Description Jay Cliburn 2006-04-11 18:04:19 EDT
Description of problem:
When I insert a movie DVD in my DVD+-RW drive (NEC ND-3520A), gnome-mount mounts
it at /media/{volume.name} and displays a labeled icon on the (KDE) desktop
corresponding to the mounted media.  However, if the following entry is present
in /etc/fstab, the mounted volume shows up on the desktop, but it doesn't show
up at /media/{volume.name}.

/dev/hdc    /media/cdrecorder    udf,iso9660    user,exec,noauto 0 0

Note that the mere presence of the line in /etc/fstab is sufficient to cause the
problem; a "mount /dev/hdc" command doesn't need to have been issued.  If the
line is commented out (or removed from fstab), the DVD mounts properly at

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome-mount 0.4

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Add the referenced line to /etc/fstab
2.  Insert a movie DVD
3.  ls -l /media (and observe the absence of the mounted DVD)
Actual results:
[root@osprey ~]# cat /etc/fstab | grep hdc
/dev/hdc    /media/cdrecorder    udf,iso9660    user,exec,noauto 0 0
[root@osprey ~]# ls -l /media
total 0
**** Comment /dev/hdc in /etc/fstab ****
[root@osprey ~]# cat /etc/fstab | grep hdc
#/dev/hdc    /media/cdrecorder    udf,iso9660    user,exec,noauto 0 0
[root@osprey ~]# ls -l /media
total 2
dr-xr-xr-x 4 4294967295 4294967295 136 Mar 19 15:34 WONDER_YEARS

Expected results:
ls -l /media should show mounted media irrespective of /etc/fstab entry.
