Re: GUI root login and NTFS mounts?

And I don’t want them all mounted either.

I found the following resolved the problem for me (from an oldish thread):

maybe related to this
https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-test-list/2008-May/msg00935.html

IIRC (?)


Old stuff:

Fedora 7 has a file called
/usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/99-redhat-storage-policy-fixed-drives.fdi
to prevent this from happening, here's its contents:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!-- -*- SGML -*- -->

<deviceinfo version="0.2">
<device>
  <match key="@block.storage_device:storage.hotpluggable" bool="false">
    <match key="@block.storage_device:storage.removable" bool="false">
      <merge key="volume.ignore" type="bool">true</merge>
    </match>
  </match>
</device>
</deviceinfo>

If that file is no longer there in Fedora 8, try adding it and see if
that helps.
