I've already stopped writing bug reports against Fedora - I've concluded 
their requirement that the submitter describe "how to reproduce the bug" 
is to me not worth my time and effort.  Fedora is *their* product - what 
does it matter to me whether it retains bugs ?

You would like "all the information needed".  I thought I posted to the 
effect that when an XO-1 with 12.1.0 build os6 is booted, nothing gets 
defined in the /dev tree against which a 'mount' command could be issued 
in order to access the content of a partition on the SD card plugged 
into the XO-1 external slot (beneath the screen).  It is not clear to me 
what the "we need detailed reports" are that would allow you to discover 
whether such a problem exists on the XO-1 you use.

Note that for my purposes I was able to bypass this problem.  What I was 
not able to ignore was the os6 (on XO-1) reaction to having an entry in 
/etc/fstab referencing this undefined (on os6) storage device.  But I 
agree that having such an entry in /etc/fstab is "non-standard" -- from 
now on, I will make sure to NEVER for 12.1.0 to mention any problems I 
have with whatever I do that is "non-standard".
