Question How to set up automount on Slackware??


Hello,

I am setting up my laptop with Slackware 14 x64 and I want to put the automount feature on it like ubuntu has, because I use a lot of usb and mounting everytime it just delays my work, I been reading about it in Google and for what I read it seems I need to set up something called autofs, can anyone provide me a tutorial or link or something to help me out to set it up, any help would be appreciate.


Thanks!!

to automagically mount an external device that it typically handled via the GUI. autofs is not for what you are looking for unless you are going to create unique udev rules for each USB device.
