I am using RHEL 4.0 on my desktop. When I plug in the usb storage disk it is detected and a shortcut is added to the desktop.
Well I would like to know what part of the OS is doing it or if it is some service.
I checked out the net and also read a few things. I have seen there is a hotplug dir in /etc however the usb.usermap file doesnot have anything other than usb-cam entries for large number of usb digital cameras. Also the /etc/init.d dir doesnot have a hotplug script. So hotplug is not doing that stuff. right ?
Ok next I see the autofs service enabled in the present runlevel and when I do a status check it shows
# > service autofs status
Configured Mount Points:
Active Mount Points:
Nothing there ! also the /etc/auto.master file is all comented out. So that isn't doing it either ! that is where I loose track.
Ok one more thing the /etc/fstab file has an entry like this :
/dev/sda /media/usbdisk vfat pamconsole,noatime,sync,fscontext=system_ubject_r:removable_t,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
Can someone tell me what is happening?!?
thanks in advance
