members,

i'm creating a live cd for my linux distro based on debian of kernel verion
2.6.12smp. i'd created my installable cd with udev, hal, pmount and latest
gvm. when i insert usb i could find my icon for usb instantaneously. but
when i created livecd i could not see the icon corresponding to the  usb,
but the nautalis recognizes and opens the file browser window which shows
the fle contents in the usb(this happens bcos i'd made changes in the FHS of
policy.h of pmount). The livecd is based on the concept of the knoppix where
the contents will be loaded in the /UNIONFS/ folder on mount.

Following is the snapshot of

1. dmesg

3. mtab output

Though FHS has to be followed i'd added /UNIONFS/ string prefixed to the
directory structure provided in the policy.h of the pmount and made the usb
to mount.

my problem is i like to know why gvm is not recognizing the usb and
displaying the icon on the desktop.

Thanks in advance.
