patch (5.12 KB, text/plain)

Description Tom Gundersen 2013-03-19 15:09:46 UTC
Created attachment 76756 [details]

Reference: http://www.mail-archive.com/devkit-devel@lists.freedesktop.org/msg01304.html

The attached patch introduced /run/media/{private,shared} and moves /run/media/* into the former and /media/* into the latter.

The main benefit of the patch is to unify the behavior of shared and private mounts (in particular they are now all guaranteed to be on the same tmpfs).

Distributions/admins who want backwards compatibility can turn /media into a symlink, others might just drop it altogether for a cleaner rootfs.

The new /run/media/private folder is introduced in order to avoid namespaces clashes. This should not be a problem, as its location is not meant to be stable.
