automount usb memory on corelinux
 
First of all, I apologize since I know this topic was addressed in similar posts. I did do a search and found some information, but I couldn't quite relate it to what I'm doing. Here's where I'm at.

I've installed corelinux and updated it to the 2.6.7 kernel (I selected the automounter v4). Generally, I can access the USB memory. When I plug it into the port, a message is displayed and I can mount the device and access files on it. I have it in my fstab so all I have to do is call mount with the mount point (i.e mount /mnt/usb). But I'd really like to access it immediately without having to mount it manually. In addition, I'd like to have it accessible by a non-privileged account. I did download 'hotplug' from 'linux-hotplug.sourceforge.net' and had no success. Incidently, I could access the USB memory prior to installing 'hotplug' from sourceforge (from above). (Please excuse me, I'm new to Linux and probably not understanding something.) Anyway, I'd like to know how to proceed in getting this to work. Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

You need to use HAL, the Hardware Abstraction Layer.

Thank you for your response. I'll have a look at HAL.

Does anyone know why my installing 'hotplug' from sourceforge had no effect? Or was this because I have the kernel already configured for 'hotplug?' Would it be safe to remove 'hotplug' I installed?

I believe you have load the module first:
Code:

modprobe hotplug
