I have a problem that relates to this thread. I needed Device Manager, I thought I had used this many moths ago on a system to mount a single partition at boot time. I do not recognise my paticular OS install but will put this down to advanced years.
The problem however is for me it will only respond to any partition number <10. They all seems to be detected (some 40 plus) but only numbers under 10 can be selected and activate configuration. In my case I want to activate /dev/sdb10.
I started in root konsole, actually I wanted the help but it started up, and I have configured a test /dev/sdc1 as I happen to run this system at present.:
[root@localhost gert]# pysdm --help
Warning: Unknown especial options for ext4 filesystem
Warning: Unknown option: rw
Warning: nouser is not suitable for user
Warning: Unknown option: async
Warning: Unknown option: defaults
Have no idea at this time what this refers to but expect it was the config details I filled in.

PS: This problem is no longer important to me, since I did not recognise the install I dug into my records and found it was Device Notifier that I was after, and I am now configuring up to suit my need.
