Description Xtian Simon 2011-08-05 00:18:02 UTC
Description of problem:
Dolphin, Thunar (and Nautilus) File Managers do not automount HFS+ DVDs in new install of Fedora 15 i386/i686.

The problem originated in this bug report,
"Bug 720771 - HFSPlus DVD will not mount post install"
where the problem was solved.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Using Buildsystem Kernel fix


How reproducible:
Inserted HFS+ DVD does not appear in Dolphin or Thunar File Managers after successful implementation of above bug fix. Before Bug fix 720771, Fedora 15 would fail to mount HFS+ DVDs (and apparently other HDD) in XWindows or via $mount. Now HFS+ only mountable via $mount.

Steps to Reproduce:
After installing the above RPM fixes, checking the below parameters in XFCE, and restarting, a mounted HFS+ DVD is not visible in the file manager.

Settings I've checked:
Xfce > Applications Menu > Preferences > Removable Drives & Media 
- Mount ... when hot plugged 
- Mount ... when inserted 
- Browse ... when  inserted

Xfce > Applications Menu > Preferences > File Manager 
+ [Advanced]
|- Enable volume management (?)
Actual results:
HFS+ DVD does not mount.

Expected results:
HFS+ DVD should appear in Dolphin or Thunar

Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2012-08-07 16:13:13 UTC
This message is a notice that Fedora 15 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 15. 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Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained.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 '15' 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 15 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:
