Hey, I'm a bit of a newb, but I've been using Fedora for about 4 months as my main system's OS, so I'm not totally in the dark.
I have a problem where I can't seem to mount USB devices automagically. I have my old Fedora build (also FC6) on an 5 GB drive that's slaved and still in the machine.
When I boot up to that, and plug in my Flash drive and my Sansa m240, they pop right up. Icons on the desktop, they're listed in places, you can open the flash drive and it comes up correctly... all works the way it seems it should by default.
However, on my 160GB drive with my main load, I can mount them manually, but they don't just automatically pop up when I plug them in.
A check to /media/.hal-mtab on each machine reveals pretty much the same.
5GB drive - /dev/sda1 and /dev/sdb1 are both listed and mapped to /media/*** directories.
160GB drive - nada, nothing, blank.
fstab on both machines looks about the same, neither lists the fd0 or usb devices, as expected.
I installed hal-gnome and it does list both the flash drive and the sansa, plugged in under the UHCI USB 1.1 controller.
Soooooo.... any idea how I get from point a to point b?
