Automatic mounting/unmounting of usb devices

Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: base system Version:

I hacked the usb-storage script to automount multiple disks and unmount them on removal.

This is on brcm-2.4 on an asus wl500gp

dd was the only reliable way to tell which device had been removed, if there is a better way, please tell me.

comment:2 Changed 9 years ago by anonymous

the attachments:

usb-storage is /sbin/usb-storage
10-usb-storage is /etc/hotplug.d/usb/10-usb-storage

this also enables handlers on adding removing usb devices in /etc/usb-handlers.d/

i use it to scan newly inserted sticks for music, symlink it and update mpd accordingly

can you check the Automount Option again !? It seems not working in the actually Trunk.

I'm writing a new set of auto-mounting scripts and hope to commit them in the next few days.
