Is there a way to edit the fstab to mount cd images upon boot. I have the SUSE 9.3 CDS as image files on my hard drive but for some reason I can't get Kouvert to allow this (at least it won't mount, I'm afraid to actually reboot with this fstab). I used this link for the proper options. Any help would be lovely. Sorry to post this here but couldn't find any other forums.

Hi,

I'm very excited to see this app, I had simular plans to create such module but you already did it!!
I believe Linux needs these control center modules. (just like a module for syslog, sudo, courier-imapd, apache, postfix, etc..)

I also have some suggestions, based on my own orginal ideas:
* what about showing icons for the devices, and group them by type:
- Hard disks,
- Removable media,
- Virtual file systems,
- Network shares
* Offer two view modules:
- Table view (your current view)
- Grouped view, including the nice expanded partitions in your second screenshot.
* Change the options textbox into some dialog with checkboxes, and perhaps a custom field for unsupported options.
* Your current "add" button is a bit weird, but I'm wondering: is the next screenshot your current development version?

Thanks in advice! I love this app already, but I see some room for improvement as well.

Hi,

great work! Normally I'm editing my fstab with vim, or mc. But why not using a graphical frontend? For People, not knowing the exact construction of fstab it can help to manage it. And sometimes not all options are being known, so this tool can really help to live without reading the manpage every time :)

If you have an fstab with comment lines, the lines get moved to comments for the following mount. I.e., in my fstab, I have comments on the sections:

# hard drives:
LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 1

# Removable media
/dev/floppy /mnt/floppy ...
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 ....
/dev/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom1 iso9660 ....


This causes the comment "Hard drives" to be attached to the "/" entry, and "Removable media" to be stuck to "/dev/floppy". You should preserve comment lines, and preserve them in the grid.

It's normal, a comment is attached to the first following entry, not the second or other. You can comment every entries, but not a block of entries. Kouvert is not a text editor!

i think that you should keep the ability to comment certain blocks in the text. i would really need that before using the app.
thanks

You can comment the first entry of your block and not comment the others. Just click on an icon, press CTRL and drag up or down your entry.

you might want to say it depends on python/pyqt though.
