Default Something changed in udev (again)?

Can't mount my camera. This is what Konqueror comes up with:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda1,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

syslog shows this:

From what I recall the above messages about ext3 were not stopping me mounting
it in the past as a plain user, either with pmount or vanilla mount commands.
No problem mounting it as root. Any quick ideas?

Ahem. You have a camera with an ext3 filesystem on it?

What kind of super camera do you have that understands ext3? Those things
almost universally have vfat.

I'd say you have a b0rked fstab. Udev has nothing to do with it as udev does
not understand filesystems either - mount undertsands filesystems.

Yes, it is vfat - I couldn't explain the ext3 thing either (see below).

Spot on! I was well surprised to see that my fstab had an ext3 fs specified.
Must have been from me experimenting with a NSLU2 device and its fs - not
sure.

Thanks for your help!

You shouldn't be thanking me quite so effusively.

You have no idea how many times I've made the same mistake :-)
