Description David Balažic 2005-04-22 14:14:04 UTC
Description of problem:
I have a FC4test2 default install.

I logged in as plain user (to GNOME), selected menu : Desktop / Preferences /
Removable Drives and Media

I get an error dialog :
Volume management not supported

The "hald" service is required but not currently running. Enable the service and
rerun this applet, or contact your system administrator.

root      4067  3980  0 19:50 pts/3    00:00:00 grep hal

# service haldaemon status
hald is stopped

I have udev-057-1, the rest standard FC4t2, as on the official DVD.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
After a reboot, the problem did not reappear (hald was running correctly). Did
not try more than once.

Well, if you can't reproduce this or otherwise provide more useful about what is
wrong, there is no way I can fix this. To submit good bug reports please see
