I've got Debian and an external USB2 HD.
I've used a script:
and hotplug support (running with all necessary modules and the 2.6 kernel)
so that when I plug in the device, it gets recognised, the filesystem
recognised and mounted and a little icon put onto the desktop. That all
However, whenever I try to unmount the device, either by right-clicking
the icon and choosing unmount, or unplugging the HD, I have problems.
Debian doesn't notice when the device is unplugged and throws an error
(saying that it can't find the unmount script) when I choose the menu
option... despite the fact that the path is correct:
I've previously had this exact same setup in Redhat with no problems, so
I'm a little confused as to why Debian won't allow roughly the same thing.
If anyone has any experience with this sort of thing, or just external
USB devices on Debian, then please let me know!
