Udev anyone?


I'm on sid, kernel 2.6.9-2 and gnome 2.8.2. Everything works just fine. Except udev. Well, udev works great when I'm logged as root. Put in a cd and it appears on the desktop. Nothing when logged as a user. I tried adding my user to the disk group, nothing. Adding him to the root group, nothing. I tried creating a permission file (00-myperms.permissions) and setting hd* root:yanik:0660 and still nothing.

I saw there is a lot of script in /etc/udev. Why are they there? other distros usually have nothing but the 2 dir for perms and rules.

Anyway, anybody have a quick fix? I feel this should be simple to correct. I'm spending way too much time on this simple thing.

Thanks a lot

Yanik

You may want to look at your /etc/fstab and make sure you have "auto,user" for your /dev/cdrom!!!

I was so sure it was udev, I didn't look anywhere else. I'll check my fstab and see if dbus/hal have something interesting in their logs. Thanks again

y2k, I assume udev/dbus/hal works for you?

Are you sure you dont have an entry created under /dev when logged in as user. I think its little to do with udev, please verify the gnome setting of the user.

Sorry, I am able to mount it as a user, but it doesn't auto mount like it does as root.
