Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 25529
Better handling of removable devices
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:31:03 EDT
I wish not having to type mount/umount for viewing a CD-ROM, floppy, ...
Although Redhat includes autofs, the solution is far from perfect: the user
cannot eject the CD-ROM if a program is in it; and there is a timeout.
The right solution is "supermount". With supermount using a removable
device is transparent to the user. The user can go to /mnt/cdrom and change
the CD-ROM without leaving this directory. Mandrake is integrating
supermount into its distribution. I think Redhat should do the same.
Not for this release...
