Since a few weeks ago, Plasma Device Notifier thinks all my internal hard drive partitions are removable and always shows them. If I go into it's settings and select to show "Non-removable devices only", it doesn't show any devices. Selecting "All devices" or "Removable devices only" shows all devices. I didn't change my fstab settings. How can I make Device Notifier know that my internal HD partitions shouldn't be considered "removable"?
      Code:
$ cat /etc/fstab
#<Device>               <mountpoint>            <fstype>        <mount>                         <dump> <pass>

LABEL=data1             /media/disk1part1       ext4            auto,users,rw,async             0       2
LABEL=data2             /                       ext3            defaults,errors=remount-ro,noatime      0       1
LABEL=home              /home                   ext3            auto,user,rw,exec,noatime               0       2
LABEL=swap              none                    swap            sw                                      0       0
LABEL=data6             /media/disk1part6       ext4            auto,users,rw,async             0       2
LABEL=data7             /media/disk1part7       ext4            auto,users,rw,async             0       2
LABEL=data8             /media/disk1part8       ext4            auto,users,rw,async             0       0
/dev/cdrom7             /media/cdrom            udf,iso9660     noauto,ro,user                          0       0
#/dev/fd0               /media/fd0              auto            noauto,rw,user                          0       0

"user", instead of "users". The difference is, "user" only allows the user who mounted the partition to umount it again (given the auto in fstab means it's mounted on-boot, by root), while "users" allows that to every user.

I edited fstab, rebooted, no effect, Device Notifier stills shows my 6 regular HD partitions, data1 through data8 and home. It sees all the devices as removable. Fully upgraded system.
      Code:
cat /etc/fstab
#<Device>               <mountpoint>            <fstype>        <mount>                         <dump> <pass>

LABEL=data1             /media/disk1part1       ext4            auto,user,rw,async              0       2
LABEL=data2             /                       ext3            defaults,errors=remount-ro,noatime      0       1
LABEL=home              /home                   ext3            auto,user,rw,exec,noatime               0       2
LABEL=swap              none                    swap            sw                                      0       0
LABEL=data6             /media/disk1part6       ext4            auto,user,rw,async              0       2
LABEL=data7             /media/disk1part7       ext4            auto,user,rw,async              0       2
LABEL=data8             /media/disk1part8       ext4            auto,user,rw,async              0       0
/dev/cdrom7             /media/cdrom            udf,iso9660     noauto,ro,user                          0       0
#/dev/fd0               /media/fd0              auto            noauto,rw,user                          0       0

Could it be the async flag? Isn't that for external devices?

I still have this issue. No matter what options I put into /etc/fstab, device notifier lists all my hard drive partitions.
      Code:
cat /etc/fstab
#<Device>               <mountpoint>            <fstype>        <mount>                         <dump> <pass>

LABEL=data1             /media/disk1part1       ext4            auto,user,rw,async              0       2
LABEL=data2             /                       ext3            defaults,errors=remount-ro,noatime      0       1
LABEL=home              /home                   ext3            auto,user,rw,exec,noatime               0       2
LABEL=swap              none                    swap            sw                                      0       0
LABEL=data6             /media/disk1part6       ext4            auto,user,rw,async              0       2
LABEL=data7             /media/disk1part7       ext4            noauto          0       2
LABEL=data8             /media/disk1part8       ext4            defaults                        0       0
/dev/cdrom7             /media/cdrom            udf,iso9660     noauto,ro,user                          0       0
#/dev/fd0               /media/fd0              auto            noauto,rw,user

This issue has been solved by an upgrade. Now the plasma device notifier only shows my hard drive partitions when I select "Non-removable devices only" or "All devices". Smile
