Hi, I'm trying to prevent SD/CF from automatically mounting when I plug them in. I have had a look in fstab but from my limited knowledge it is not obvious exactly how to prevent devices/filesytems from automatically mounting themselves. I assumed the fstab "noauto" mount option would do the trick, but it doesn't appear to prevent auto detect/mount. Perhaps there is some other process included with the pdaXrom distro (seperate from fstab system) which is monitoring interface ports and mounting??? I'm not sure...
for example, I would like to be able to plug my wifi adapter or SD card in but NOT have it automatically mount, so that I can CHOOSE exactly when I need it mounted and so save a little battery power for the moments when they are actually used. At the moment, whenever I plug my wifi card, I have to unmount it with OpenBox's SD/CF/USB monitor plugin (pdaxrom taskbar). I sometimes forget it has been automatically mounted by which time a large portion of my battery has been used unnecessarily!!
I'm a linux noob, but I'm sure if someone points me in the right direction I can figure the rest out. I'm just not sure where to begin.
