When I insert an SD card into the card reader, HAL detects it and an icon shows up on the desktop.
However, when using VL-HOT, nothing happens.
I tailed dmesg and /var/log/messages and nothing shows up when the card is inserted.
I tried to mount it manually. There is an sdb device.
mount -t vfat /dev/sdb /mnt/sd
it gives me the wrong fs or bad superblock message (I tried other fs types as well to no avail).
It is only then that the VL-HOT icon show up on the desktop. The device is sdb1, but it is only created when I try the mount command manually.
Any ideas about why this happens and how to automatize it?
I suspect my girlfriend wouldn't like to type commands in the terminal, and I don't feel like running HAL all the time just for the odd SD card.
