Re: [F7] Automatic adding of mount points

Under FC4 I would plug in the USB flash drive, and see in
/var/log/messages that it is autodetected as /dev/sd*, and then the mount
point /media/whatever being created and assigned to it. After that, I
would just type

$ mount /media/whatever

(as an ordinary user, not root) to have the device mounted, if I wish.
That was the default behavior in FC4, but not in FC6 or F7. Now I have to
mkdir a mount point, su to root, then mount -t vfat /dev/sda /somewhere,
chown the files to my username, and then use the device. Possible, but
painful --- I got used to all that being automatic... :-(

So, how do I get that behavior back? I want it to work for all devices I
might  plug in, including USB flash drives, CDs, DVDs, external HDs, etc.

Best regards, :-)

Odd. I am using F7 and when I put a flash drive in a USB port it is automatic mounted at /media and a panel shows up on the desktop listing everything on the drive. When done I right click the image of the flash drive on my desktop and then click on Unmount and pull the flashcard out. I have a external hard drive and it works the same way. Good luck Marko :-)
