I updated my f16 system today, and when I needed to mount a vfat partition (my brother's mp4 player), nautilus complained it can't find mount.vfat.

It worked yesterday...

yum provides *vfat* found nothing, which is really odd.

Which package provides mount.vfat? Why did it disappear in a regular update? Which component should I file the bug under.

try using the "-t" switch. An example would be as:

mount -t vfat /dev/<mp4 player device> /directory/to/mount -o loop

I test it and :

mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/home/
df -T

/dev/sdb1 vfat 1955520 1823712 131808 94% /mnt/home

So I guess we don't need anymore mount.vfat
