Udev, disk, disk1, rules and udevinfo


I know we are supposed to be able to manage without having to add any udev rules. A couple of things have been irritating me:
  1. Some of my drives are mounted in media with a specific name to the mount point. Others are just labelled disk, disk1 etc
  2. External ext3 drives are mounted so that only root has write access to the root of the external drive.

I thought I would try and puzzle my way through the udev rules to understand what is going on but the udevinfo command
does not appear to be recognised. Has udevinfo beeen replaced?

You need to use udevadm now. See, e.g. this post.

Thanks. The rules show

Quote:
KERNEL=="sd*[!0-9]", ATTR{removable}=="1", GROUP="plugdev"
but /dev/sdc1 is shown as root@disk and /media/disk is root@root

And why is one external drive recognised as FREECOM HDD and another just as disk?

I'm not sure about this, I'm afraid (especially since I don't use HAL, which may be responsible for your problem 2.).
