    Default SmartMedia question

    I have a usb Uno SmartMedia card reader and Redhat 9

    I would like to be able to mount it the same way I mount a floppy or
    cdrom.

    I have done the following:

    1) mkdir /mnt/sm

    2) added the following line to the /etc/fstab
    /dev/sda1 /mnt/sm auto noauto,owner 0 0

    Note: /dev/sda1 is the correct dev.

    At this point I can only mount /mnt/sm as root.

    I would like to be able to mount /mnt/sm as the current logged in user.

    Things I have tried:

    I have tried adding a group and making /dev/sda1 rw for that group
    then making the users a member of the new group. This did not work.

    I made the current user the owner of /dev/sda1. This allowed me to mount
    /mnt/sm as the current user but this is not a good solution.

    I have also noticed some things I do not understand.

    1) I notice that /dev/fd0 is owned by the current user.

    2) Before I turned off kudzu with chkconfig my entries for /mnt/sm in
    the /etc/fstab would disappear and my dir /mnt/sm would also disappear.

    Can anybody direct me in the right direction such that I will be able
    to mount my usb Uno SmartMedia card reader as a normal user?

    Thank you.

    Yep, try reading the line and then read 'man mount'

    From the manpage for mount;

    users Allow every user to mount and unmount the file system.
    This option implies the options noexec, nosuid, and nodev (unless
    overridden by subsequent options, as in the option line
    users,exec,dev,suid).

     

    Understandable, if the device is not present during the boot process kudzu
    will remove the entry. Try looking at the /etc/updfstab.conf.default file
    and make changes, carefully, if desired.

    Thank you, Your suggestion, as I'm sure you know, works just fine. The
    man pages are a great help but I do some times find myself over whelmed
    with their content.

    Thanks for this insight I'll look into understanding the
    /etc/updfstab.conf.default file.
