Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 963550
gnome-disks is missing "Safely Remove Drive"
Last modified: 2014-02-05 16:23:56 EST
Description of problem:
The button "Safely Remove Drive" is missing in the gnome-disks application (from gnome-disk-utility package).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mount any partition on an external hdd.
2. Open gnome-disks
You can unmount partition but you can't power off the hdd.
Should be a possibility to power off the external hdd.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
I saw this with F18. I clean installed F19 when it came out. Now I generally have to unmount several times because it tends to automatically remount. But when it finally does unmount for good, it automatically powers off. I have gnome-disk-utility-3.8.2-1.fc19.x86_64.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 18 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 18. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '18'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be
able to fix it before Fedora 18 is 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 change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.
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.
Fedora 18 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2014-01-14. Fedora 18 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
