device automounter for OpenBSD hotplugd(8)

toad (Toad Opens All Devices) is a utility meant to be started from the hotplugd(8) attach and detach scripts. It will try to mount all partitions found on the device under /run/media/username/device.

Optionally, the toadd(8) optical medium detection daemon that works in conjunction with toad(8) can be used to detect the insertion of a medium in the optical drives of the machine (maximum 2).

See toad(8) for more information about how to create the hotplugd(8) attach and detach scripts. A sample script that can be used as both an attach and a detach script is provided: hotplug-scripts.


$ make
$ doas make install
