Description Ulrich Drepper 2007-09-26 21:49:20 UTC
Description of problem:
Automatic mounting of an encrypted USB stick works.  The keyring is queries etc.
 But at the end of the mounting process a dialog pops up:

    Cannot mount volume.

    Error org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.UnknownError

                 An unknown error occured

(I don't post a screenshot, this text is all there is).  There are no messages
in any of the log file.

And I also don't see why.  The mount actually was successful.

The only issue is that sometimes the umount (using right-click on the icon on
the desktop) does not work.  Or not completely and the mount point directory is
left behind.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.get encrypted USB stick (I use cryptset-luks)
2.plug in
Actual results:
above dialog

Expected results:
no dialog and no problems while unmounting

Same memory stick, different machine, this time freshly installed F8t3 (instead
of updated from F8t1).  Here everything just works.  One difference (beside the
updating) is that on this machine I started out from a clean keyring instead of
keeping the old /home around on the other machine.

I haven't seen this problem in a long time, maybe never with F9, I cannot say for sure.  I close the bug, anybody hitting it can use F9.
