Re: A little script help please .... USB Keychain Drives

Can someone who is a little better at scripting than I give me some help
here on Fedora Core 3.

Using the 2.6.9 kernel I would put in a USB Keychain drive of a CD-ROM
and it would automount it without a problem.

We upgrade to 2.6.16.16 and this is now broken and thanks to the list,
we've narrowed it to the haldaemon but because of production cycles I
can't upgrade anything.  I'm stuck with what I've got.

Can someone share a script that I can run with a setuid bit to find and
mount the CD-ROM _and_ the USB Keychain drive after they're inserted?  I
can't see to get anything to work properly.

Thanks,

:b!

  Had this been an actual emergency, you would have been

ASSUMING a mount point gets created when you plug in that USB drive, you might do something similar to what I did in my backup script:

# Set the output mount (UD is USB DRIVE mount point)
export UD=/media/OTOT
#
#
# Check for drive mounted
if [ -z  $(mount | grep $UD | awk '{ print $3 }') ]; then
   mount $UD
fi
#
#
The key is having the mount point automatically created. Check /etc/fstab with the drive plugged in and go from there.
