Are the drives in question still listed in /etc/fstab?
No, They normally automount in nautilus when I log in to gnome.
/dev/sda1 IS in my fstab as /mnt/Windows.
This DOES work if I mount it manually (from CLI or fstab) to /mnt
But nothing will mount automatically or manually to /media
ALSO, the working version before the update was 2011. The broke version is 2013:
ntfs-3g (2011.1.15-1pclos2011) to 2013.1.13-1pclos2013
I am running gnome on top of the LXDE 2012 iso. And keep updated now.
I will look into the mandriva solution as a possibility today.========
I tried the [ControlPanel]->[LocalDisks] method mentioned at the madriva site but it forcibly mounts them permanently and then they can not be hotswapped. This is not good for SD and USB disks!
So, still broke! I can manually mount ntfs at /mnt or fstab manually to /media but I can no longer hot swap any ntfs drives!
Can we get the old version "ntfs-3g (2011.1.15-1pclos2011)" that worked, back into the repo until the new version is fixed? All the repos now have the 2013-1 version and I can no longer downgrade to the working version!
