volmissing - notify user that volume requested is not in the CD-ROM or floppy drive


/usr/lib/vold/volmissing [ -c ] [ -p ] [ -s ] [ -m alias ]


volmissing informs a user when a requested volume is not available. Depending on the option selected, users are notified through their console window, syslogd(1M), or a mail message. volmissing -p is the default action taken by vold(1M), the Volume Management daemon, when it needs to notify a user that the requested volume is not available. If you want to change this default event, modify the /etc/vold.conf file. See vold.conf(4). You can change the notification method for your system by editing the vold.conf configuration file and providing a new option for volmissing in the notify entry under the Events category.


-c Send a message to the user's console requesting the volume be inserted. To end the notification without inserting the requested volume, use volcancel(1). -p All volmissing events will be handled through a GUI, provided a window system is running on the console. If this option is specified, and no window system is running, all messages go to the system console. -s Send one message to the syslogd(1M). -m alias Send a mail message to the specified mail alias about the missing volume.


/etc/vold.conf Volume Management daemon configuration file. Directs the Volume Management daemon to control certain dev- ices, and causes action to be taken when specific cri- teria is met. /usr/lib/vold/volmissing_popup Pop-up used when the -p option is supplied and a win- dow system is running.
