X reverting back to /Volumes mount point
Authored by: bjd14 on Feb 19, '02 02:43:50PM

Sometimes when I reboot X reverts to the old mounting scheme. Of course, I can eject the disk and remount it on the /Users point or whatever. But it's annoying.

I've found that it helps if you alter the permissions of your custom mount points to be identical to that of the standard mount points (ie, /Volumes/<your disk>).

For me,:
% ls -l
at the /Volumes directory gives me:
drwxrwxrwx 1 ben wheel 16384 Dec 31 1979 ZIP-100

so, i ran chmod on the /Users directory which i'm using as a mount point for my disk with the user directories on it.
chmod a+rwx /Users

i also did a chgrp for good measure:
chgrp wheel /Users

of course, all this after su'ing.

X reverting back to /Volumes mount point

Me too. I applied your suggestions as to volume perms, but still sporadically get what should be my /Users volume mounted to /Volumes when rebooting. Haven't found the problem yet, still researching. Anyone else...?
