The gnome-mount package contains programs for mounting, unmounting and ejecting storage devices. The goal for gnome-mount is to get the appropriate Gnome software (such as gnome-volume-manager and Gnome-VFS) to use his method instead of invoking mount/umount/eject or direct HAL invoking methods.

All the gnome-mount programs utilize the methods on HAL and as such run unprivileged. The rationale for gnome-mount is to have a centralized place (in GConf) where settings (e.g. mount options and mount locations) are maintained.

A nautilus extension allows to easily change the mount options which can be user, drive or volume specific.
