automounting usb devices with usbmount works well but i have one problem
 
i m trying to comfigure my debian sarge in order to not have to add my devices in fstab,but automounting them.
i used the package usbmount. i loaded all the needed modules and the result is fine. when i plug in my usb hard disk, i have to icons in my konqueror and i use my disk normally.

the only problem is that as simple user i have no privilleges to unmount my disk. as root all works fine.

what am i doing wrong. does anyone know the solution to my problem??if i fix this, i will write a tutorial, because it is very simple but most of the new users do not know how to manage it.

Hi, I don't use usbmount myself, but
I went to the homepage
http://users.actrix.co.nz/michael/usbmount.html
(I assume that's the same prog)
and found a link to this
http://www.xs4all.nl/~bsamwel/usb_st...on_debian.html
which talks about an option MOUNT_OPTIONS
which lives in /usr/local/etc/usb-mount.conf
(however I suspect a Debian package probably makes that /etc/usbmount.conf)

Perhaps you could try setting umask=002 in those options?

mechmg93 10-18-2005 03:37 AM

i finally managed it. my mistake was that i thought that package usbmount was usb-mount.

i tried to follow these instructions http://www.xs4all.nl/~bsamwel/usb_st...on_debian.html

with a wrong package. so I downloaded usb-mount 0.95 , i followed the instructions of the above link and the INSTALL.txt(very important), and worked fine!!!

mechmg93 10-19-2005 07:51 AM

after using usb-mount ,it runs well but the only problem i have is that my usb hard disk stops responding when i try to write something in it. i have formatted it using fat32 format.

does anybody know any solution to this problem??

#my disk works fine in windows xp

uberNUT69 10-20-2005 06:42 PM

Change your umask from 0002 to 002

Make sure you umount your drive before unplugging!

uberNUT69 10-20-2005 06:43 PM

Actually, that won't make a difference to your problem,
when I think twice. Any more info to go on?
Contents of fstab, how you've configured usb-mount, etc?

OK, I'm not familiar with usb-mount, however
what are the contents of fstab, and what does
# fdisk -l
produce?

(sorry about delay, found cracked DSL cable .... eventually)
(took me longer to find my crimpers though! lol )

Doesn't it help using the "auto" option in fstab?
