Description Aleksandar Milivojevic 2006-09-12 12:05:19 EDT
Description of problem:
I've just noticed that /usr/sbin/fstab-sync is no longer part of hal package. 
Hence, /etc/fstab is not automatically updated for devices such as CDROMs and
floppy drives, and no mount points under /media are created.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Comment 1 John (J5) Palmieri 2006-09-12 13:17:39 EDT
We don't update fstab as it was not really the correct solution.  Instead we now
use gnome-mount which uses hal's mounting facilities.  
Comment 2 Aleksandar Milivojevic 2006-09-12 14:21:57 EDT
Hm, OK, gnome-mount would be for desktop systems.  How about text-only systems?
Comment 3 John (J5) Palmieri 2006-09-12 14:36:49 EDT
gnome-mount works perfectly fine for text based systems.  It might have a
dependency on gconf but that is about it.  All gnome mount does is call into a
D-Bus service provided by HAL so one could write a quick script using dbus-send.
You can also fallback to adding an entry into fstab.
