Well, it works and no message is prompted. Running it with debug options show

I have purged all the old packages and the problem continues ...

I have installed it but I would prefer to have a window asking what to do.

There are some questions also, I have found that you cannot have any device 
that mount in /sys. I have had some devices and I have comment it in the 
fstab (and also the /dev/sda that pmount said that there was a problem) and 
reboot, etc.... but if I do a cat /etc/mtab I found this:

proc /proc proc rw 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs rw 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts rw,gid=5,mode=620 0 0
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs rw 0 0
usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs rw 0 0
binfmt_misc /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc binfmt_misc rw 0 0

this is normal?


and thank's for your patience.
