Mounting objects more easily....


I'm using Slack9.1, and if there was one thing I liked about RH7.3 over Slack9.1 was the fact that when I popped a CD in, it automatically mounted it without me having to give any commands. Same goes for floppies. And when I unmounted, it automatically ejected either the floppy or the CD-ROM. Well, is there any way I can do this with Slack9.1? And I have a USB Key/Flash drive/Pen drive, is there any way to have the object automatically be mounted when I put it in, and unmounted when I pull it out, without damaging anything? Or would I have to manually unmount before I pull it out?

Automount: When you attempt to access a mount point, the device gets mounted there. Look at www.tldp.org for a howto on this.

I use the gkrellm where i can click on some buttons to mount/unmount drives. There are several other dockapps that can be used for that purpose, Gnome and Kde also have one for their respective panel i believe.

There is also something called supermount and sepermount-ng.

I think you can set the time when it automatically unmounts. Take a look at the howto: http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/doc...Automount.html
Someone posted nice instructions here too... search.

See, I'm thinking of how it was when I installed RH7.x, and when I popped in a disk, it mounted automatically, then when I unmounted, it ejected. Same thing happened with the floppies. When I popped them in, they automatically mounted, and when I unmounted them, they'd eject.
