mount cd audio with pmount and cdfs

I a am an slack 12.1 with blackbox
I a problem with cd-rom :
I would like automounting all media (usb, cd-rom, dvd, cd audio etc)
I allready had got dbus-1.1.20 dbus-glib-0.74 dbus-python dbus-qt3 hal-0.5.
10hal-info-20080317 audiofile-0.2.6
I don't have gnome or kde system
I put ivman-0.6.14 pmount-0.9.17 cdfs-2.6.23
ivman is daemonize on the user id when x start
That's ok for usb and most cd-rom, dvd
but I would like cd audio to appear on the file system (with cdfs)
because I don't want any auto exec application (like some media player)
I want let the user choose what I want to do with the media (rip, play etc)
I don't want the user to use su root
I don't want to break the security of mount
I just want he can see the files on /media
I put the rule on /home/user/.ivman/IvmConfigActions.xml :
<!-- liste CDs with audio tracks -->
<ivm:Match name="hal.volume.disc.has_audio" value="true">
<!-- liste CDs with audio tracks -->
<ivm:Match name="hal.volume.disc.has_audio" value="true">
<ivm:Option name="exec" value="mkdir /media/cdmusique" />
<ivm:Option name="exec" value="pmount -t cdfs '$hal.block.device
$' /media/cdrmusique" />
but I have the echo error on ivman :Erreur : nom de systcme de fichiers inva
lide 'cdfs' (name of filesystem invalid : 'cdfs').
that's the same on a term.
But on root I can do mount -t cdfs /dev/hdd /media/cdmusique, it's ok
I though there is a problem with hal :
lshal say :
volume.fstype = '' (string)
so I create a new rule on /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/20thirdparty/
10-cdfs-policy.fdi :
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<deviceinfo version="0.2">
<match name="volume.disc.type" value="cd_rom">
<match name="volume.disc.has_audio" value="true">
<match name="volume.disc.has_data" value="false">
<match name="volume.disc.has_audio" value="true">
<match name="volume.disc.has_data" value="false">
<merge key="volume.policy.mount_filesystem" type="string">cdfs</m
<merge key="volume.fstype" type="string">cdfs</merge>
<merge key="volume.ignore" type="bool">false</merge>
but there is no effect
I thing my hal rule is wrong but I thing too there is not the problem
Do you how to do pmount recognize the filesystem ?
thanks for any help
