mount -t auto dows not work for usb disk
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:47:27 EDT
Description of Problem:
I have a Maxtor 80GB usb disk on which I allocated a single partition and
formatted it ext2.
I can mount my other ide partitions using -t auto or leaving this off entirely.
However, for the usb disk, I must specify -t ext2 to have it mounted properly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. attach a usb disk
2. mount it without the filesystem type being specified
Make sure you are specifying the partition with the ext2 filesystem, and not the whole disk.
Otherwise, it's known to work for someone here...
Mmmm ... works for me now too but this is with 8.0 plus all current errata.
Given when this was reported, that was a very different system (kernel, etc.).
It may not have worked then (or it may have been an operator error) but it works
