Description of problem:

I use Xfce, I plugged in my pendrive into USB connector, and mount pendrive's filesystem with xfce4-places-plugin.

I see my files on /run/media/$USER, but don't see on /media. /media directory is empty.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

/media is empty.

Expected results:

/media symlinked /run/media.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2012-05-07 15:20:00 EDT
This is expected, see:

3.1.4. Removable media changes mount points
Removable media mounted in the user's session, such as hot-plugged USB drives, will be mounted in a user-specific directory. Mount points are provisioned in /run/media/$USER/ with permissions allowing $USER exclusive access.
Comment 2 rvcsaba 2012-05-07 17:24:26 EDT
OK, but /media not linked to /run/media. Why? I remove /media:

rmdir /media
rmdir: failed to remove `/media': Device or resource busy

I don't change empty /media directory to /media -> /run/media symlink.
Comment 3 rvcsaba 2012-05-07 18:19:53 EDT
I can't change...
