Changing UDEV persistent naming schemes

Hi all,

I've been reading for many hours on the subject of udev rules, and seem to be having a problem in finding the exact information I am after.
(Before anyone asks .. Yes, I have read the stickied thread at the top of this forum; but [Moderators Request]; it is in dire need of cleaning up, as it is heavily kludged with unrelated material).

Q. Am I correct is saying that udev by default labels it's /dev's by uuid?

If that is true, how exactly do i go about changing udev to label my /dev's by-label as the default scheme, instead of by uuid?

[The reason I am looking at changing the default naming convention is an experiment to overcome a kde system://media issue I am working on in another post on this forum].

I am attempting to make my drives mount in KDE as:
system:/media/<label> , rather than

If possible, It would be preferable to change the default naming convention completely via udev, without having to use static fstab routines.

What I have been looking at so far is editing:

persistent storage links: /dev/{disk,tape}/{by-label,by-id,by-uuid,by-path,by-name}
Is the correct method of changing the default naming rules a simple matter of commenting out the sections I dont want to use? (e.g. by-path),
Do I rewrite the order of the entries in the file? so that the by-label section is above the by by-uuid section?

What is the correct method of doing this?

Clarification on this will be greatly appreciated

On my box running Slackware 12.0 and KDE, the removable media gets auto-mounted as /media/<LABEL> ... this is the default behaviour. How did your box start behaving differently?

and from a diff LQ post you could modify HAL

2) I have seen your other post. There is another way but a bit messy.

pretend your iso is /x/movie.iso

use root to make a permanent folder ....mkdir /movie

in a shell use root to

mount -o loop /x/movie.iso /movie

navigate to it and see if movie player will execute it from appropiate area

Hello Alien Bob and aus9, Thanks for your replies.


Alien Bob (Eric), when I mount devices in KDE, they show up differently in certain areas.

For instance, say I mount /dev/hda7 which is a partition called ISOs;

Navigating in konqueror from /, in the media directory it shows up as: /media/ISOs.
but in KDE Storage media, it shows up as labelled ISOs, but opening it shows it mounted as

What I am trying to overcome is this inconsistency within the KDE system:/media/
area as this is causing problems with my KDE servicemenu's.
(that's what my other post is all about).

I prefer to be able to use the system:/media section in KDE, as it has my drives nicely labelled and is much easier and more direct than navigating via < / > ... then .. </media> ... then <where i want to go>

I hope this clarifies what I am trying to do and the reasoning behind it?


aus9, thanks

I'll try to get this system:/media thing working as a priority first before I try the other method.
Thank you for the URL link, I'll study it and see if I can get any beneficial changes.


Thank you both again

Hi All,

In an attempt to get KDE's system:/media to reflect my partition labels rather than the /dev's they are mounted on, I have been adjusting /etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev.rules.

The result of my changes are that in /dev/disk directory, I now have only the 'by-label' subdirectory with all of my partitions correctly listed there.

However, when I use system:/media to mount the partition icon [ISOs], the drive mounts ok; but still shows the path as system:/media/hda7

Am I missing something here??

How do I get KDE system:/media to use labels in the path instead of devs?

What I want to be able to achieve is that when I use KDE system:/media to mount the partition icon [ISOs], the drive mounts using the path system:/media/ISOs (not system:/media/hda7)

Can anyone assist please.

Following is my /etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev.rules file, can anyone suggest any alterations that may get the result I am after.

# There are a number of modifiers that are allowed to be used in some of the

I don't have any advice -- I'd just like to confirm the presence of the strange bug (mounts as /dev/sdb1, for example, through system:/ or when mounting/opening the drive in Konqueror through KDE's HAL popup). I have a servicemenu of my own that acts similarly, but haven't had time to look into a fix.
