Question How to add mount options to automount in Slackware current ?


Hi !

I would like to add a noatime option to every drive i plug into my system.
I looked around, and found no proper solution. Udisks2 is used, but apart strange udev rules, nothing shows how to pass customs options.
I know Udisks2 is a piece of garbage, but there must be a way to do it...

There is doc/ directory inside the udisks2 source tarball, but the SlackBuild doesn't install it into /usr/doc/udisks2. You may have more luck digging there.

I thought if the drives /the etc/fstab would handle that and any other new drives when you say plugin you mean external or hotswap ?
those are mounted in /media and it is the user that has to have permission to access I thought that is how it worked mine works that way.
I have all four of my drives set up in /etc/fstab then anything else I plugin is mounted you just need to access them.
I remember a long time ago when I had multiple usb drives I would pre set them up in fstab so they would auto-mount to /mnt/usb1 etc.
but if your disconnecting and reconnecting it will keep changing.
this was back in the early 2.6 kernel and the 2.4 kernel and you needed to do this to use them.

From what I've been able to tell, you have to configure the volume manager that calls udisks2 to do what you want. If you are running XFCE, that would be Thunar. If it's KDE, I think that Dolphin is what you'd configure.
