Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 238005
Removable USB drive mounted with root ownership
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:50:20 EST
Description of problem:
My SanDisk Cruzer Micro 2.0GB removable USB drive is not writable by my non-root
user ID after gnome-volume-manager mounts it and Nautilus opens a new window for
it. The /media/disk directory is owned by root instead of my userid. This is a
regression from my FC6 machine where this works flawlessly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Copy files to my USB drive on FC6 and unmount drive.
2. Bring USB drive to rawhide machine and plug in.
3. Nautilus opens a window, but I cannot write to or delete files from it.
Nautilus prints a warning that I do not have appropriate ownership and refuses
The drive (/media/disk) should be owned by my userid.
When I unmount the drive using Nautilus, I do not get the 'You may safely remove
this device' message that I get on FC6. That message gives me warm, fuzzy feelings.
