just manually mount it and use
it as a pen drive.

my lshal output after plugging the ipod in
Comment 11 John Heidemann 2006-12-20 18:06:51 EST
I observed the same problem with a USB-mounted ipod.
I believe   this is because gnome-volume-manager is now "smarter" about ipods.
Automounting works again (for me) after  running gnome-volume-properties and
selecting  "play music files when connected" on the multimedia tab.

(Grumble: this is yet another case of a gnome enhancement appearing unannounced
and backwards compatibility.  It's basically an improvement, but painful for
older users, and particularly painful because gnome-volume-manager has no
documentation whatsoever.)

If this fix works for others this bug can probably be closed out as NOTABUG.

what Johnh explains was working great on FC6 but now it seems that it doesn't
work anymore on F7
