mount/umount
 
This is my /etc/fstab file:

Code:

/dev/hda5        swap            swap        defaults        0  0
/dev/hda1        /                ext3        defaults        1  1
/dev/scd0        /mnt/cdrom      auto        noauto,owner,ro  0  0
/dev/fd0        /mnt/floppy      auto        noauto,owner    0  0
devpts          /dev/pts        devpts      gid=5,mode=620  0  0
proc            /proc            proc        defaults        0  0

What do I have to modify so any user could mount/umount a device?

Thanks!

Add ",user" to the fourth column.

It may be ",users". Or both. 'users' is supposed to be for unmounting, 'user' for mounting.

FYI:
user
Allow an ordinary user to mount the file system. The name of the mounting user is written to mtab so that he can unmount the file system again. This option implies the options noexec, nosuid, and nodev (unless overridden by subsequent options, as in the option line user,exec,dev,suid).

users
Allow every user to mount and unmount the file system. This option implies the options noexec, nosuid, and nodev (unless overridden by subsequent options, as in the option line users,exec,dev,suid).
