Go ahead, beat me up for being at FC2...
My #1 summer project is remedying my predecessor's 'oversight'.
But until I do... how do I enable a user to use his USB drive on his
FC2 linux PC?
I still run FC2, too. Upgraded kernel (the various pieces of the USB
stuff compiled - driver, modules, etc.). Several things disabled.
I Run ICE, a lightweight windows manager instead of GNOME or KDE
(no automounting of devices).
I am running udev (puting devices in the /udev directory and not
handling the /dev entries).
When I mount a flash thumb driver, in a moment or so, two new entries
appears in /udev/
(your mileage may vary).
uba, the drive and uba1, the partition.
As mount is smart enought to mount it without being told the
filetype (it is just vfat), a simple:
mount /udev/uba1 mount_point
works and when it is done with
(I mount and use is as "root" for bringing some files along,
so watch permissions.)
