Running karmic kde, fresh install, fully updated (w/ udev 147~.6.1) 


I have an external usb hard drive with one ntfs and four ext3 partitions. Under both Jaunty and Karmic, the drive is found at /dev/sdb1 to /dev/sdb5. Under Jaunty the all the partitions automounted at launch with the following /etc/fstab entries: 



# /media/jupiter was on /dev/sdb5 during installation 
UUID=5af75fba-045b-41c1-ae54-f7c5bc133694 /media/jupiter ext3 relatime 0 2 
# /media/mars was on /dev/sdb3 during installation 
UUID=27655aac-f0fc-40df-9ba1-8412d584b5c5 /media/mars ext3 relatime 0 2 
# /media/mercury was on /dev/sdb2 during installation 
UUID=08c89a6f-7c9c-4f59-b26d-e43921450ad9 /media/mercury ext3 relatime 0 2 
# /media/saturn was on /dev/sdb6 during installation 
UUID=a21074d2-7e57-4676-aeda-c80b560d9c68 /media/saturn ext3 relatime 0 2 
# /media/venus was on /dev/sdb1 during installation 
UUID=1968-2E97 /media/venus vfat utf8,umask=007,gid=46 0 1 
# /windows was on /dev/sda1 during installation 
UUID=B4BCCC8FBCCC4E14 /windows ntfs defaults,nls=utf8,umask=007,gid=46 0 1 


However, under Karmic, I have to manually issue sudo mount -a to get the partitions to mount; they won't automount at boot. 


How can i get them to automount?
