I've got ROX-filer setup with icewm in a minimal Debian Etch system. I am trying to get automounting with pmount and ivman going, and it almost works. I've got a couple lines in my icewm startup script that makes sure that ivman is running as user. I have told ROX-filer to use pmount and pumount to mount and unmount stuff. My USB drives work as expected. However, CDROM behavior isn't optimal.
When I stick a CD in the drive, the "mount-dot" on the 'cdrom0' icon in /media doesn't turn green (it remains grey). If I try to browse the CD with the 'cdrom' symlink, I can. But the 'cdrom0' mount-dot remains grey. I can eject the CD using the 'cdrom0' icon without problems.
On the other hand, if after sticking a CD in the drive I try to browse it directly with the 'cdrom0' icon, I get a message telling me that "/dev/hdb is already mounted on /media/cdrom0. Mount failed. (Seems to be mounted now anyway)" And then the "mount-dot" turns green.
