Hal sets wrong flags on USB hard drive after suspend
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:50:21 EST
Description of problem:
After resuming from suspend and connecting a usb hard drive, it is not
automatically mounted and when trying to do so with gnome-mount in text mode the
error is that the partition has the 'ignore' flag set and so it can't be mounted
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always after suspend
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Suspend the pc
3. Connect a usb hard drive
The device should be automatically mounted
Restarting hal daemon by hand resolves this, so maybe had should be restarted
after a suspend
Sounds weird. Can you reproduce this? Two requests
1. When this is happening, please run lshal and attach the output to this bug
2. Do you have the file /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/gparted-disable-automount.fdi
or any other partitioning program running when connecting the drive?
First I need to change the description because the problem is not just after
suspend but also happens after a fresh start.
Please find attached below the output from dmesg regarding the drive recognition
and the attempts to mount it by hand and also the lshal output.
Regarding your second question, no the fdi you wrote doesn't exist and I have no
partitioning program running.

Looks like a dupe of bug 238385 - can you try updating udev? Thanks.
There is no update after the one I have udev-106-3.fc7 so I'll wait until the
next release and report back,
thanks for your info.
Well, I'm pretty sure that's why... so closing this bug as a dupe.
Btw, bug 238385 comment 2 shows a work around until packages for udev-106-4.fc7
or newer are moved over.
