How do I vman?

I have read Gentoo wikis guide to using Ivman (big help that was not!)

hal dbus pmount ivman are set up ... groups are set

but I need to run ivman as user ... if I run it in a terminal it just sits there (but works ok)

mounts to media just fine ...

I think I need to add it to .xinitrc but not clear on syntax

/me reads manual

Re: How do I vman?

udevinfo -a -p `udevinfo -q path -n /dev/sda` || grep SYSFS{serial}
udevinfo: option requires an argument -- p
Usage: udevinfo [-anpqrVh]
  -q TYPE  query database for the specified value:
             'name'    name of device node
             'symlink' pointing to node
             'path'    sysfs device path
             'env'     the device related imported environment
             'all'     all values

  -p PATH  sysfs device path used for query or chain
  -n NAME  node/symlink name used for query

  -r       print udev root
  -a       print all SYSFS_attributes along the device chain
  -d       print the relationship of devpath and the node name for all
           devices available in the database
  -V       print udev version
  -h       print this help text

From Arch Wiki ... tell me I'm going mad  :?

Re: How do I vman?

Ok so ivman is running ok now but udevinfo is still not working here ...

Can anyone confirm above command is correct?

udevinfo -a -p `udevinfo -q path -n /dev/sda`

TIA

Re: How do I vman?

When i run the second part by itself   :      udevinfo -q path -n /dev/sda

it gives an empty line on my system (and i do have an USB HD mounted as /dev/sda ).


Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

Re: How do I vman?

I get

udevinfo: option requires an argument -- p
Usage: udevinfo [-anpqrVh]
  -q TYPE  query database for the specified value:
             'name'    name of device node
             'symlink' pointing to node
             'path'    sysfs device path
             'env'     the device related imported environment
             'all'     all values

  -p PATH  sysfs device path used for query or chain
  -n NAME  node/symlink name used for query

  -r       print udev root
  -a       print all SYSFS_attributes along the device chain
  -d       print the relationship of devpath and the node name for all
           devices available in the database
  -V       print udev version
  -h       print this help text

Even if I point it at sda1 (mounted) .. in /media
