drives:/ in SuSE 9.1


Hello. I have just changed all my DVD/CD-RW/DVD+/-RW around, and now I have a problem. In the "My Computer" link on the desktop (which points to drives:/), all the drives are messed up. They point to the wrong folder in the /media/ directory. I looked for a way to change where the links point, but couldn't find such a way. Can anyone help? Thanks!

I havn't run SuSE but,

If you have changed the drives around then unmount them and remount them where you want them.

for a cdrom for example
as root
mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom
(just an example)

Your drive config is in the fstab located at /etc/fstab

look at the man pages for mount

man mount

You will have to be root to edit the file.

SuSE automounts everything, i don't think it's a matter of that...

In 2.6 kernel the mount point is changed .. everyone mounts at /media now .. even Debian does it .. so fix accordingly.
/mnt is for hard mounts .. all removable media goes to /media

I restarted SuSE, everything seems to mount and link properly now. Thanks for the suggestions.
