Hello,

I'm facing an issue with the automatic mounting of external usb drives via usbmount.
The drives themseves don't seem to have any issues as I can mount them manualy.

Please note that this behaviour was introduced by the installation of the gtkpod and underlying dependecies, and that before this operation usb auto mount worked perfectly ( desinstalling the packages did not fix the issue ).

So currently, when I connect an usb key to my laptop, I get the following messages in the syslog :

I checked and was unable to find /lib/udev/vol_id on my drive. I don't know what this binary is nor how to install it.

If anyone has any info on this binary or ides on how to solve the usbmount issue, I'd be realy gratfull.

Thanks,

PS , my setup info :

- Ubuntu 9.10 desktop
- usbmount v 0.0.17
