31 <title>Introduction to gnome-volume-manager</title>
32
33 <para>The <application>gnome-volume-manager</application> package contains
34 a volume manager for GNOME. It is a desktop-level daemon that enforces
35 volume-related policy in response to events received from
36 <application>HAL</application>. This is useful for automatic mounting of
37 floppy diskettes, CDROMs and removable storage devices. It can also be
38 used to automatically run a program in response to other hotplug events
39 such as plugging in USB printers or cameras, or inserting DVDs and
40 music CDs. The goal of <application>gnome-volume-manager</application> is
41 to implement all functionality as a state-machine in response to
42 asynchronous events from <application>HAL</application>. It is one
43 component in a larger plan to fully integrate all levels of the Linux
44 system, from the kernel on up through the desktop and its
45 applications.</para>

130 <para>Proper operation of this package is dependent upon the

133 configure <command>gnome-volume-manager</command>. Configuration
134 is accomplished using the <quote>Removable Drives and Media</quote>
135 graphical interface found on the
136 <quote>Desktop</quote>&mdash;<quote>Preferences</quote> drop-down
137 menu. You can also run the <command>gnome-volume-properties</command>

139 interface.</para>
140
141 <para>Note that the <command>gnome-volume-manager</command> daemon
142 program should be started when your GNOME desktop environment is started.
