I cannot add the utility to yast2-storage without introducing new
dependencies. Add it somewhere where it is always available when hal
is installed, e.g. hal itself.

I don't maintain hal. I can only put this small helper in some GNOME package,
and I don't think it belongs there, especially since you'd want to use it even
when GNOME is not available.

. .

If KDE does not have this problem (and possibly not QT either for that matter)
it would appear that it might be GNOME specific. In fact, since it is not
upstream it might be OpenSuSE GNOME specific. Although this whole situation
surprises me. I would have expect that this whole area of Auto-mounting would
have been fairly standardized by now.

If you guys get this solved, see if you can get a test "11.1 GNOME LiveCD" iso
put together and I will try to install it on one of my computers. Whether or
not you update anything else in the ISO is not that important, though I guess
it would be more stable with the latest packages. The point is that there were
some other apparent bugs related to partitioning and GRUB installation. It
would be good to see if they were partly/wholly byproducts of this one bug.

I have already suggested elsewhere that the current 11.1 GNOME LiveCD iso's
should be replaced. This is not something that should be put off till 11.2. I
hope whomever makes such decisions is considering this.
