BTW, I let udev mount the pluggable devices automatically.
I doubt udev is the party that mounts it. udev creates the device in
/dev, I don't think it can mount things.
Yes, you are correct.
AFAIU on GNOME this is what happens when a storage device is plugged in:
1. udev creates a device node in /dev
2. hal is informed about the new device
3. gnome-volume-manager gets informed by hal and calls pmount to mount
Yes, that is what happens. Nice explanation. I was being sloppy with my
one liner which was more or less meant to a 'slang' for the above steps.
