I've been searching everywhere in order to get 3 partitions to show up on the Gnome desktop (as icons/drives). I've search everywhere and seemed to have tried everything. Pulling my hair out, hoping someone can help. I'm running Gnome 2.16 and FC6 off fresh install. I'm new to Fedora, but savvy.
Here's my Fdisk -l
I created 3 folders within /media as follows
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hdc1 * 1 4177 33551721 c W95 FAT32 (LBA)
/dev/hdc2 4178 8354 33551752+ c W95 FAT32 (LBA)
/dev/hdc3 8355 12531 33551752+ c W95 FAT32 (LBA)
/dev/hdc4 12532 30401 143540775 7 HPFS/NTFS
My fstab file has the following added to it:
[root@media]# ls -g
drwxrwxrwx 2 root 4096 Oct 29 20:57 vol1
drwxrwxrwx 2 root 4096 Oct 29 20:57 vol2
drwxrwxrwx 2 root 4096 Oct 29 20:57 vol3
I've also just tried this in fstab, with no luck
/dev/hdc1 /media/vol1 auto auto,rw,showexec,quiet,umask=000 0 0
/dev/hdc2 /media/vol2 auto auto,rw,showexec,quiet,umask=000 0 0
/dev/hdc3 /media/vol3 auto auto,rw,showexec,quiet,umask=000 0 0
/dev/hdc1 /media/vol1 vfat umask=000 0 0
/dev/hdc2 /media/vol2 vfat umask=000 0 0
/dev/hdc3 /media/vol3 vfat umask=000 0 0
I can access the volumes just fine when I browse to the folders within the /media directory, but I want access to them directly from "Computer", or from the Desktop. (and not as a "folder" on the desktop).
Would this maybe not work for me because I'm running Compiz and the GLX Eye-Candy stuff? I don't know why I think this, but it is something I did change after the default install. (btw - i highly recommend it - freaking killer
I tried doing this both from /media and from /mnt, with no luck. (one post that I found suggested that it had to be in the /media folder for it to show up on the desktop.)
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
