If you want the partitions to be automounted, the devices should be
created with the "hal" group.

I'v added to te file /etc/udev/rules.d/020_permissions.rules the lines:
## MMC devices
BUS=="mmc", KERNEL=="mmcblk*", GROUP="hal"
and now I get:
brw-rw----  1 root hal 254, 0 2005-11-06 18:00 /dev/mmcblk0
brw-rw----  1 root hal 254, 1 2005-11-06 18:00 /dev/mmcblk0p1
exactly the same as my pendrive:
brw-r-----  1 root hal 8, 0 2005-11-06 18:00 /dev/sda
brw-r-----  1 root hal 8, 1 2005-11-06 18:00 /dev/sda1
that is regularly mounted

but still the MMC doens't get mounted!

What more must I do to get the card mounted?

What happens when you 'pmount -d /dev/mmcblk0p1'?

and the device is not mounted.

I noticed that pmount reports that the device is not removable (that is
incorrect). How can I mark it removable?

Why, when the device is in fstab and pmount succedes it doesn't get

I ran into this problem this morning: are you using kernel 2.6.12 or later? Since moving off 2.6.8, I have needed a newer libsysfs in order to pmount external usb hard drives.

libsysfs1 1.3.0-2 from unstable does the job for me. I was tipped off by
