Re: Automount without desktop

Hi all,

I'm finding all the repetitive mount/unmount operations
I do to be somewhat tedious.

Can I get some reasonable automount functionality without
installing a heavy-weight desktop? I currently use only
light stuff: stumpwm or fvwm.

I imagine I could write scripts to do it myself, but
it seems impossible that someone else could not have
done it before.

As I write, I'm thinking of something simpleminded, like
creating UUID fstab entries for each device, and having a
cron job 'mount -a' everyone every 10 second or so.

Are you talking about automounting CDs and DVDs or something else? I find 'autofs' very practical. Although I use it for automounting network shares via ssh, it would probably work as well, or even better, with local drives. There are quite some HowTos on the Net too.
