Dolphin on KDE 4.2.1 in 64 bit Fedora 10.


Hi,

Ever since I started using KDE as in 4.2, I have been doing this regularly. When I startup KDE, I open Dolphin and click and mount each partition with root pass. I thought it might be some KDE issue as is the ever developing code and will be fine in future updates. But now I'm in 4.2.1 and it still exists. Upon inquiring fellow users on other distros, I have come to believe this is a *Fedora only* issue now.

Anybody got any ideas? Thanks.

Why aren't your partitions automatically mounted from /etc/fstab when you boot? You shouldn't need to use Dolphin to mount a drive partition. Here's what my laptop's Fedora /etc/fstab looks like:
Code:
$ cat /Fedora/etc/fstab
#                                      
# /etc/fstab                           
# Created by anaconda on Thu Nov 27 09:31:54 2008
#                                                
# Accessible filesystems, by reference, are maintained under '/dev/disk'
# See man pages fstab(5), findfs(8), mount(8) and/or vol_id(8) for more info

Note that drive and partition UUID can be seen in, e.g., ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid

Oh, the ufsd driver I'm using for the Vista NTFS partitions is a beta driver I've been testing. If you've got NTFS partitions, ntfs-3g is probably a better choice for now.

No lol, what I mean is, I don't have any partition entries in fstab like in the old days. When I used Gnome, it used to get auto mounted using HAL, bus, etc ... Since the switch to KDE, I have to do it manually as said above.

So I wish it would be auto mounted already by the time I hit Dolphin.

Check /bin/mount and, if necessary, do a chmod +sx /bin/mount as "root" to turn on the "set UID" and executable flags for everyone. I needed to do that on my Fedora system before Dolphin could mount even a CD. You could also install nautilus and use it in KDE to see if it works any differently.

But, if you use the Dolphin auto-mount feature, you have little control over the names used when the device (or partition) is mounted which can complicate any scripts you write.

But, hey, it's your system, so you can set it up any way you wish.

All those things are fine, Dolphin mounts the CD and all, only the auto-mounting of partitions is what bugs me.

It has got something to do with KDE and the d-bus, etc things. I opened up Nautilus here in KDE and it didn't had them mounted too. If KDE mounts it, then regardless of the file managers, they will all show mounted.

On the other hand, if I get into Gnome once initially and then log off and head in KDE, Dolphin has them all mounted. That should make it clear on my side of things.
