/run/media or /media [SOLVED]

hey, it's seems that after certain updates, mounting a removal drive changes from /media to /run/media.

Is there a way to stop this or am I doing something wrong? I use a removal drive for my audio work and when I launched Ardour today and the latest Syu update, all my files were gone. I opened Dolphin and noticed that the removal drive is now mounted at /run/media.

In the past, I would reboot and that fixes it. This time it's not. I can change to /run/media no problem, it's just the constant editing when that happens.

I have to change where my downloads go, keep editing my makepkg.conf, etc.

Any thoughts?

udisks uses /media, udisks2 uses /run/media/<username>. KDE 4.10 switched to udisks2.

AFAIK, this is hard coded and cannot be easily changed. If you want it mounted somewhere else, you'll have to do it manually.

thanx Scimmia, I'm cool with either as long as it stays with one. if it's hard coded, then I'll change all to /run/media/<username>..

I guess I'll mark solved unless others have more to add.

Its just my opinion but I don't see a reason for this especially if drives are shared between user's like CDs or usb drives.

Re: /run/media or /media [SOLVED]

It's not only the problem mounting to /run/media/$USER but setting permission to not reading for anyone. On each reboot I need to adjust the rights so that mpd can read my music library.

So if anyone has an idea how to change this strange behaviour come out with it.

I concur; this was a rude awakening to my mpd
