How do you all mount removable media?


I am currently manually mounting DVDs and such as I need them.

I am wondering what most people have setup, or perhaps what is the norm for slack users?

Some sort of auto mount setup?

Everything defined in fstab, so manually mounting is more convenient?

Or something else?

HAL doesn't automount by default, right?

I usually use pmount, available @ http://slackbuilds.org

For my USB hard disk I wrote a set of rules sin /etc/udev/rules.d

I could do that too for DVDs and such.

It probably depends on how often you use them. I do it all manually because I will often put a disk in to use later and don't like having it spinning or popping up the automount thing until I'm ready. I made scripts (or you could make an alias) with the mount commands with names like cdm and dvdm and just type those in whenever I need to mount something. But I don't use disks much. If I used them once a day or more, I might auto-mount.
