Auto-mount , I presume works for root user only.
On Mageia 1 if I open the file manager to view a different partition of Mandriva in this case ,the home directory is owned by root (according to the file permissions) so I can't easily view my documents from this O.S. Fedora partitions on the same drive are not like this. Is there a easy fix so I don't have to unmount and then put in the long partition file name in the terminal?
Thanks in advance!
I just discovered that...
The Icons that Gnome 2 puts on the desktop does indeed include one that is labeled 'New Volume' that is infact the the other mandrake fork install partition and it does allow a non root user to open the home directory. I thought 'New Volume' was my usb drive. If you use the menus to open it or the 'computer' icon Mageia/ Mandriva will not allow you to open the home directory of the other.
Thanks for the help though and the tips on the commands!
