       halevt-mount [options] [-w] mountpoint|device|udi

       halevt-mount [options] <-c | -r> <-a | mountpoint | device | udi>

       halevt-mount [options] <-l | -s>

       halevt-umount [options] < -a | mountpoint | device | udi>


       halevt-mount  Mount  or  umount  device through HAL and keep a track of
       devices handled.  When  called  as  halevt-umount  the  default  is  to
       unmount,  when  called as halevt-mount the default is to mount.  Option
       -c, -l, -r, -s or  -w  changes  the  operation  performed.   Additional
       argument  is  considered  to  be a mount point, a device or an udi when
       unmounting or removing.

       If the commands are not called with -s after changes in  the  state  of
       the   devices  (after  mounting,  unmounting,  removing  devices),  the
       information available for halevt-mount and halevt-umount may become out
       of sync with the state of the system.

              operations, perform the operation on all the handled devices.
