Description Gene Czarcinski 2002-10-10 10:59:25 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):

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. attach a usb disk
2. mount it without the filesystem type being specified

Actual Results:

Expected Results:

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...
Comment 2 Gene Czarcinski 2003-01-14 14:38:28 EST
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
