Unable to auto mount external HDD

Following error is shown when I try to mount (auto mount) hard disk using dolphin.
“an error occured while accessing ‘one’, the system responded:
org.freedesktop.UDisks.Error.Failed:Requiested filesystem type is neither well known or not in proc/filesystems”.

I am using suse 11.4, and partition ‘one’ is of type ntfs. There is no problem with the hard disk, since it works fine in windows.

the filesystem presets are


linux-rahul:/proc # cat filesystems
nodev   sysfs
nodev   rootfs
nodev   bdev
nodev   proc
nodev   cgroup
nodev   cpuset
nodev   tmpfs
nodev   devtmpfs
nodev   debugfs
nodev   securityfs
nodev   sockfs
nodev   usbfs
nodev   pipefs
nodev   anon_inodefs
nodev   devpts
         ext3
         ext2
nodev   ramfs
nodev   hugetlbfs
         iso9660
nodev   mqueue
         ext4
nodev   fuse
         fuseblk
nodev   fusectl

I think this is a known problem that you may be experiencing:

https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=270689

You’ll need to add ‘ntfs’ entry to /etc/filesystems

BTW, there are other recent threads discussing this issue (affecting openSUSE 11.4) if you care to search.

Also, consider exploring the advice in this thread:

Can’t mount my EXT NTFS HDD.

Thank you.

Semi-OT: does anyone has an idea why this bug is not fixed yet? And: I would not consider this to be an KDE-bug, but an openSUSE-bug; KDE is not responsible for the content of /etc/filesystems, is it?

I do not bother, since I don’t use NTFS anyway, but naturally this topic occurs quite often, so I wonder why the devs don’t fix it.

But it has been fixed - the udisks patch landed in the update repo on 19
July.

Oh, I thought ‘ntfs’ missing in /etc/filesystems was the bug. Apparently that is not necessary.
