To exvor: Thanks for replying. fdisk -l just shows 1 partition correctly as it always has been.
Something else I've found: I cannot right click the icon and unmount/eject/safely remove. Regardless of which of those options are listed when I right click, it won't allow me to do it. It complains "/media/usb0 is not in fstab and you are not root." Well there's not much in fstab, but here it is:
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc nodev,noexec,nosuid 0 0
/dev/sda5 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
# /home was on /dev/sda10 during installation
UUID=e...6 /home ext4 defaults 0 2
/dev/sda6 /tmp ext4 defaults 0 2
# /usr was on /dev/sda8 during installation
UUID=0...0 /usr ext4 defaults 0 2
/dev/sda7 /var ext4 defaults 0 2
# swap was on /dev/sda9 during installation
UUID=0...1 none swap sw 0 0
I partitioned the disk at install time with (if I remember correctly)
In the folder browsing window (not Konqueor or Dolphin), it lists the correct volume name for my USB flash drive, yet doesn't show that it's mounted. But it does show that the usb0 is mounted. Furthermore, when I right click on the volume name, select "Eject" or "Safely remove", it says, "Unable to eject volname, One or more partitions are busy on /dev/sdb" Strangely enough the "Mount" option is listed on the context menu even though it is mounted at /media/usb0.
Disk Utility in the LM10 menu (is this gnome-disk-utility?) also reports only 1 partition. In the Disk Util, I was able to select "Unmount" and that worked, but selecting "Safely remove" gave the same "unable umount..busy" error. Also, I can umount -f and it will unmount.
First of all, is is OK to create directories in /media? I seem to remember reading on the Solaris forum that you shouldn't do that. Secondly, does this sound like my installation of linux has been into the catnip and is totally stoned? (sorry, I couldn't resist).
