volrmmount(1)

Name

volrmmount - call rmmount to mount or unmount media

Synopsis

volrmmount [-i | -e] [name | nickname]
volrmmount [-d]

Description

The volrmmount utility calls rmmount(8) to, in effect, simulate an insertion (–i) or an ejection (–e). Simulating an insertion often means that rmmount will mount the media. Conversely, simulating an ejection often means that rmmount will unmount the media. However, these actions can vary depending on the rmmount configuration and media type.

For example, using default settings, if you insert a music CD, it might not be mounted. However, you can configure rmmount so that it calls workman whenever a music CD is inserted.

The volrmmount utility allows you to override volume management's usual handling of media.

–i
