Currently I am rebuilding a shiny new Gentoo-system on another
harddisk "from scratch".
I think my "old" system have some retro designs and obsoleted
mechanisms, because they still work for me and I was too busy
with other things, whih quit to work
My old system uses:
- Autofs: for conveniently haveing access directories which mounts
things like external harddiscs, usb-sticks, mp3-player, my digicam
(No, I DONT like "real" automounters" which tries to mount in
that moment, when a device is plugged in. Using the moment of
access to a specific directory as trigger for the mount comand
is the way to go (at least for me
...BUT: only my two cent...)
- Encfs to encrypt partitions AND to be able to burn the encoded
stuff on DVD and mount and use the DVD instead of the partition.
My system will be a one-user-desktop system and I will be root and
I prefer a system, which works and does exactly what told over a
system which tries to guess my thoughts ... and will fail therefore.
Is there anything better, less old or preferable according to both
mechanisms mentioned above?
Best regards and thank a lot for any help in advance!
