I recall in earlier versions of Suse, when a CD was loaded it
would be found under /media/name_of_CD, however in Suse 11 this does not
seem to be the case.

How can I have Suse automount CDs or DVDs under /media or is there another
way of doing this. I am not using X only CLI.

Thank you,


What desktop you are using?

In KDE3 it is working fine, and in KDE4 it started to work with version 4.2.


I am not using an X desktop, only a terminal command line.

This is what is strange. I can put in a CD/DVD (in this case its a CD), type
'ls /media' and nothing is found. However, if I type 'cdinfo' the contents
of the cd are listed. So this begs the question; where is the CD mounted? I
can't find it anywhere.

If someone could shed some light on this I would be most appreciative.
