Interesting. I always thought "noauto" only applied to the "mount -a"
(including the mounting that occurs during system boot). But I see that
it does inhibit automounting via HAL / udev / whatever.

Yes, but it is up to the desktop entirely, I understand. I mean, they choose not to automount if there is an fstab entry. In my gnome, I see a peak of cpu activity, but it is not mounted.

Which is lucky for us :-)

Maybe, if you leave the keyword as "auto" it mounts in the place specified in fstab, and with those options. It would make sense.

Oddly enough, I still get the KDE dialogs asking me what I want to do
when the device comes on-line, even though it doesn't get mounted

It is something. Maybe you can find somewhere in the kde control panel something about this behavior.

heh, the window is a signal for you that the device has indeed been recognized, and you can proceed with the manual mount.

Well, that's the important part of what I wanted. No auto-mounting.


Welcome :-)
