I have a problem with an udev-rule. i simply want to mount a usb stick when it is plugged in. the rule correctly executes a script which mkdir the mount point and then calls mount. everything seems to work, but the stick is never mounted. if I execute the script manually everything works and i can access the stick


KERNEL=="sd?1", SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ACTION=="add", SYMLINK+="adminStick", RUN+="/usr/bin/logger Start mounting", RUN+="/usr/local/bin/mountAdmin"



/usr/bin/logger Creating /media/adminStick 
mkdir -p /media/adminStick

/usr/bin/logger Trying to mount adminStick
mount /dev/adminStick /media/adminStick

journal -f:

Feb 28 19:27:25 alarmpi logger[3691]: Start mounting
Feb 28 19:27:25 alarmpi logger[3693]: Creating /media/adminStick
Feb 28 19:27:25 alarmpi logger[3695]: Trying to mount adminStick
