ZIp drive mounted twice after updates on MDK 10

Installed 10
then went to install updates - installed KDE* updates and know I have 2 zip drive icons on the desktop

fstab is as follows

/dev/hda1 / ext3 defaults 1 1
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0
/dev/hda6 /home ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/hdb /mnt/cdrom auto umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec 0 0
/dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom2 auto umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec 0 0

Well, do you have two zip drives?

If not, do the contents of an inserted disk show up in /mnt/zip or /mnt/zip2?

If it only shows up in one of those, delete the other line from fstab. If it shows up in both, delete the /mnt/zip2 line.

Have only one zip drive.
Inserted disk data appears with both icons.
Have tried deleating /mnt/zip2, reboot and it shows up again when you use the zip drive again.

Has this issue been solved?

I'm having the same problems. I've tried editing the fstab without any luck.

I have the same, and more.

I have a single zip drive and two hard disks; these are set in my system to be hdb, hdc and hde respectively.

These were mounted like this in my fstab:

none /mnt/zip supermount dev=/dev/hdb4 ....
/dev/hdc1 /data1 ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/hde6 / ext3 defaults 1 1

Since I upgraded to 10.0 official from 9.2 I have the following two extra entries in my fstab

none /mnt/hd supermount dev=/dev/ide/host0/bus1/target0/lun0/part1 ...
none /mnt/zip2 supermount dev=/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target1/lun0/part4 ...

This is a bit odd, because /dev/hdc1 is a link to /dev/ide/host0/bus1/target0/lun0/part1, and /dev/hdb4 is a link to /dev/ide/host0/bus0/target1/lun0/part4 - so my hdc and zip drives are being added to the fstab file twice.

It looks like this is being done via drakupdate_fstab on boot, because the entries are restored at boot if I delete them.

Is something going wrong with devfs here?

When i updated from 8.2 to 9.2 using oe MDK i had the same problem :

ie two cd-rom icons and two floppy icons !!

i think the problem comes when you try to update mdk distro.

I removed 8.2 and properly install 9.2 and get rid of the double icons ( they were imposible to remove anyway )

I have solved this problem to my own satisfaction by hacking the file /etc/dynamic/scripts/part.script

After the lines:

# try to catch calls from rc.sysinit
case `runlevel` in
unknown) exit 0;;

I inserted the following four lines:

case $2 in
/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target1/lun0/part4) exit 1;;
/dev/ide/host0/bus1/target0/lun0/part1) exit 1;;

This causes the script to return quietly if trying to add either of the two devices that I did not want added.

Of course I had to remove the lines for these devices in my /etc/fstab as well before rebooting to test.

A nasty hack of course, but I lacked anything better...
