Gnome: Need Help With Mounting Links


I was using a debian testing instalation with windows, and therefore i had NTFS partitions mounted in debian (with /etc/fstab) in the /media directory. Gnome linked this partitions on the desktop and nautilius as if it was a disk inserted.

Now i upgrade to unstable and gnome turned to 2.10. The linking thing wont work anymore.
What should i do?

Thanks in Adnvance

Check whether the link you are pointing to is already mounting by fstab.

Check whether the path still exists in your /etc/fstab file to the partitions that you have mounted previously.
Maybe the Gnome Upgrade has modified your fstab.

Thanks for your reply. I allready checked the fstab and it is ok. I also tried to umount and mount again. Nothing happends. Could it be a gnome configuration?
