All are identified as "fusefs":
/dev/fuse on /media/Windows7_OS (fusefs, local, synchronous)
/dev/fuse on /media/Media (fusefs, local, synchronous)
The man page for mount_fusefs(8) explains this. If you are not familiar
with the fusefs implementation, fuse_mount is a the code that does allof
the heavy lifting. ntfs-3g and mount.exfat-fuse. are daemons that remain
resident as long as the volume remains mounted. so fusefs is all that is
known to the system.
While the mount_fusefs command can be used to mount the system, it would
take several options that I am unsure how or if they can be entered into
the fstab file.
Thanks for looking at this. I am completely baffled at this point.
