Wrong location of pendrive?

Hi,

When I inserted the pen-drive in the system, it is mounted (I mean connected) at this location:

/var/run/media/mypendrive

And earlier once I noted, it was just /media. Is this normal or something has been changed in 12.3? Or if I am wrong and the location is always the one above written…? Confused…

This is a change actually in 12.2, post-release. My 12.2 systems started
using this about a year ago or so, IIRC.

You can find the announcement about this (from the openSUSE Factory
mailing list on March 27, 2012) at:

Well, I would have to read it in details but since it has been done from the developers’ side, so okay. Thanks.

No problem. It has to do with systemd and udisk2, as I understand it.
Getting to the actual details of why the change was made is more involved

  • but it was an upstream change - searching for “/run/media” turned up
    reports of confusion with pretty much every major Linux distribution.

You can disable this “feature”, at least on 12.3. If you want, I’ll post
the recipe.

I was really sure that Linux is so customizable and that’s what the best part is. Before actually becoming sure for this I have some doubts regarding the same, which are as follows:

(i) It would be done only for the current user or these settings would be globally for all users? (I have two user accounts apart from “root”).
(ii) If this is done, I am sure there could be more of such other changes (which I have yet not seen), then this process can/should accordingly be done for the other things also (like for this).

Asking these queries because this just came in mind. Can we get some useful out of this…, yeah that is for sure that the location I know would again resume its place. :slight_smile:

Thanks.

And “upstream change” means the change from the developers or who create the distros?

Global.

If you want a local change, you have to use symlinks on your home.

Some changes can be adjusted, some not. For instance, it is systemd like
it or not.

On “/etc/udev/rules.d/99-correct-media-mount-point.rules” write or create:


> ENV{ID_FS_USAGE}=="filesystem|other|crypto", ENV{UDISKS_FILESYSTEM_SHARED}="1"

(remove ">" on left hand)


and run


udevadm control --reload

No, it comes from the packages that are included in the distribution.
Not everything included in a Linux distribution is made by the
distribution itself.

For example, the Linux kernel. The kernel is developed by the Linux
Kernel team, not by the openSUSE team. So the kernel itself is an
“upstream” project for openSUSE. We can configure the kernel as we want,
but if there’s a major change in the kernel architecture (say, for
example, they drop support for 80386 processors - which actually, they
did), maintaining that within openSUSE becomes less and less feasible
over time.

Hi,

Thanks for all the information. Right going somewhere in the holidays, just see in details when I come back in a week.

Thanks.

Oh I see. Got this. Thanks.

Well thanks, I am going to do this but just ensuring that it has nothing to do with the security or related…! lol!

Oh thanks. But one thing I wanted to know is that though this (the last written paragraph) – I had removed it but still was it visible in the forum…? Though thanks for it, but just wanted to know the reason.

A small other doubt: I am not able to write a little bit longer signature, is it because with time the more things get added to the profile…? Like this…?

Thanks.

Sorry, no idea about that. I don’t access the forum via web, as a web
page. I access via an nntp gateway, with Thunderbird (a mail and nntp
client). Thus I’m only aware of some of the web nuances, not all the
tricks :slight_smile:

I understand that you can not create a signature till you have been here
some longer time, or similar limitation. As I write via nntp, I have
different limitations.

All those doubts about how the forum works, please ask in area I pointed
you to above, not in a technical area like this one. You will then get
answers from the people that really know.
