View Full Version : Unmount permanently

6th April 2009, 05:09 PM

Yeah it sound rare, but I have mount another OS partition in my fedora to transfer files. Nothing out of order, but when I restart my session it mount automatically even if I have unmount it before exiting...

There should be a file in my home directory that makes this, but which one?:confused:

I want not to mount automatically when starting my session...

Check your /etc/fstab
Maybe comment out the line with that device on it.

I don't find it, no ntfs?

Extra: it mount on /media/disk

Run fdisk -l and post it.

Here it goes:

fdisk -l

I see...
You can delete the folder "/media/disk" or maybe a .*fstab file in the media folder that has "/media/disk" in it.

You might look at this thread also

Navigate to STORAGE
1) Mount file systems from internal drives. Select user (you) click Revoke

For the Record:
By default on my system is:
Anyone: No
Console: No
Active Console: Admin Authentication (keep indefinitely)
Explicit Authentication:
This may have fixed your configuration; but it would seem this is the default for most systems.
So clicking on Reset to Defaults and revoking any users would have just set this back to system default.
Maybe this has changed in F10 and was carried over from previous versions.
