Description of problem:
On a i386 workstation under Fedora Core 4 with a Maxoptix T5-2600 magnetic optical drive
attached to an Adaptec AHA-7850 scsi controller, lshal doesn't report any information on the
Maxoptix drive. This appears to prevent the gnome volume manager from automatically adding
an entry to the fstab and automount optical media when inserted into the drive. The device appears
in the scsi proc entry as...

cat /proc/scsi/scsi
Host: scsi3 Channel: 00 Id: 06 Lun: 00
  Vendor: Maxoptix Model: T5-2600          Rev: A6.9
  Type:   Optical Device                   ANSI SCSI revision: 02

I am able to use this device currently by adding...

BUS=="scsi", SYSFS{vendor}=="Maxoptix", NAME{all_partitions}="maxoptix" /etc/udev/rules.d/10-local.rules and adding...

/dev/maxoptix8          /media/optical          xfs     noauto,rw,pamconsole  0 

This allows me to mount legacy XFS format optical disks from Irix under Fedora Core 4 by
double clicking the optical icon in Nautilus or using the usermount program. It would be nicer
if I could expect the optical media to automount on insertion like cdrom and cdrecorder devices
do. Also from my understanding of hal and the gnome volume manager, it should be able to
detect XFS formatted media and mount it, right?

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora Core 4 on a i386 workstation with a scsi controller
2. Attach a Maxoptix optical drive such as the T5-2600
3. Reboot with the Maxoptix optical drive powered on and execute "lshal | grep Maxoptix"

Actual Results:  I saw no entries for the Maxoptix drive despite it showing up in /proc/scsi/scsi and being usable when 
manually configured as described above.

Expected Results:  lshal should have reported an entry for the Maxoptix optical drive and when I inserted XFS format optical 
media into the drive, it should have been automatically mounted on the Gnome Desktop by the Gnome 
Volume Manager without the need to modify the fstab and udev local.rules manually.

I should mention that fixing this bug will make the transition easier for folks moving off of Irix to Linux.

Comment 2 Christian Iseli 2007-01-20 00:21:36 UTC
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?


Comment 3 petrosyan 2008-02-19 02:33:52 UTC
Fedora Core 4 is no longer maintained.

Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the
current Fedora release, please reopen this bug and assign it to the
corresponding Fedora version.
