USB device mounting via 'fstab'

OK, ... just wondering which option, below, is appropriate/preferred for Arch using USB file systems in 'fstab':

#1 

none    /dev/pts        devpts  gid=5,mode=620    0    0

#2 

usbfs    /proc/bus/usb    usbfs defaults                0    0

#3 

usbdevfs    /proc/bus/usb    usbdevfs defaults        0    0

Thanx.

Re: USB device mounting via 'fstab'

I am also asking about the same question not knowing how to mount USB devices with fstab. With standard code (/dev/sda1 /mnt/my-usb auto default 0 0) didn't work. Currently I am using this code in /etc/rc.local

if [ -a /dev/sda ]; then
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/my-usb
fi

Re: USB device mounting via 'fstab'

Sorry for the late answer smile.

marin_linuxer:
This is for usbfs (aka info for usb devices under /proc/bus/usb dir) :

none  /proc/bus/usb  usbfs  defaults   0 0

rasat:
make sure you have usb-storage, sd_mod in your /etc/rc.conf, then add the line you mention in /etc/fstab, changing 'auto' with the actual fs of your usb device

Re: USB device mounting via 'fstab'

'usbfs' works with both 2.4 & 2.6 kernels IMHO.
