A little while ago my usb drives stopped auto mounting. It might have been after an update but not sure where to look.
I have been manually mounting them as root and that is a pain. Is there maybe even something better that I can have more control over the mounting? I would like a small program that would let me mount and unmount drives with one click to a folder in
/mnt/(device name) with user read/write permissions.
Udev is kind of a gray area/black magic to me. I have tried 100 times to figure it out but I can't help but think there should be a much simpler way. Such as in Puppy Linux how you can open the mount menu and mount/unmount each device. Though every thing in Puppy runs as root so it is easier.
I am running Gentoo on AMD64 (amdfam10).
One side question, How can you tell which
/dev/... files are currently representing actual devices?
Here is the last 30 lines fresh after plugging in a usb drive
