IVMan Automounter in Gentoo

You can even control the mounting of drives. However, sometimes you may just want the system to mount it itself. I’ve read that many people were having problems with supermount and it is no longer mainstream.</p> <p>This is where IVMan comes into play. Submount was removed from the Gentoo Portage as of 2nd of Janurary, 2007. As long as my system mounts a USB stick at when I plug it in, I’m a happy camper.</p> <p>In order to use ivman, the system must have the following installed for it to work correctly:</p> <ul> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0in">udev</p> </li> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0in">hal</p> </li> <li> <p style="margin-bottom: 0in">dbus</p> </li> <li>pmount</li> </ul> <p>This is a quick and dirty way of how I set up ivman to work on my system. I use Gnome, so if you use Gnome as well, you may want to make sure that <strong>coldplug</strong> and <strong>gnome-volume-manager</strong> is installed.</p> <h3>Code</h3> <p># emerge -av ivman</p> <p># emerge –oneshot glibc linux-headers</p> <p># emerge coldplug gnome-volume-manager</p> <p># rc-update add ivman default</p> <p># rc-update add hald default</p> <p># rc-update add dbus default</p> <p># /etc/init.d/ivman start</p> <h3>Configuration</h3> <p>Make sure that the users that need the ability to mount devices automatically are added to the plugdev group.</p> <p>Chances are that if you plug in a USB flash drive, it’s going to tell you that you do not have permission to view the contents of the drive. Since whenever I plugged in a UFD, it would always get assigned /dev/sdd1, I just added the following line to my /etc/fstab file:</p> <p>/dev/sdd1 /media/sdd1 auto users,rw 0 0</p> </div><!-- .entry --> <div class="post-tags clr"> </div> <section id="related-posts" class="clr"> <h3 class="theme-heading related-posts-title"> <span class="text">You Might Also Like</span> </h3> <div class="oceanwp-row clr"> <article class="related-post clr col span_1_of_3 col-1 post-28 post type-post status-publish format-standard hentry category-gentoo category-linux entry"> <h3 class="related-post-title"> <a href="https://www.paulslinuxbox.net/blog/linux/gentoo-on-dallas" title="Gentoo on Dallas" rel="bookmark">Gentoo on Dallas</a> </h3><!-- .related-post-title --> <time class="published" datetime="2007-09-28T15:29:39+00:00"><i class="icon-clock"></i>Fri, 28-09-2007 : 39</time> </article><!-- .related-post --> <article class="related-post clr col span_1_of_3 col-2 post-30 post type-post status-publish format-standard hentry category-fedora category-gentoo category-linux entry"> <h3 class="related-post-title"> <a href="https://www.paulslinuxbox.net/blog/linux/remounting-root-fs-in-rw" title="Remounting Root FS in RW" rel="bookmark">Remounting Root FS in RW</a> </h3><!-- .related-post-title --> <time class="published" datetime="2007-09-12T12:35:06+00:00"><i class="icon-clock"></i>Wed, 12-09-2007 : 37</time> </article><!-- .related-post --> <article class="related-post clr col span_1_of_3 col-3 post-23 post type-post status-publish format-standard hentry category-gentoo category-linux entry"> <h3 class="related-post-title"> <a href="https://www.paulslinuxbox.net/blog/linux/gentoo-cd-burning" title="Gentoo CD Burning" rel="bookmark">Gentoo CD Burning</a> </h3><!-- .related-post-title --> <time class="published" datetime="2007-06-16T09:52:25+00:00"><i class="icon-clock"></i>Sat, 16-06-2007 : 24</time> </article><!-- .related-post --> </div><!-- .oceanwp-row --> </section><!-- .related-posts --> </article> </div><!-- #content --> </div><!-- #primary --> <aside id="right-sidebar" class="sidebar-container widget-area sidebar-primary" itemscope="itemscope" itemtype="http://schema.org/WPSideBar"> <div id="right-sidebar-inner" class="clr"> </div><!-- #sidebar-inner --> </aside><!-- #right-sidebar --> </div><!-- #content-wrap --> </main><!-- #main --> <footer id="footer" class="site-footer" itemscope="itemscope" itemtype="http://schema.org/WPFooter"> <div id="footer-inner" class="clr"> <div id="footer-widgets" class="oceanwp-row clr"> <div class="container"> <div class="footer-box span_1_of_4 col col-1"> </div><!-- .footer-one-box --> <div class="footer-box span_1_of_4 col col-2"> </div><!-- .footer-one-box --> <div class="footer-box span_1_of_4 col col-3 "> </div><!-- .footer-one-box --> <div class="footer-box span_1_of_4 col col-4"> </div><!-- .footer-box --> </div><!-- .container --> </div><!-- #footer-widgets --> <div id="footer-bottom" class="clr no-footer-nav"> <div id="footer-bottom-inner" class="container clr"> <div id="copyright" class="clr" role="contentinfo"> Copyright - OceanWP Theme by Nick </div><!-- #copyright --> </div><!-- #footer-bottom-inner --> </div><!-- #footer-bottom --> </div><!-- #footer-inner --> </footer><!-- #footer --> </div><!-- #wrap --> </div><!-- #outer-wrap --> <a id="scroll-top" href="#"><span class="fa fa-angle-up"></span></a> <div id="sidr-close"> <a href="#" class="toggle-sidr-close"> <i class="icon icon-close"></i><span class="close-text">Close Menu</span> </a> </div> <div id="mobile-menu-search" class="clr"> <form method="get" action="https://www.paulslinuxbox.net/blog/" class="mobile-searchform"> <input type="search" name="s" autocomplete="off" placeholder="Search" /> <button type="submit" class="searchform-submit"> <span class="icon icon-magnifier"></span> </button> </form> </div><!-- .mobile-menu-search --> <script type="text/javascript" src="https://www.paulslinuxbox.net/blog/wp-content/cache/minify/5d11b.js"></script> <script type='text/javascript'> /* <![CDATA[ */ var oceanwpLocalize = {"isRTL":"","menuSearchStyle":"drop_down","sidrSource":"#sidr-close, #site-navigation, #mobile-menu-search","sidrDisplace":"1","sidrSide":"left","sidrDropdownTarget":"icon","verticalHeaderTarget":"icon","customSelects":".woocommerce-ordering .orderby, .cart-collaterals .cart_totals table select, #dropdown_product_cat, .widget_categories select, .widget_archive select, .single-product .variations_form .variations select"}; /* ]]> */ </script> <script type="text/javascript" src="https://www.paulslinuxbox.net/blog/wp-content/cache/minify/cc0a5.js"></script> <!--[if lt IE 9]> <script type='text/javascript' src='https://www.paulslinuxbox.net/blog/wp-content/themes/oceanwp/assets/js//third/html5.min.js?ver=1.4.2'></script> <![endif]--> </body> </html> <!-- Performance optimized by W3 Total Cache.
