How can I get KDE4 to automount all vfat usb-sticks with the "flush" mount option?
My /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/20-storage-methods.fdi has a "strlist">flush</append> entry under <!-- allow these mount options for vfat -->. However, the "flush" mount option is not being used according to /etc/mtab but it is available.
/dev/sdc1 /media/KINGSTON vfat rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal,uid=500,utf8,shortname=mixed 0 0
mount -o remount,flush /media/KINGSTON
/dev/sdc1 /media/KINGSTON vfat rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal,uid=500,utf8,shortname=mixed,flush 0 0
I am running Mandriva-2009.1, KDE-4.2.2, Kernel-2.6.32-2 & HAL-0.5.12 & read somewhere that KDE allows the mount options to be set only on a per-volume basis, not per-filesystem.
If that is true, maybe it isn't possible to have a "global" flush mount option that would apply to "All" vfat filesystems when using KDE4.
Anyways, if anyone has a good solution or workaround, I'd appreciate hearing from you. Also, is it true that HAL is being replaced by a new device manager called "DeviceKit".??
If so, I hope it can be disabled without disabling "X" like my HAL does. I tried disabling HAL & couldn't even login to KDE4.
Thanks for reading this post.
