One is running Ubuntu 7.10 (gutsy gibbon). The other was running gutsy, but now is running Ubuntu 8.04 beta (hardy heron).
On both machines I mount an NFS share. My mountpoint is at /mnt/tardis-media on both of them. My fstab line is the same on both of them.
Here's the difference. When I mount the share on one machine, the folder displays on the desktop and in the "places" view of the Gnome explorer.
When I mount the share on the second machine, it doesn't. Didn't on gutsy, doesn't on a completely reinstalled hardy. I'm baffled.
I would really like the share to be easier to get to (rather than navigating to /mnt/tardis-media.
