Description Fryderyk Dziarmagowski 2009-05-18 09:56:34 UTC
After upgrading 0.5.11 -> 0.5.12 I'm no longer able to mount CD/DVD using gvfs-mount or exo-mount. dmesg says:

hal-storage-mou[3830]: segfault at 0 ip 0804a7ba sp bfe188b0 error 4 in hal-storage-mount[8048000+6000]

exo-mount and gvfs-mount are very cryptic about it:
% exo-mount -n --device /dev/sr0
An unknown error occured.

% gvfs-mount -i -d /dev/sr0
Error mounting /dev/sr0: You are not supposed to show G_IO_ERROR_FAILED_HANDLED in the UI

Unfortunately hal-storage-mount is being spawned from hald and I can't do a gdb trace on it. Is there is a way to do this? Or maybe there is another way to obtain useful info?

OS details (custom distro)
udev 142
hal 0.5.12 (CK/PK enabled, vanilla hal with removed dell killswitch)

seems to be related to blkid changes. 0.5.11 with blkid patch (from git) crashes exacly same way.
