Hi folks,

FC5_64

Previously whenever a pendrive was plugged in, it can be detected and mounted automatically. Starting Konqueror, files can be retrieved but can't be saved on the pendrive. Unless umount the pendrive and remount it on Konsole as root, then files can be retrieved and saved on it on Konqueror (started as root).

$ cat /etc/fstab
Code:
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 /                       ext3    defaults        1 1
LABEL=/boot             /boot                   ext3    defaults        1 2
devpts                  /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
tmpfs                   /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 /home                   ext3    defaults        1 2
proc                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
sysfs                   /sys                    sysfs   defaults        0 0
#/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol02 /tmp                    ext3    defaults        1 2
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol03 swap                    swap    defaults        0 0

I need to save files on pendrive then I took following steps;

edited /etc/sudoers on kedit adding following line on it
Code:
satimis ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: mount /dev/sda1 /media/usb
and created
Code:
# mkdir /media/usb
On running;
$ sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/usb

A warning popup. Unfortunately I haven't taken it down. From that time onwards pendrives plugged in can't detected and mounted automatically anymore, except the pendrive used for above test.

On Knosole
# fdisk -l
could not detect the pendrive but can detect the pendrive for test.

# fdisk -l
Code:
....
.....
Disk /dev/sdb: 127 MB, 127139840 bytes
4 heads, 61 sectors/track, 1017 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 244 * 512 = 124928 bytes

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdb1               1        1017      124043+  83  Linux
This pendrive has only a single partition using the complete space, 128M.

On booting the abovementioned warning scrolled on screen but I can't take it down because moving too swiftly.

I tried reading /var/log/bootlog, message, etc. and could not discover it.

# ls /var/log
Code:
anaconda.log     cron    lastlog    messages.1                   rpmpkgs.1         secure.3   Xorg.0.log
anaconda.syslog  cron.1  mail       messages.2                   rpmpkgs.2         spooler    Xorg.0.log.old
anaconda.xlog    cron.2  maillog    messages.3                   rpmpkgs.3         spooler.1  Xorg.setup.log
boot.log         cron.3  maillog.1  nvidia-installer.log         samba             spooler.2  yum.log
boot.log.1       cups    maillog.2  nvidia-nforce-installer.log  scrollkeeper.log  spooler.3
boot.log.2       dmesg   maillog.3  ppp                          secure            vbox
boot.log.3       gdm     mcelog     prelink.log                  secure.1          wtmp
btmp             httpd   messages   rpmpkgs                      secure.2          wtmp.1
Pleae advise which file holds the scrolling message at booting and how to fix the problem. TIA
