Can't umount a partition from dolphin [Solved]

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have run into a problem: I see I can umount and mount NTFS partitions from commandline. There is one partition that can be umounted and mounted from dolphin (the Win7 100MB partition), however this partition is nowhere to be seen in fstab or mtab. The other two NTFS partitions are both in fstab and mtab, but can't be umounted from dolphin neither by root nor by other users. The error raised by Dolphin is this:


org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume.NotMountedByHal: Device to unmount is not in /media/.hal-mtab so it is not mounted by HAL.


The file mentioned in the error is empty.







Here is my fstab:


# Entry for /dev/sda5 :

UUID=a49824a9-3fcb-418d-887e-c106745480ca / ext4 relatime 1 1

/dev/cdrom /media/cdrom auto umask=0,users,iocharset=utf8,noauto,ro,exec 0 0

# Entry for /dev/sda6 :

UUID=877148664FEFB610 /mnt/data ntfs-3g locale=es_CO.UTF-8 0 0

# Entry for /dev/sda2 :

UUID=F2EAD096EAD05905 /mnt/windows/ ntfs-3g locale=es_CO.UTF-8 0 0

none /proc proc defaults 0 0

# Entry for /dev/sda7 :

UUID=db6f70f7-9131-464d-ad54-d982690ce008 swap swap defaults 0 0




Is this a bug?

No, it's kind of normal. When you remove those entries from fstab, you'll then be able to mount them like the other one from within Dolphin when you click them.


I had them in fstab once, but when I clicked, I would get the same or similar error. Commented them from fstab and rebooted, and job done :)
