Would it be possible for kudzu to add appropriate symbolic links,
/etc/fstab entries and /mnt points for the devices it detects?
It would be really nice if (for example) a zip drive is added to the
machine, for links from /dev/sda to /dev/zip and /dev/sda[1-4] to
/dev/zip[1-4], as well as the approprate entry in /etc/fstab and mount
point for it to end up on. Combined with a small modification to
/etc/security/console.perms (adding a wildcard '*' to the zip line) it
would allow a console user to use the zip drive without particular fuss.
Similarly links for CD burners suitable for allowing the console
permissions aquired from /etc/security/console.perms would be nice. (This
may already be done - my burner is in my 6.2 machine and is decteted as a
For normal cdrom drives the first drive works fine, (becouse its setup is
from the default configuration) but a second drive needs manual
configuration - IMHO kudzu should add the extra entries and mount points if
This same concept could be spread to other storage devices, it would be
neat to get my new (or new-to-this-computer) hard disk automaticly
allocated a mount-point, if not automaticly mounted.

This is fixed in kudzu-0.96-1 with the addition of the updfstab program.
