Re: USB thumb drive questio

1.   To check and start and stop automount:  system-> administration -> services -> autofs

2.  Are you running the strict selinux?  If so (anyone) doesn't that have everything locked down like this? 

3.  No comprendo regarding the FC3 reference.  A lot of things mounted automatically around that time.  SELinux didn't enter my world anyway until recently.

4.  Maybe as a test, you could disable SELinux and see if you can get it to automount.  If you can, then at least you know what's interfering.  Since you tried two thumbdrives that tends to validate selinux as a possible culprit. 

5.  It doesn't sound like there is anything physically wrong with the disk since you have the same problem with 2 usb thumb/pen type drives.  For TS purposes only I would recommend temporarily removing all other usb devices until you can get this handled.

How to check it?  Tks.

# mount /dev/hda /mnt
mount: special device /dev/hda does not exist
# mount /dev/hdb /mnt
mount: special device /dev/hdb does not exist
# mount /dev/hdc /mnt
mount: No medium found

# umount /mnt/
umount: /mnt/: not mounted

only a wireless device for the wireless mouse.

No, I tried 2 thumb drives.  They can be mounted automatically on FC3.
