Thread: automount usb pen's in runlevel3 howto ?

  1. #1

    Default automount usb pen's in runlevel3 howto ?

    Hi, i have a 11.1 i586 ver installed with minimum x running, as i need this for school boxes to run rdesktop to a win terminal server.

    i was trying to redirect usb pen's with the -r option in rdesktop so the users will be able to auto access it.

    i have notice that also i have the usb pen connected and i see it with fdisk -l it will not automount it.

    how can i make the system automount usb pen's. ?

    p.s - the system is configured to get to runlevel 3 then in ~./bashrc i have added:
    startx
    rdesktop ...

    I think "ivman" is what you are searching for.

    Hi
    Have you also started the ivman service (as well as enabling it)? Have
    a read of the man page as you shouldn't need to modify the config file.

    Hi
    Hmmm, just tested here and it is working as expected with an OCZ
    Rally2 drive. Can you see the device appear if you run dmesg?

    AFAIK, it is easiest to use with pmount installed as well. (Please correct me if I'm wrong here).

    I note that this ivman page states:

    For automount purposes, Ivman should be run once from a system-wide init script and once per user session (e.g., create a link to /usr/bin/ivman in ~/.kde/Autostart or put an entry for /usr/bin/ivman in gnome-session-manager). When a device is attached, Ivman will call pmount or mount to mount the device. If pmount is used, it will mount the device readable and writeable only for the current user; if no per-user instance of Ivman is running, the device will be mounted read/write for everyone in the same group as is required to use the pmount command, and read-only for everyone else. If regular mount is used, then an fstab entry must exist in /etc/fstab for the device to be mounted, and the settings given in that fstab entry will be used for the mount.
    Have a look at this:

    ok i made some progress, i found this article:


    changed /etc/fstab so it looks like this:
    /dev/sda2 swap swap defaults 0 0
    /dev/sda1 / ext3 acl,user_xattr 1 1
    /dev/sdb1 /media/usb auto noauto,user,exec 0 0
    #/dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST320410A_6FG1166H-part2 swap swap defaults 0 0
    #/dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST320410A_6FG1166H-part1 / ext3 acl,user_xattr 1 1
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    sysfs /sys sysfs noauto 0 0
    debugfs /sys/kernel/debug debugfs noauto 0 0
    usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs noauto 0 0
    devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
    /etc/fstab lines 1-11/11 (END)
    and also edit/create in my home dir:
    .xinitrc/.xsession
    and add this line:
    ivman-launch &

    now when ever i enter a cd or a usb pen i get alot of error messages like this:
