VL-Hot & HAL...I don't see the point.
« on: May 05, 2008, 05:45:10 am »
I've tried both VL-Hot & HAL, and neither seems to work very well for me.

In fact, I would rather just mount my devices myself, so I know exactly where they are and what they are called.

Am I just missing something here?

vl-hot mount devices in /mnt/vl-hot
I am not a hal user, but I think it uses /media
I think if you plug many devices at once and you want them mounted in the same place you have to make custom udev rules for them. Otherwise they will get a name as you plug them (for example sdb, sdc, etc.)

This might be helpful:

I know hal can do something through xml files but that is all what I know about it.
Sorry I cant be more helpful, I have only one flash-drive so cd /mnt/v<tab><tab><tab> works for me :)
