My external USB disk and flash memory used to be automatically detected
and mounted with icons appearing on the desktop. Now this behaviour has
suddenly stopped. I'm not sure what daemon enables this functionality
(newbie) but my guess was that this had to do with the "hal" package and
daemon. Using "rpm -q hal" showed that I had two versions installed
(can't explain why), and so I removed the older version, in case they
were conflicting, but the problem remain unresolved. Could someone tell
me how to re-enable the auto-discovery of devices in FC3?
