Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 225194
Unable to mount - not built with HAL support
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:54 EST
Description of problem: After inserting a CD or DVD the icon for the disc shows
up on the desktop and in Thunar under XFCE 4.4.0. However, trying to double
click to mount produces the error: "exo-mount: Cannot mount by HAL device UDI,
because HAL support was disabled for this build."
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): XFCE 4.4.0, exo
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert Disc
2. Double-click to mount
Actual results: Not mounted
Expected results: Mounted disc
Additional info: Should be a simple recompile.
Thanks for the bug report.
I will see about pushing out a fixed exo soon...
I just pushed a corrected exo out. It should be released as an update soon.
If you would like to test it out, there is an unsigned package available
directly from the build system at:
Please let me know if this solves your issue.
Note that gtk-doc is broken in devel currently, so this update was only pushed
out for fc6 at this time.
This solves my issue. I see nice names now instead of "fd0" etc. :)
P.S. Please add "thunar-volman" to Extras when you get a chance. This is an
important plug-in for Thunar to really unleash the power of HAL/DBUS. I have it
Glad to hear it.
I am going to go ahead and close this bug now. If you spot any problems,
please do file a new bug or re-open this one. ;)
Thanks for the bug report!
FYI, Christopher has a thunar-volman package ready to submit.
It was waiting on this hal support:
