ivman -> pmount problem


Hi,

I use Ubuntu (Intrepid Ibex),
with Fluxbox (*without Kde or Gnome ecc*).

I'd like to automount my devices,
as I've done in the past,
for this reason I've always used,
successfully, ivman.

On Intrepid Ibex, ivman simply
doesn't work at all, also after
trying to tune it, as Gentoo
tutorial advised.

I hope someone has an idea
on how to make it working,
'cause manual mounting is
really a loss of time on a desktop machine.

So I think it's not a ivman bug,
but a pmount bug, in fact ivman uses pmount and
it (pmount) does not recognises usb disks and pendrives as
"block device". Anyway I'm sure pmount worked correctly in
the past, because of ivman worked in the past!


Please help,

Hi,

my opinion on pmount bug seems to be correctly,
ivman debug mode confirms my opinion.

Hi,

I've also read about launchpad bugs,
but it seems to there is nor solutions,
nor hacks or workaround to make it working
in Intrepid.

It's quite frustrating :-(

Thank you in advance
