Seems so. Also, I tried disabling the fuse service
and rebooted and for some reason, the fusefs still
runs? It still mounts /media files even when this
service is so-called disabled? I went back to look
to see if the service was running (it wasn't) and
even tried ps -ef| grep fuse (finding no match), so
why is fuse filesystem still running? Is that a major
bug or is it that the fuse service has no relation to
Well, can I have a policy work around or will it fail
anyway due to fuse?
BTW: I am running Fedora F8.
