anyone knows here where to find a good and simple tutorial in order to name my (our) removable devices ?

Right now, all the things I found about udev rules are really non-understandable !

Hal was maybe crap (don't know and don't care !), but it was easy to mount your device with a pretty name !


Just use UAM which is mentioned in this thread :) It does mount the devices with a pretty name (like the label of the filesystem). There is no need for a tutorial, just install uam :)

It does work with every windowmanager. It just needs udev. You don't need any command line.

It depends on the filesystem. If you create e.g. fat32, just use
Code:
mkfs.vfat -n $name $device
. That is for the command line, I don't use any kind of gui, sorry :)

actually, my fat32 usb key doesn't like label like this !

A software is even saying me that "this filesystem doesn't support label"...

Sorry, I can't help you with that problem.

If I'm using vfat I'm using labels this way, and it allways worked for me with every device I tried.
