First of all I apologize for posting this
question here. I posted on the fedora-list but obtained no
satisfactory answer. :-(
I'll try not to repeat that.
The thing is when I plug an external harddisk on my laptop, Gnome
sets the mount points at /media/whatever and mounts the drives. Icons
even pop-up on the desktop. But when i try to view it as a normal user
(click on the drive icons), it says I don't have the correct
I realize that i can only read the external drive mountpoint ONLY as
ROOT! When i do an ls /media/whatever as a normal user, I get access
How to enable Gnome or fstab-sync to mount the drive so that a normal
user can read it?
This is silly that I have to become super user to see my Gnome-mounted
drives! When I set user permissions in fstab, it just stays there for
a while and are overwritten when I plug out and in again my external
USB harddisk. Thanks for any insight.
I hope in FC4, users would be able to just plug-in their harddrive
and read it on the spot. ;-)
