I think as a first try I would uninstall the system monitor and the re-install. It can be found on software manager, system tools - Gnome system manager.
I went ahead and uninstalled and reinstalled "gnome-system-monitor" (no such thing as "Gnome system manager" I'm afraid)--no change. One thing I have noticed is that the "System files" tab will show any partition/drive that's mounted except
for the LMDE partition [sda3].
I did some further investigation which led me to check my "etc/fstab" file and it's all messed up which makes absolutely no sense at all. This is a fresh install of the latest LMDE [amd64] respin, all upgrades were accomplished using "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade"
as currently recommended and I've kept all the original config files when prompted (tried it the other way and accepted the new config files and LMDE ended half Debian testing and half LMDE). That plus LMDE is running fine except for what I've already mentioned.
Here's the contents of fstab:
- Code: Select all
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc nodev,noexec,nosuid 0 0
/dev/sda3 / ext4 rw,errors=remount-ro 0 0
UUID=385ecae6-bd34-41c3-a524-974b8cd6d17f / ext3 errors=remount-ro 0 1
UUID=c6876978-438f-4a1e-ae53-dacdf22d1e4a none swap sw 0 0
/dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
/dev/sda5 swap swap sw 0 0
The two UUIDs listed do not exist on my hard drive and all partitions are ext4. Nor do I have any removable drives that would have caused those entries. And the file hasn't been modified since the install so I'm rather confused as to what happened. Unfortunately, I'm not versed in changing fstab entries at all so it's going to be hit or miss as to whether I can straighten this out without having to reload. Good thing this is only a test install.
