Re: Mount usb drive with mount -a fails after f10 upgrade

Rick,

Yes it exists. It was auto mounting for 3 years with the old OS's
(EL4 and EL5)
using fstab
Different beasties than F10.  EL5 is based on FC6, that's why I asked.
Question: If you try a manual mount, does it work? E.g.:

	# mkdir /mnt/test
	# mount -t ext2 /dev/sdc1 /mnt/test


Rick,

I did that. in fact that is my current workaround is to manually mount it with
mount -t ext2 /dev/sdc1 /media/usbdisk.

Yes EL5 is a different beast. I have two f8 upgraded before the server to f10 workstations and a f10 laptop running on my home network with ldap login and nfs
shared home mounts.  I wanted to go to f10 to get the new user features
 but the
server is giving me these minor problems.

Hmmm, I wonder if the ext2 module has different defaults or if some
Ubuntu-ness (e.g. not setting the clock to UTC before fscking) has crept
into F10 somehow (now that'd be evil!).

If you add "nocheck" to the mount options in /etc/fstab, does it work on
a reboot?

To test for this date thing, you might try deleting the "nocheck" option
in /etc/fstab (if you tried it) and creating an /etc/e2fsck.conf file
containing:

	[options]
	    buggy_init_scripts = true

and try YAR (yet another reboot).

These are just wild guesses.  I'm booting an F10 machine with a couple
of USB drives on it and it works just fine.  Granted, the drives are ext3:

	/dev/sdc1 on /media/500GB-Drive type ext3
	    (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal)
	/dev/sdb1 on /media/CD-DVD-Images type ext3
	    (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal)

and they're not in my /etc/fstab...I'm letting udev/HAL mount them as
this is a workstation running at run level 5 (GUI and all that).
