Automounting problem

Hey guys, I just installed suse 10 on my main machine, and have noticed some issues regarding the automounting system. I am decent with linux now, and decided to laze away from my slackware and try suse for that warm GUI feel. I just installed it on an older machine (dell gx400) with great results.

My machine is having issues with the automounting of external storage devices. Normally, when I plug in a memory key or ipod, suse will let me know, pop it up, add it to the "My Computer" section etc. Now, however, nothing happens. (Actually, it never worked) So I tried to mount my devices from the command line, and it worked just fine. This is a stock install of suse 10 pro. Any ideas of what to look for in terms of errors?

The only things out of place I could find were:
- During shutdown, it says it can't find the sysfs mount point a dozen or so times (doesn't stop anything, just produces the error a bunch)
- When I put in a cdrom and clicked on the icon in My Computer, it says only root can mount... as root, it works just fine

Thanx for any help in advance!

Hopefully you're running SuSEwatcher which notifies you of updates. Auto-mounting was redone in 10.0 and it had some quirks at first that updates seem to have fixed.
