Description Michal Jaegermann 2005-05-07 19:09:57 UTC
Description of problem: Attaching a USB floppy drive without a media give in 'dmesg': usb 5-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 6 scsi6 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices usb-storage: device found at 6 usb-storage: waiting for device to settle before scanning Vendor: SONY Model: USB-FDU Rev: 5.01 Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 00 Attached scsi removable disk sdc at scsi6, channel 0, id 0, lun 0 usb-storage: device scan complete and that is it. Adding or ejecting media will not show any other activity anywhere. When plugging a USB floppy drive with a floppy in it a picture is somewhat different: usb 5-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 7 scsi7 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices usb-storage: device found at 7 usb-storage: waiting for device to settle before scanning Vendor: SONY Model: USB-FDU Rev: 5.01 Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 00 SCSI device sdc: 1440 512-byte hdwr sectors (1 MB) sdc: Write Protect is on sdc: Mode Sense: 00 46 1e 80 sdc: assuming drive cache: write through SCSI device sdc: 1440 512-byte hdwr sectors (1 MB) sdc: Write Protect is on sdc: Mode Sense: 00 46 1e 80 sdc: assuming drive cache: write through sdc: unknown partition table Attached scsi removable disk sdc at scsi7, channel 0, id 0, lun 0 usb-storage: device scan complete Still no changes in /etc/fstab though. There will be an entry if I am __booting__ with a USB floppy driver already attached and with an inserted media but this does not mean at all that it will be mounted in any moment. After I got "sdc: unknown partition table" I can mount that floppy without any trouble with mount -r -t vfat /dev/sdc /some/mount/point and read it from a command line or via nautilus. On the top of it my older policy file in /usr/share/hal/fdi/95userpolicy which says: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?> <!-- -*- SGML -*- --> <!-- Use 'usbfloppy' for USB floppy drives --> <deviceinfo version="0.2"> <device> <match key="storage.bus" string="usb"> <match key="storage.drive_type" string="floppy"> <merge key="storage.policy.desired_mount_point" type="string">usbfloppy</merge> </match> </match> </device> </deviceinfo> which is not that surprising because 'lshal' shows for 'USB-FDU' a string 'disk' for storage.drive_type and is totally numb about desired_mount_point. This is a sharp regress in a comparison with an older situation where all of the above used to work (including a capability to specify some sane mountpoint which does not jump around). Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): hal-0.5.1-1 How reproducible: always
Comment 1 Michal Jaegermann 2005-05-07 19:13:34 UTC
Err, in the original report a corresponding fragment should reaad: " ... my older policy file .... does not work anymore ...". Editing through a bugzilla peephole is not that effective.
Comment 2 David Zeuthen 2005-05-07 20:03:52 UTC
On what kernel does this happen, try one that is pre 2.6.12-rc3 (this one looks like a duplicate of bug 156167). Also, please try to attach the output of lshal. I've also changed version from 'fc3' to 'devel' since hal 0.5.1 is not in fc3.
Comment 3 Michal Jaegermann 2005-05-07 20:47:42 UTC
Created attachment 114129 [details] a full output from lshal with 'USB-FDU' attached > I've also changed version from 'fc3' to 'devel' since hal 0.5.1 is > not in fc3. Sorry, this was supposed to be devel and not fc3. I forgot to switch distribution tag. > On what kernel does this happen, At least on these: 2.6.11-1.1287_FC4 2.6.11-1.1286_FC4 2.6.11-1.1284_FC4 > try one that is pre 2.6.12-rc3 Hm, I do not have a supply of kernels going that far back. > (this one looks like a duplicate of bug 156167). Possibly, although not recognized floppy device may, or may not, be the same thing. > Also, please try to attach the output of lshal. OK. 'lsusb' does recognize the device properly.
Comment 4 Michal Jaegermann 2005-05-07 20:51:10 UTC
Created attachment 114130 [details] an outptut from lsusb for 'USB-FDU' I was not paying attention and added these two attachments to bug 156167 too.
Comment 5 David Zeuthen 2005-05-07 20:59:11 UTC
oh, ok, but you could add the output of lshal instead of lsusb?
Comment 6 David Zeuthen 2005-05-07 22:04:38 UTC
Ah, ok, I see the output of lshal in comment 3. As visible it says storage.bus = 'scsi', not storage.bus = 'usb'. This happens because the scsi host interface event is before the USB interface events (even though the former references the latter). Thus, duplicate of bug 156167. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 156167 ***
