Description Nico R. 2007-04-13 06:54:56 UTC
When I plug in/power on an external USB hard disk with two partitions, they often both get mounted on /media/disk (the second one on top of the first one). *Sometimes* I get /media/disk and /media/disk-1 instead (that's what should always happen).

I suspect a race condition in /usr/share/hal/scripts/hal-system-storage-mount around line 175 when determining the mount point for the partition that has become available.

My system is currently using sys-apps/hal-

Unmask hal 0.5.9 and test.
Comment 2 Nico R. 2007-06-21 06:52:19 UTC
Seems to work with sys-apps/hal-0.5.9-r1.
