Modifying fstab to prevent password requests before mounting a hard drive

by Craig Mayhew on Sun 28th Mar 2010 under Linux/Ubuntu
After a fresh install of Ubuntu Karmic I found that the additional hard drives kept asking for a password each time I logged in and accessed them for the first time.

mount-drive-password

To fix the problem, simply install pysdm:

sudo apt-get install pysdm


Then run it as root:

sudo pysdm


Choose your device and then mount your partitions accordingly.

Ubuntu 9.10   pysdm   Mount
