I'm running Fedora 14 with the 188.8.131.52-92.fc14.i686 kernel and Gnome 2.32.0. I have a few NTFS drives that are mounted when I start up. However, there is no entry for them in fstab and nothing in mtab. (EDIT: The NTFS drives aren't in /proc/mounts either) Furthermore there is no mention of any NTFS filesystems in /etc/filesystems and /proc/filesystems.
FYI, all of the NTFS commands on my system are as follows:
# compgen -c | grep ntfs ntfs-3g ntfsmount ntfsmftalloc ntfs-3g.probe ntfsdump_logfile ntfsfix ntfsdecrypt ntfs-3g ntfs-3g.secaudit ntfs-3g.usermap ntfsls ntfscat ntfstruncate ntfswipe ntfsmount lowntfs-3g ntfscmp ntfsinfo ntfsck ntfscluster ntfsmove ntfslabel mount.ntfs-3g mount.ntfs mount.lowntfs-3g mkntfs ntfscp mkfs.ntfs ntfsundelete mount.ntfs-fuse ntfsclone ntfsresize
- How does a Linux machine auto-mount an NTFS drive without looking at fstab?
- How is an NTFS drive mounted without NTFS being listed in either of the above to filesystem files?
- Why is there no mention of a mounted NTFS filesystem in mtab even though they're mounted on my system and browsable?
