Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Where does KDE get a mount point name for an inserted pendrive from? There is fat32 and no label.
It mounts it as "/run/media/<username>/openSUSE-13.1-DVD-x86_640091/". There was opensuse on this stick before, but I deleted all partitions and formatted the drive.
Setting a new label has solved the problem. I hadn't done it before, because I tried to find the reasons. The partition type is 83 (Linux), but the filesystem is vfat, maybe there's something left from the previous content.

As I understand it UDEV deals with the mouting of devices by UUID and if you ever use a device not labelled at all this is apparent. So, I would then assume that if a label is present a given device will be mounted under a mount point with that name and I see no reason for the mount point for a device to change unless the label changes to another string -- i.e. if it's blank then the old one would be used.
The above is just guesswork but based upon messing with a few USB drives over a fairly long period of time.
