[SOLVED] pmount still needs HAL

I have noticed the tendency to get rid of HAL everywhere (which I’m not against), even in case of pmount. Its PKGBUILD has changed according to this aim as well (transition from 0.9.23-1 to 0.9.23-2):
1. hal has been removed from the makedepends and optdepends arrays
2. the option --disable-hal has been added to ./configure.

So far, so good, but if I remove the hal package, pmount fails:

$ pmount /dev/sr1
Error: could not create directory: No such file or directory

If I reinstall hal (the daemon doesn’t have to be run), pmount works again.

Has anybody else experienced the same?

Hi. Check if /media folder exists in your system...
if not, just do: sudo mkdir /media .

Or mount --bind /mnt /media, I find it better.

Wow, thank you! smile
That was it. I wonder why pacman removed /media while it is still part of the filesystem package too. Maybe because it was empty.
Thanks anyway!

Re: [SOLVED] pmount still needs HAL

yes, there was this whole discussion a while back about not keeping empty folders during installation/uninstallations. That was about the time it was decided to not make /media by default. The same for the cd folders as well. You no longer see the cd or cdrom folders as well.
