automount didnt work


Hi Guys,

I am trying to get my CD/DVD writer automagicly, but the autommount didnt work. But when I made a mount manually to /dev/hdc, that works

My auto.master content is:
/media/cdrom /etc/auto.cdrom --timeout 10

My auto.cdrom content is:
cdrom -fstype=iso9660,ro :/dev/cdrom

And mtab show the process running on PID 1703

Then What's wrong?

Salu2 y GrAcIaS!

The automounter doesn't work reliably for optical disk drives. It's a pitty, but it won't work.

If you use Gnome, try gnome-volume-manager. It seems to work, even though I myself have not yet used that much. It requires udevd and hald, so it requires a 2.6 kernel.

Gnome-volume-manager should also work regardless of whether you use Gnome, but of course apt will want to install gnome anyways. Other options (of which I have only limited experience) are submount and supermount. The latter is included in Mandrake and Gentoo.

Hi,

Well, It's a Pitty.
I am trying to use gnome-volume-manager, but I don't know from where to start.
Could you tell where I can see the configuration of this application?
I have gnome, It's in my menu systems? where?

Thanks!

download and use 'bastille'
it will walk you through security setup for your workstation, including automount setup.

instead of automount, why dun u create a CDROM icon on ur desktop and link it to /dev/hdc?
It is convenient to mount it in this way too and rightclick when u wana umount.
