View Full Version : [ubuntu] NFS Mount Shows Multiple Times in the Places

I already posted this on the Network Support with no real solution:


I have the follwoing fenomenan. In my /etc/fstab I have an entry to automatically mount my NAS. Here is my entry: /media/My\040NAS nfs _netdev,
auto,rw,hard,users,intr 0 0

When my laptop boots it successfully mounts the NFS NAS and I get an icon "My NAS" on my dekstop that points to the NAS. If I double click on the icon it opens my file browser and I can browse thru my NAS fodlers.

What I see on the left hand side of the file browser is that I have to entries for My NAS. One of it has a button to shows that it is mounted and the other does not.

If I go to Places I also see 2 entries for "My NAS". One of it takes me to browsing the NAS and if I click on the other it says "Unable to mount ... busy or already mounted". Which makes sense.

If I unmount everything and mount everything back, it seems to be ok.

The question is why do I have 2 (two) entries for the same thing?

Forgot to mention that I just tested this on a plain new 10.10 instalaltion and the problem is still there.
