Description Traxtopel 2009-06-17 05:16:27 EDT
Description of problem:
Not sure if this is a bug or working as designed.
In fedora 10 if I plugged a usb key in my machine it would auto mount using the label i.e.

In fedora 11 it mounts using the UUID.

Is this how it should be?

try tune2fs

like, tune2fs -L myDisk /dev/sdb1

make sure /dev/sdb1 is really the
address of the usb disk

this will probably only work if
the fs on the USB is ext3 or ext4

anyway, see the man page for tune2fs

Have you tried the information in comment 2?  If so please try the latest hal package in Fedora 11 or Rawhide. In either case, can you let us know whether the issue is still happening, and give the current version of the HAL packages you're using?

Comment 3 Traxtopel 2009-09-10 03:09:18 EDT
So adding the label works, I guess this can be closed, thanks.
Comment 4 Scott Glaser 2009-09-10 05:14:10 EDT
Based on the information in comment 3 I am closing this bug, should you
experience these symptoms again please file a new bug report against the
applicable component.  Thanks for the input.
