Auto mount NTFS partition fedora 12

Hi,
Currently I have a dual boot system it consists of Fedora 12 and Windows Vista, at this time when I am logged into fedora 12 I can select the windows vista partition in the f12 file manager, I am than prompted for the root password and after entering the password, the drive mounts as read/write with no problem. How can I automate this mounting process so once I login as a standard user the NTFS partition mounts without any input? I would like this to auto mount without prompting for a password or having to double click on the vista partition each time. Any idea's would be great.

Thanks,
-Tim

This link describes how to edit fstab in order to mount NTFS partitions on boot:
http://fedorasolved.org/post-install...tfs-read-write

Look down around step 5 & 6. If you can click and mount, I'm assuming the previous steps have already been taken care of. Doesn't hurt to check.

Another way to do it without having to edit your fstab, is to install ntfs-config (yum install ntfs-config) and go to (if in gnome) System>Administration>Ntfs configuration tool. It worked for me, and they all show up and mount, writable or not (you can choose in the tool) as they should.

I have the same problem of time4e. So.I install ntfs-config, but now the disk is not visible. FC12 tell me that only root can access. I am root, but I cannot access to it. How to do?
The disk was /media/DATA, but now I cannot see it no more.

[root@localhost media]# ls -lsa
totale 24
4 drwxr-xr-x. 4 root root 4096 4 mar 11:04 .
4 dr-xr-xr-x. 25 root root 4096 4 mar 11:07 ..
4 -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 28 4 mar 11:12 .created_by_python-fstab
4 drwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 4096 28 gen 15:56 SYSTEM
8 drwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 8192 3 mar 14:07 WINDOWS


I post fdisk

# fdisk -l

I see the partition DATA from windows 7, but it is not possibile to mount it from fedora 12. I see it no more neither by root access.
I dont know how to do.

Perhaps I've done any mistake when I configured ntfs-config. Now I open ntf-config from system>Admin>ntfs-config, and I cannot see the list of the ntfs partitions, as before pushing the auto configuration.

Can you help me? THX a lot!

I can see the DATA ntfs partition from nautilus (dolphin)
When I try to mount the error is:

Impossibile montare la posizione (=impossible to mount the partition)
Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with:
mount: only root can mount /dev/sda3 on /media/DATA

Can u help me please?

check the mounting on console

I haven't tried ntfs-config but check the "Enable write support" http://flomertens.free.fr/ntfs-config/screen.htm
Maybe the program is not showing the devices because they already exist in /etc/fstab. Try comenting out those entries before launching ntfs-config:

#Entry for /dev/sda3 :
#UUID=B8A10005A0FFC7C0 /media/DATA ntfs-3g defaults,nosuid,nodev,locale=it_IT.UTF-8 0 0
#Entry for /dev/sda1 :
#UUID=0CD083E7D083D57C /media/SYSTEM ntfs-3g defaults,locale=it_IT.UTF-8 0 0
#Entry for /dev/sda2 :
#UUID=A81687FB1687C930 /media/WINDOWS ntfs-3g defaults,locale=it_IT.UTF-8 0 0



Impossibile montare la posizione (=impossible to mount the partition)
Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with:
mount: only root can mount /dev/sda3 on /media/DATA


In your /etc/fstab the entry for /dev/sda3 refers to the mounting point /media/DATA but in your /media/ dir I don't see it. You can create it with

Code:
su -c 'mkdir /media/DATA'
'

I haven't tried ntfs-config but check the "Enable write support" http://flomertens.free.fr/ntfs-config/screen.htm

ln your /etc/fstab you could add the option "user" to allow normal users to mount /media/DATA. The line would be like this:

#Entry for /dev/sda3 :
UUID=B8A10005A0FFC7C0 /media/DATA ntfs-3g defaults,user,nosuid,nodev,locale=it_IT.UTF-8 0 0

This allow you to mount the partition as normal user if the dir /media/DATA already exist with the comand
Code:
mount /media/DATA

In ntfs-config check the "Enable write support" http://flomertens.free.fr/ntfs-config/screen.html
