Description Mark 2006-11-02 17:07:28 EST
Description of problem:
i`ve mounted 2 partitions in fstab and they aren`t showing up un the computer
window (that window where you also have: Floppy Drive, Filesystem, CD-RW/DVD-RW
and Network)

The partitions i try to mount are 2 windows NTFS partitions and i can just
access them when i go to the folders.. so the mount itself is going fine. i
tried it with ntfs-3g and the default mount stuff but without any luck. i tried
the following mount options:

defaults
defaults,user
defaults,auto
and serveral oter  LONG options that i found on a forum somewhere.

In the gconf-editor settings the value:
apps-->nautilus-->desktop-->volumes_visible is turned on!

All this stuff is tested on Fedora Core 6 with the latest patches and updates
installed.

Any solution for this?

David, what do you have to do these days to get this to work?
Comment 2 Steve 2007-01-21 06:58:43 EST
i've the same thing here but only on one machine (both are fc6). all
ssh-connections (mappings) are shown but no cifs!
Comment 3 Steve 2007-03-17 08:55:30 EDT
is there any solution?
Comment 4 Mark 2007-03-19 09:38:43 EDT
OMG is this still a open bug.
is this bug reporting stuff even usefull if bugs don`t get solved.

anyway i FIXED it myself
you have to delete this file:
/usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/99-redhat-storage-policy-fixed-drives.fdi
(if it`s not there locate "99-redhat-storage-policy-fixed-drives.fdi" it and
delete it)

i will open up a discussion about this partition stuff on the fedora-devel-list
because i seriously hope that this BUG will be gone in FC7 and as of this moment
it`s still present.
Comment 5 Steve 2007-03-19 10:36:49 EDT
this does still not work for me. i deleted that file and made a rebot. is there
any other way?

This is not a bug, this behaviour is intended. Only user-mountable devices are
shown. If a filesystem is mounted fixed, it is regarded as part of the root
filesystem. You can always create a link on your desktop to access some part in
the filesystem more quickly.

i have many fedora's with the same, in fstab, mounted shares, but only by one
machine this happens. how can it be?

Comment 8 Steve 2007-03-19 11:40:46 EDT
here is my fstab entry:

//192.168.100.1/1   /mnt/1      cifs   
username=xxx,password=xxx,uid=user,gid=user,dir_mode=0755,file_mode=0644  0 0
//192.168.100.1/2   /mnt/2      cifs   
username=xxx,password=xxx,uid=user,gid=user,dir_mode=0755,file_mode=0644  0 0
//192.168.100.1/3   /mnt/3      cifs   
username=xxx,password=xxx,uid=user,gid=user,dir_mode=0755,file_mode=0644  0 0
//192.168.100.1/4   /mnt/4      cifs   
username=xxx,password=xxx,uid=user,gid=user,dir_mode=0777,file_mode=0777  0 0

This is intended behavior.

This bug is for tracking partitions from attached hard drives, not about
networked CIFS mounts; I'm unsure how gnome-vfs2 deals with that. 

I'd open a new bug about that; these are just different things.
Comment 12 Steve 2007-03-19 12:20:52 EDT
Understood, thanks!
Comment 13 David Zeuthen 2007-03-19 12:22:15 EDT
I also sent this to fedora-devel-list but it's better to have here in Bugzila

Because the policy right now is to only mount hotpluggable drives and
media from drives that accept removable media. Just think about security
implications if you had read/write access to the password database on a
Windows partition...

i opened this bug and i seem to have closed it also (by accident) so i opened it
again.

i think that partitions should be just vissable when you want it. i`m the only
user on my pc and i simply want to see all the partitions.

Fedora is currently limiting me in that way.
and for:
>  Just think about security
> implications if you had read/write access to the password database on a
> Windows partition...

i`m the only user so i don`t realy want to be limited by those kind of things.
and atleast provide information on how to show the partitions.. cause that`s
extremely difficult to find.
