Which script gets executed?


How can I find out which script runs and automatically mounts any usb drive inserted? This script seems to be faulty because it fails on ext3 disks but functions fine on NTFS or HFS+ disks.

If I can find out which script it is maybe someone can help me fix it?

Ummm ... your browser icon suggests that you're on a Mac.
I don't think (don't know for sure though) that the Mac
has ext3 support by default?


Cheers,

Maybe this will help. Do you even have ext2/ext3/ext4 support? You might have to make that work before Mac sees any ext2 drive

Please provide your distribution's name and version, then hopefully we will be able to help you.

And provide as well the output of "dmesg | tail --lines 20", issued 30 seconds after having plugged in your USB hard disk drive.

Code:
sudo tail -f /var/log/messages

Distro? I don't think have one of those. But I think I'm running almost a complete bash shell. No gui.

Here's the output of /var/log/messages/
Code:

And here's the output of dmesg showing the lines that appear after I plug in the disk

Execute the following command in shell and post the output here:
Code:
uname -a && cat /etc/*release

This seems interesting:

Can you mount manually this drive like this ?
Code:
mount -t ext3 /dev/sdb1 /mnt

I have no problems mounting the device manually with that command. Though usually I don't specify the "-t ext3" part. It seems like it figures that out for itself.

The thing is. If I plug in a NTFS or even HFS+ drive those get automatically mounted. But not if I plug in a ext3 drive. Why?

Why?

Probably because some udev rule is wrong in your system (the one which set up the option "gid=100").

But knowing nothing about it (e.g. kernel and udev versions) it's really hard to figure out.

How did you install udev ? What is the kind or brand and version of your Linux system ? Did you install it yourself or was it already installed on your computer ?

This is a nas box created by western digital. It has some custom linux version on it, but they give you full root access.

got this output from uname -a
Code:
uname -a
Linux MyBookWorld 2.6.24.4 #1 Tue Feb 10 11:00:22 GMT 2009 armv5tejl GNU/Linux
I have no idea what udev is, so I don't know how to answer that question.

To make sure, please send output of following command, typed as root (otherwise it won't work):
Code:
udevd --version
