Description ta2002 2016-05-06 15:53:55 UTC
There were a lot of complaints when udisks moved the location of mounted media from /media/user/ to /run/media/user/ (and some distributions even created patches to back out this change).

Starting with udisks-2.1.5 there is a compilation option (--enable-fhs-media) to return the mounts to the FHS compliant location.

I believe this should be the default option, but if that is not acceptable, at the very minimum, it should be available via a USE flag.

What are the problems with mounting things in /run instead of /media? :/

I must admit that I am a bit against changing the location each year and changing the location on each setup depending on a USE flag looks to me like a bit messy :|

I'm with Pacho here. If this needs to be changed at all, it should be done via configuration and not USE flags.

1. /run has a lot of system stuff in it (which I would rather ordinary users looking for their mounts not see at all)

2. It violates the FHS standard

I would rather it be done via configuration (just add --enable-fhs-media to the compilation options), but just wanted to present a second option.
