Inability to mount KINGSTON USB thumbdrives.
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:51:32 EST
Description of problem:
Automount of Kingston Data Traveler USB thumbdrives is broken in Fedora 7 i386.
This appears to be either a problem with gnome-mount or HAL or both (assigning
here to gnome-mount). When running hal-device as root there is no such instance
as of any devices with any info on them for 'KINGSTON' nor when trying to run
gnome-mount -d /dev/sdc1 (corresponding to the KINGSTON device according to
dmesg) results in the device being mounted. Only way to mount is as root from CLI.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update F7 to the latest batch of updates.
2. Insert a Kingston USB Data Traveler thumbdrive to a USB port.
The USB drive is not mounted.
The USB drive to be mounted.
hal-devices output from the system this is happening
strace output of gnome-mount -d /dev/sdc1

Created attachment 160380 [details]
strace output from running gnome-mount against the device reported by dmesg
Forgot to metion that this _only_ affects Fedora i386, as x86_64 doesn't exhibit
Most likely yet another dupe of bug 249282.
