mounting usb devices consistently
I have a usb sd card reader a usb cruzer mini jump drive and a usb cf
card reader. I have created mount points for them as /cfcard /sdrive
and /jdrive. AT the time I set them up this corresponded
to /dev/sdb1, /dev/sdc1 and /dev/sdd1. So /etc/fstab looks like this:
<file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump>
/dev/sdb1 /cfcard auto defaults,user,umask=000 0 0
/dev/sdc1 /sdcard auto defaults,user,umask=000 0
/dev/sdd1 /jdrive auto defaults,user,umask=000 0 0
My problem is that when I plugin say the jumpdrive it getsassigned
arbitrarily (or so it seems) to either sdb1 sdc1 or sdd1. I would like
to somehow make sure that each physical device always gets the same
device name. SO the sdcard is always /dev/sdc1 and the cf card is
always /dev/sdb1. Regardless of the order in which I plug them in.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
