Topic: partition column configuration source?
I am running Trusty Tahr in a chromebook chroot.
While running ChronoOS I inserted various usb and sdhc flash devices to see what files they contained. I don't remember ejecting them and may have just plugged them in and out.
When I run GParted (.18.0) from Ubuntu, while the chromebook's disk is chosen (/dev/sda) - I see several unrecognized and some unmounted partitions.
For example, I see a 'usb' ext4 partition of 16mb size - unmounted (/dev/sda8).
If I open the file manager, the authentication check "..to mount Kingston (/dev/sda8) appears.
One of the USB sticks I inserted was in fact a Kingston 16MB - which I don't have now.
I also see several other partitions of 'unrecognized' file type and unmounted in the GParted partition column - which also show up in file manager.
So apparently gParted and the file manager are able to list and the kernel must keep a history configuration of devices that were previously mounted and perhaps not ejected?
I would like to be able to delete these entries so that they don't show up in GParted.
Is this possible? I am unable to find any configuration file with this information. Using xfce.
thanks for any suggestion.
