AFAIK hal/hotplug/udev won't actually perform the automounting itself.

If you're running a GNOME desktop then it's gnome-volume-manager (gvm)
that's in charge of automounting. The other parts will only tell that
there's a new device available, then it's up to gvm to decide what to do
with it.

Software is not manufactured, it is something you write and publish.
Keep Europe free from software patents, we do not want censorship
by patent law on written works.

"Sendmail" and "make" are two well known programs that are pretty widely
regarded as being debugged into existence. That's why their command
languages are so poorly thought out and difficult to learn.  It's not
just you -- everyone finds them troublesome.
