Hi Fedora Folks, over the weekend, i decided to upgrade my fc10 to fc11. it wasnt too painful, it only broke my email and mplayer. however, as i used my sd card to shuttle files to/from my moblin netbook, i had a /etc/fstab entry of the form, ... /dev/sdd1 /media/disk ext3 defaults 0 0 and this bought me the assurance that upon mount, /media/disk/.. is where i'd find my sd card files. now with fc11, this same entry fails to do the job, i get a system generated mount point of the form, ... /dev/sdd1 on /media/c35d465d-bf2b-4c9a-9fd4-5a6e02d8d219 type ext2 (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=devkit) and if i add my fstab entry, i get an error about only root can mount /dev/sdd1 on /media/disk. could someone point me to how to override this behaviour?
With that fstab entry, you should have gotten the same error in F10. You need the user or users option to let a normal user mount an entry in fstab. What it looks like you are getting as a mount point is the uuid of the partation on the SD card. I suspect that the fstab entry was not used in F10, and HAL was using /media/disk as the mount point. Now, if you label the partition, you should get a mount point of /media/<label>. Mikkel
