Description Vassilios Kotoulas 2005-09-15 20:32:00 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050909 Fedora/1.0.6-1.2.fc4 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
I have a partition which I don't want to be mounted automatically. Here's the line of my /etc/fstab:
/dev/hda3  /mnt/hda3  ext3  noauto,user  1 0
gnome-volume-properties is configured to automount removable media and hotplugged drives but it mounts hda3 too. It is not mounted on boot or in runlevel 3.
It seems that the hard disk partition is treated as removable media or it ignores the noauto option in fstab. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. have a HD partition of an internal IDE drive in /etc/fstab with the noauto option
2. gnome-volume-properties is configured not to mount removable media when inserted
3. login to gnome-desktop, hda3 is not mounted
4. configure gnome-volume-properties to mount removable media when inserted
5. logout
6. login to gnome desktop

Actual Results:  hda3 is mounted

Expected Results:  hda3 is not mounted

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Comment 2 Vassilios Kotoulas 2007-01-22 11:35:52 EST
the problem has gone away with fc5
