in my laptop with opensuse 12.2 and kde 4.10 I had a sata hard disk with some partitions and one of them was labeled with label=dati (I call it the dati partition of the old disk).
I cloned the hard disk and successfully substituted the old one with the new one and installed on it opensuse 12.3 and kde 4.10.
so, also the new disk has one partition with label=dati (I call it the dati partition of the new disk).
this is the fstab of the new disk with opensuse 12.3 (that is like the one on old disk with opensuse 12.2)
now I put the old hard disk in a usb box and connect the usb to the laptop, well, I cannot access to the old and the new dati partition at the same time.
if I open the /dati folder I can see the content of the dati partition of the new disk, if I mount the dati partition on the old disk connected via usb (in dolphin I can see the just connectet usb device and the dati partition so I rightclick on it and mount it) in the /dati folder (where should be mounted the dati partition of the new disk) now, I can see the content of the dati partition of the old disk.
what I expect is that the opensuse should mount usb devices in /var/something/media folder as usual in opensuse 12.3, why this?? is this a bug?? can be corrected???
EDITED: Oh, sorry, I assumed you used KDE to (auto-)mount it. If you want to manually mount it by label, behavior is correct. How can system distinguish between two different devices having the same label?
Try removing this line from /etc/fstab and using standard KDE automount feature. It may work. Or simply change label on one disk to dati-new or whatever. It is the most obvious solution
I want to mount the internal sata disk mounted by label, and the usb one mounted by what the system like to do but label…
I don’t know how can system distinguish between two different devices having the same label, but it should!!!, one is connected via sata internal interface and the other one via usb external box,
I will try to remove the /etc/fstab line…, but, it seems not easy or very close to impossible :), to tell to KDE where automatically mount removable devices…, I would like to mount the new disk partition in /dati…, it is possible to do it with kde??? without fstab???
thnx, ciao, Pier…
That is nicely said, but even you can see that in your fstab there is not mentioning of the type of bus used for the device. Thus even you can come to the conclusion that the system can not know the difference between two partitions that have the same label, where that is the only differrence between the two. Even I can not tell which one you mean when you only say it is the one with the green sticker and both have a green sticker.
