User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake HAL in Mandriva 2006 doesn't correctly handle card readers advertising themselves as SCSI removable disk, which was preventing HAL from correctly creating entries in fstab when the user inserts a memory card. Updated packages have been patched to address this issue.
