Description Charlie Brady 2011-07-21 18:17:29 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #227593 +++

Description of problem:

It is not completely reproducible, but in general when I add an usb
key, mount the key (using pmount, not through hal), remove the key 
without unmounting, hal becomes confused and don't see that the usb
key was removed. It is still confused after umounting as root the 

It seems to go much more smoothly when gnome-mount
is used to mount and umount -- even on a device that isn't connected

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

The version before hal-, maybe hal-
I'll retest with last version.

Something like this patch;a=commitdiff;h=f5b862f5690106bb3d5500b1091d12f089bae070;hp=193b7bbb91cb56d5fa5e87e90382449a023b6915

should fix it. It was a pretty obvious mistake in HAL. This will hit Rawhide as
soon as I upload a new release so I'm closing this UPSTREAM. Feel free to reopen
if it doesn't fix it for you. Thanks.

This problem fixed in Fedora in 2007 is still biting in 2011! Fix is simple.

Comment 5 Andrius Benokraitis 2013-10-15 19:24:06 UTC
No additional minor releases are planned for Production Phase 2 in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, and therefore Red Hat is closing this bugzilla as it does not meet the inclusion criteria as stated in:
