Description Don 2009-05-27 17:32:36 UTC
Description of problem:
I used the network install CD to do a clean install of Fedora 11 Preview on an HP pavilion a375c which as a "multi-media card reader". (Memory stick/ MS Pro, etc)

After installation linux inserting a memory stick had no effect. I didn't know how to get the contents of the MS. I though it might be a mount issue, so I installed (yum install) am-utils. Then it worked properly. When I insert the MS, an icon appears on my desktop and I can navigate through the MS filesystem.



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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do a clean installation of F11 Preview network install using defaults
2. Insert a memory stick into the card reader
3. Wait for the icon to appear on the desktop
  
Actual results:
No icon appeared


Expected results:
Icon for MS should have appeared so I could navigate the filesystem on it.

Please pick a meaningful component instead of "0xFFFF" which is a piece of software having absolutely nothing to do with your problem! Reassigning.

Yes, I apologize for that. Though I didn't pick 0xFFFF. I didn't pick anything as I have no idea whatsoever which component is responsible. Should am-utils have been selected for installation automatically? Which component decides that? When I asked about it in the fedora emai list, I was told am-utils shouldn't be required and that I should open a bug... this is it. I reported what I know.

Feel free to close the bug as "insufficient data provided". My feelings won't be hurt. :-)

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

Yes, Fedora 11 wasn't an option when I reported the bug. I found it after installing the Preview release a couple of weeks ago.

I did a clean install of Fedora 11 today and did not have this problem, so I recommend this bug be closed.
