diskdrake don't save mount options in etc/fstab
Last modified: 2015-02-18 16:44:28 MSK
Description of problem: Changing mount options aren't saved in etc/fstab then they aren't retained.
I would disable mounting a windows partition.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: ever
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a terminal, become root and give command diskdrake
2. choose a partition -> unmount if is mounted
3. Toggle to expert mode -> Options -> select Noauto -> OK
4. in "Partitioning" window press Done. The window close without any message.
6. is still possible mounting partition
fstab has lowest priority for disable mount - you need fix udev rules. For default we enable this to all, becouse users need mount windows partition and no deprecate this.
(In reply to comment #1)
diskdrake don't affect fstab at all. No question about priority. Is this a bug or not?

What it means? What have I to change? Is there a GUI that allow this operation?

I don't deprecate this too. But what if I want to change this?
This was not only possible, it was quite easy using diskdrake.
Please check the problem for new release
I can't confirm this for Fresh R5. diskdrake works well and prints necessary options to /etc/fstab.
Note that in some cases it doesn't write fstab changes and honestly reports you about that. For example, if your partition is not formatted, you can get a message like "You should format /dev/sdX, otherwise changes to /etc/fstab will not be made". Maybe this was your case?
For now, marking as "worksforme".
