Hi all
I'm a new member of this forum. :cool:
I have a problem that I hope you'll help me to resolve.
I have Fedora Core 9 installed and working perfectly.
Yesterday I changed the partition table of one of my hard disks.
This is the situation before the change.


/dev/sda1 * 1 61 489951 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 62 808 6000277+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda3 809 3847 24410767+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda4 a partition of ~420 GB with filesystem XFS

In that situation I was able to access the partition from the menu Places with a shortcut tagged My XFS Hard Disk.
Now I have changed the partition table like that,


Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 61 489951 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 62 808 6000277+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda3 809 3847 24410767+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda4 3848 60801 457483005 f W95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/sda5 3848 16901 104856223+ 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda6 16902 56064 314576766 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda7 56065 60801 38049921 7 HPFS/NTFS

.but the shortcut My XFS Hard Disk is still in the Places menu.
No way to remove with right click because is like a static shortcut.

Do you know any way to remove that shortcut from the menu Places?

Try
su -
yum -y install gconf-editor
gconf-editor
Then hunt for nautilus keys related to the item.

ohohooh :D
I found a solution. :cool:

I edited the file /etc/fstab adding this line


UUID=<the UUID of the partition> noauto

Now the shortcut is hidden.
