I have just installed a FreeBSD 11.1-RELEASE (amd64) desktop system following the Cooltrainer guide.
For some reason, both XFCE's Thunar and KDE's Dolphin file managers both show an 8 GB device in the devices list (in the panel at the left of the file manager, which, for example, also shows the CD-ROM drive). This device is most likely my swap partition (Thunar does not show the device's name, but Dolphin does show it to be my swap partition
/dev/ada0p2). Does anyone know how I can prevent the
/dev/ada0p2 swap partition from showing up as a device in the file manager?
My hard disk is partitioned as follows:
% gpart show => 40 625142368 ada0 GPT (298G) 40 1024 1 freebsd-boot (512K) 1064 984 - free - (492K) 2048 16777216 2 freebsd-swap (8.0G) 16779264 608362496 3 freebsd-zfs (290G) 625141760 648 - free - (324K)
/etc/fstab is as follows:
% cat /etc/fstab # Device Mountpoint FStype Options Dump Pass# /dev/ada0p2 none swap sw 0 0 proc /proc procfs rw 0 0 fdesc /dev/fd fdescfs rw,auto,late 0 0
