LXer: Today in 'Latest Ubuntu Karmic fails': USB drives automount with UUID instead o

Published at LXer:

Normally a change in the automounting of USB drives in Ubuntu wouldn't be a big deal. But in my case I've been using shell scripts to back up my Ubuntu box to USB drives via rsync. And before Karmic, those USB drives automounted with the name "disk," and they'd be at /media/disk/ in the filesystem. Perfect for my shell script to target for the backup. Now for some reason those drives are automounting not with the name "disk" but with the unique UUID number for the given device. At first this was bad, but after I modified my scripts, I actually see some wisdom in what started out as just another Karmic fail.
