I have a FreeBSD 4.9 system; I am also running KDE... I'm building this system for my son (college student) who has been (until now) a Windoze user :( I'm trying to set this sytem up so that he'll be able to use it with a minimum of calls to tech support (me). One of the issues I am struggling with is how to make the cd-rw & cd-rom devices usable without requiring him to start a root shell and mount/umount these devices.
There appear to be some KDE applications that support this, but they must be started with root permissions. I figured automounting cd's must be a "FAQ", so I researched the FreeBSD website, and Greg Lehey's book to find "the answer". Unfortuantely, I found very little info. The only good source of "how-to" on this subject was a rather dated article that described configuring amd to do this: http://www.daemonnews.org/200202/automounting.html The dearth of sources of info on this lead me to wonder if automounting the cd drives is something that should be done at all. So - my questions are: 1) Should I automount cd's? 2) What is the "best way" to allow ordinary users to mount cd's?
