    kde removable device problem


    hy
    Im using arch with kde 4.6. after updating the system and starting to use udev instead of hal for hotplugging in kde i have this hairpulling problem:

    I have two hard drives. one for linux and an extra one. the extra one has 3 ntfs partitions which i dont usually mount. I used to see all the 3 partitions in kde's "removable devices" and in "places" but now, after the update only two partitions are shown.

    I can manually mount the third partition and access data so the partition is fine.
    I can see the third partition under /dev and in dmesg, so i guess udev is fine.

    I want to be able to see the third partition in "places" and in" removable devices" so I can easily mount it with a single click.

    pleeeeeaase help, I realy am pulling my hair

    New software, new bugs...

    Sorry, can't help with this. I'm just getting to understand how udev works myself since I recently updated my main workstation to SL6 (RHEL 6).

    Anyway, what is the output of "fdisk -l" on the ntfs drive?

    fdisk -l for the ntfs drive gives the following
    can you see anything interesting ?

    Other than the last partition is an extended one, no. That may be the issue and indicative of a bug in the dynamic mounter or kde. Sorry, but that's about as much as I can surmise from the data available.
