Can't link, because there's the username in the path, ie. /run/media/my_name/drive_id
Auto-stuff isn't used, it's udisk2 that manages drives now.
As far as i understand, it's another intrusive gnome-crap.
The most criminal thing in it is that there's absolutely no default compatibility layer in it, which leads me to the conclusion that the guys behind this are total idiots.

Debian has made a patch for udisks2 to restore the FHS-compliant behaviour. You can apply it to the udisks2.SlackBuild by using the attached files. (You have to remove the .txt extension, because this forum software doesn't accept .diff or .patch as an attachment).
Seems to me /media and /run/media/$USER should be a build option or an /etc/ config option. The latter is better and allows everybody to choose and be happy.
Right, hard-coding paths into the source code is very bad behavior, such things belong to a configuration file. Also I found another correlation between bad software design and bad coding style (two-space indents? seriously?).
It is no surprise for me that developers are trying to scape from this crap, spawning things like udevil. It is sad I see no alternative project receiving support enough to kick the udev/disks2 mess off.
