I have an SSD for my boot, and some of my media directories (i.e. Pictures) are still on a regular hard drive.
I mount the disk:
/dev/sdb1 /data ext3 noatime 0 2
And then mount the partitions:
/data/me/Pictures /home/me/Pictures none bind
I can CD into the directories, the file manager can show me the files, but some programs (for example, the Fedora 17 default Image Viewer) produce an error saying that only root can mount the partition - which is already mounted.
Is this a bug in the way programs access the file system, or am I using the bind mount incorrectly?
