I don't see something new at /dev/mnt
Slackware by default does not do automounting. You have to recompile
the kernel, etc. for that. I am able to plug in a USB device and have
Konqueror mount it and open it's location simply by clicking on the
Removable Device icon under Storage Media, but that is not the same as
Until you figure out automounting, you can put this in /etc/fstab:
/dev/sdb1 /usb1 vfat noauto,users,rw,umask=1000 0 0
/dev/sdc1 /usb2 vfat noauto,users,rw,umask=1000 0 0
(substitute /dev/sdb1 and /dev/sdc1 for your first two devices)
for your USB devices. You also need to create the /usb1 and /usb2 mount
points, then change the owner to your normal user by issuing:
chown mingdao.users /usb1
(substitute your username for mingdao)
and change the permissions to your liking. I use:
because I'm the only one using this box, and I want full read/write
perms on my devices.
This Quick and Dirty Guide to Linux File Permissions
in LQ's Linux Tutorials is very good.
And afaik Slackware doesn't use /dev/mnt:
mingdao@silas:~$ mount /usb1
mingdao@silas:~$ ls -lh /dev/mnt
/bin/ls: /dev/mnt: No such file or directory
It doesn't on my boxen.
