Unhappy fc17 - unwanted presentation of internal harddisk partitions on desktop and filemgr


In comparison with fc16, I encounter a new behaviour of fc17 on partitions of my internal harddisks. (Some call this maybe "user friendly").

Before approx. fc12, the desktop and filemangers only showed and mounted partiotiona of internal harddisks if you had specified them in fstab. Straightforward and easy to understand behaviour.

Beginning approx fc12, things changed, and all internal harddisk partitions showed up on the desktop and in file managers, if you liked it or not. This new behaviour was due to policy-kit and associates. It turned out you could disable this behaviour with a udev rule.


This rule says that the desktop and file managers should respect the setting that the presentation of sda* devices (these are my internal harddisk partitions) should not be shown.

On fedoraforum it was suggested to specify these partitions as noauto in fstab. However as far as I know this does not work for luks partions.

NOW in FC17 the udev rules solution does no longer work.

The most preferent solution to me seems that when I specify a partions as noauto in fstab that gnome/desktop and filemanager really do NOT interfere.

Has anyone a suggestion ?
