I've managed to get Arch up and running, save for some minor snags.
How do non-root users gain access to devices (floppy, cdrom, etc) in "computer" on the gnome desktop? Only filesystem & network icons are displayed. (All devices are present for root user)
Mount/umounting the devices for non-root users from the terminal is ok.
# # /etc/fstab: static file system information # # <file system> <dir> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> none /proc proc defaults 0 0 none /dev/pts devpts defaults 0 0 none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0 tmpfs /tmp tmpfs defaults 0 0 sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0 usbdevfs /proc/bus/usb usbdevfs defaults 0 0 /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /mnt/CD-ROM iso9660 ro,user,noauto,unhide 0 0 #/dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /mnt/DVD udf ro,user,noauto,unhide 0 0 /dev/floppy/0 /mnt/Floppy vfat user,noauto,sync 0 0 /dev/sda1 /mnt/USBdrive vfat user,noauto,sync /dev/discs/disc0/part5 swap swap defaults 0 0 /dev/discs/disc0/part1 / reiserfs defaults 0 0 /dev/discs/disc0/part6 /home reiserfs defaults 0 0
Any help is appreciated.
Heh, got it to work.
Gave read permissions for fstab to "users" group. I can see the devices in gnome now.
Thanks for posting your solution kryo. I've been trying to solve the same problem since seeing your post. In fact, it was your post that made me realize something was missing.
I'm just glad it works now.
