Default Gentoo and a Mobile Phone

I have an Optimus*V 3G mobile phone.* When I connect it to my Gentoo*box with the usb*cable, and turn on usb*storage, I get the following message in a pop-up*box.

Unable to mount 2.0 GB*Filesystem
Not Authorized

Should I make the device rwx*for all, make a udev*rule, or do something else?* The problem is depending on what's plugged*in, it may not always be /dev/sdb*.* Also, what applications are out there that can interact with the device?* One of the first things I'd like to do is backup and edit my contacts on the Gentoo*box and sync*it to the phone.

Thanks,

dhk

udev rule is definitely the way to go. You can identify it by
manufacturer/model/serial/whatever, and give it a persistent device
name and permissions of your liking. I had mine as /dev/nokia for
example.

What permissions are currently set? Maybe you just need to add your user
to another group (plugdev?).

I guess normal USB sticks work?

Otherwise, udev is the way to go.

Hope this helps,

When I plug the phone in the follow shows up.
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 0 May 16 17:02 /dev/sdb
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 1 May 16 17:02 /dev/sdb1

I have to mount other usb sticks manually, although I wouldn't mind if
it was automatic.

Are there apps to interface with the phone? Right now I'd like to get
pictures and contacts off it.

Thanks,

dhk
