/mnt?

The article states that the mount point directory for a device should be off of /mnt. However, the way mine works is that it also has /media, and mounted drives are off of that directory. For instance, the desktop icon for the floppy drive is /media/floppy. Perhaps that possibility should be considered as well here. - KitchM 20:27, 21 October 2010 (EDT)

Create udev rule

udevadm test outputs the following message: 'NAME="%k" is ignored, because it breaks kernel supplied names, please remove it from /etc/udev/rules.d/00.rules:x' page should probably be updated to reflect that.

additionally suggest this method won't work for devices which have internal memory and expansion slots for micro-sd cards etc (ie such a device might bring up /dev/sdf *and* /dev/sdg).

NAME="%k" does not make much sense. Anyway, it is not mentioned in udev (redirect target of the main page). As for the second part - such devices would appear as parent- and child-devices, there should be no problem. Closing. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 17:32, 29 August 2013 (UTC)
