Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 443287
FakeRAID volumes doesn't show up in 'Computer' folder
Last modified: 2015-03-03 17:32:27 EST
Description of problem:
A ntfs-formatted volume on a disk connected to a FastTrack IDE controller
doesn't show up in Nautilus
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I have the following setup:
Primary motherboard IDE controller (ICH4) master disk:
* /dev/sda1 - ntfs volume (label: System)
* /dev/sda2 - ext3 volume (Fedora)
* /dev/sda3 - swap
Primary motherboard IDE controller (ICH4) slave disk:
* /dev/sdb1 - ntfs volume (label: Misc)
Secondary motherboard IDE controller (ICH4)
Motherboard SATA controller provided by a Promise PDC20376
* /dev/mapper/pdc_cdcggfgcp1 - ntfs volume (label: Repository)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot the system
2. Open "Computer" folder from the Computer desktop icon
On the folder I get the following folders:
On fc8 this worked, but Repository was mounted as /dev/sdc1, even if the
/dev/mapper/pdc_ entry was still present I found that on fc9, trying to 'mount
-t ntfs /dev/sdc1 /mnt' doesn't work anymore, instead gives the error:
Error opening '/dev/sdc1': No such device or address
Failed to mount '/dev/sdc1': No such device or address
You seem to have a SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware and must use an activated,
different device under /dev/mapper/, (e.g. /dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1)
to mount NTFS. Please see the 'dmraid' documentation for help.
So probably, now that ntfs-3g or the kernel refuses to mount volumes from
standard block devices where these represents fakeRAID volumes, Nautilus (or
gvfs, or fuse) don't see the volume.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
On Fedora 11 I
