Description moylo 2006-11-12 16:24:34 EST
Description of problem:

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. setup a luks USB key eg
2. plug disk into usb port. Gnome prompts for LUKS password. Authentication is ok
3. Disk is not mounted. But...
[root@datou ~]# cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sdc1 sdc1
Command failed: Device already exists
[root@datou ~]# cryptsetup luksClose sdc1
[root@datou ~]# cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sdc1 sdc1
Enter LUKS passphrase: 
key slot 0 unlocked.
Command successful.
[root@datou ~]# mount /dev/sdc1 /media/emount
mount: /dev/sdc1 already mounted or /media/emount busy

Actual results:

Mounting from the command line works if Gnome does not get the chance to lock
the disk first. If Gnome gets a chance to attempt mount than it locks up the disk.

Expected results:
Disk should mount in Gnome once authentication has succeeded but does not.
