    KDE Does not automatically mount removable media


    Firstly I know it is not a problem with reading/writing the media because I can manually mount /dev/sr0 and /dev/sdb1 which are my cdrom-dvdwriter-cdwriter combo and my usb flash stick respectively with the mount command. Them I can do I/O just fine. This also affects GNOME. This is the information I have.
    Code:
    [root@localhost SecondLife_i686_1_13_2_11]# cat /etc/fstab
    /dev/sda5 / ext3 noatime 1 1
    /dev/sda6 /home ext3 defaults 1 2
    none /proc proc defaults 0 0
    none /tmp tmpfs defaults 0 0
    /dev/sda7 swap swap defaults 0 0
    [root@localhost SecondLife_i686_1_13_2_11]# dmesg | tail -n 25

    sdb: Write Protect is off

    sd 2:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg2 type 0
    usb-storage: device scan complete
    So the system is at least detecting the usb stick but the cd drive produces no such messages.

    I don't know about the optical drive, but automount worked for me after I installed udev and hal.

    It appears to be a problem with kded.

    [root@localhost zakaqere]# kded
    DCOPClient::attachInternal. Attach failed Could not open network socket

    I tried autofs and such. I dont have any Idea how to set them up. :/

    great. now nothing is mounting auto like it's supposed to be. GNOME stopped automount. Now KDE doesn't even show the partitions under media:/.
    Nevermind. I just formatted my disk and started over. >_< Now everything works. It'll just take a couple of hours to download all of the software again. >_>
