Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 727836
Failed mount after sw upgrade.
Last modified: 2012-08-16 08:03:30 EDT
Description of problem:
After one of the upgrades on F14 on June the 12th, ALL mounting of devices but the primary ext4 failed. Really pissed off due to this, did not expect at all. I understand some security features would fail, but this...
Seems like someone copied his/her/its machine settings, and it all went - 4 different ext4 and 1 fat. They are still there, but cannot seem to mount them, dc and floppy alike. USB workx.
Worked on it (in /etc/fstab and added automount), but seems, that would not be able to do it so easily retrievable. I am not so proficient with UNIX right now.
Miss some creature comfort regarding that. Might be available on ubuntu, but do not feel like too much distro surfing right now. If someone has an idea... Regards.

This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached 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, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
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:
