Description Michel Alexandre Salim 2008-07-31 04:00:22 UTC
Description of problem:
Any external device appears twice in Places/Computer; neither icon can be used
to mount the device.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in to GNOME
2. Plug in an external hard drive / USB thumb drive
Actual results:
Each device shows up as two icons. Also, a dialog box appears, once for each
unique device, with the following message:

Unable to mount KINGSTON

DBus error org.gtk.Private.RemoteVolumeMonitor.NotFound: The given volume was
not found

After the initial dialog box is closed, double-clicking on one of the icon
silently fails; double-clicking on the other icon reproduces the dialog box, but
now the volume label (KINGSTON) is replaced by 'location'

Expected results:
Should work

Additional info:
Also reported on Ubuntu's Intrepid Ibex alpha, a few days ago:

Maintainer indicated that he'd be reporting it upstream, but it does not look
like it's been reported

Comment 2 Michel Alexandre Salim 2008-07-31 22:58:48 UTC
Nautilus now mounts hard drives, though the duplicate listing still occurs. When
ripping audio CDs using sound-juicer, however, only one disc can be ripped. The
second disc can be read, but ripping / playing fails. The sound-juicer interface
stops refreshing, and on the terminal the following is printed:

** (sound-juicer:4078): WARNING **: Could not lock drive: Extracting audio from CD
Error trying to open /dev/sg0 exclusively (Permission denied): retrying in 1 second.
(repeated several times, then moving on to /dev/sga which does not even exists,
sgb, ...)

Comment 3 Michel Alexandre Salim 2008-07-31 23:01:00 UTC
The only recourse is to restart haldaemon. Killing all gvfsd-related processes
does not help. Problem occurs regardless of whether the first CD was ejected
from Nautilus or from sound-juicer

Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2008-08-01 01:41:49 UTC
I think this is already fixed in upstream gvfs. 

Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2008-08-24 01:19:48 UTC
Should be fixed in rawhide. Reopen if you still see it.
