    Default kde : device notifier does not mount (after opensuse upgrade 11.4)

    Dear all,
    I was using 12 months now opensuse 11.3 and kde device notifier was always working.
    After upgrading to 11.4 the device notifier never mounted an external usb drive.
    When I plug in the device is recognized by device notifier (applet) and I press open with dolphin...
    Mounting never is done neither dolphin ever appears.

    what can I try? I have not change any settings so far.

    Best Regards
    Alex

    Is it a NTFS formatted drive? My backup drive, which is
    formatted NTFS showed the same behaviour. I could only mount
    it from a terminal (as root) with the command:
    > mount -t ntfs /dev/sdc1 /mnt

    The /dev/sdc1 name is dependent on your setup, you can find
    out through Dolphin.
    Unmount using
    >umount /dev/sdc1


    This is a workaround, from the error description I understand
    there must be better ways to solve this.

    It is fat32 drive and the same happens to my other computer. I have two computers one laptop and one desktop and after I have upgraded them both device notifier has stopped mouninting disks and optical media!
    what else can I try? ( tried this one but failed)

    Code:
    zypper se -s udisks
