Using (on Fedora 9):


My HP 6500 laptop's recovery partition is no longer ignored by hal, and its mounted when I log in. Looking at the exceptions in 20-storage-methods.fdi there is a rule:

      <!-- HP ships desktops with a recovery partition -->
      <match key="volume.fstype" string="vfat">
        <match key="volume.label" string="HP_RECOVERY">
          <merge key="volume.ignore" type="bool">true</merge>

However, this doesn't match for me because the recovery partition is NTFS. I'm not sure why anything is checking the fstype, but I've attached a patch to look for either.

The hard drive got replaced by HP (under warranty) and it broke then. I don't have the old drive to compare against.

    unify set volume.ignore for recovery partitions

    Unifyed handling/matching of recovery partitions to set volume.ignore
    to true. This should also fix fd.o#18027.
