OK - so maybe an update broke it.

I'm curious, now. Which version of KDE are you running?

FWIW Claude, I am using gnome.

I would expect this is a hotplug issue and not a windows manager issue.


What surprised me was that the old laptop still has automounting working, while the other two boxes don't. All three have FC4, and all are updated daily.

Been away on holidays and just got back.

This is my experience as well. USB drive works properly on two FC-4 machines but not on a third machine. All updated almost daily. Two configured almost the same.

Just tried to mount my stick on the machine that does not work.

The stick is labled as Robin_Laing.

The mount point is in /media but when I type in mount, it isn't listed at all. df doesn't show anything either.

If I remove the stick, the mount point /media/Robin_Laing disappears. Something is not tying the /dev/sda1 to /media/Robin_Laing.

I thought the stick was damaged as a Windows user had borrowed it. I can manually mount the drive.

Are your symptoms the same?
