[solved] udev instead of KDE's hald-addon

New features which should be implemented in Porteus; suggestions are welcome. All questions or problems with testing releases (alpha, beta, or rc) should go in their relevant thread here, rather than the Bug Reports section.

[solved] udev instead of KDE's hald-addon

Post#1 by Rava » 10 Mar 2011, 01:27

I suggest removing KDE's buggy HALD and for now migrate / include Slax 6.1.2 standard version of udev. It's running anyway, at least in Slax remix it does:

Code: Select all

bash-4.1# ps ax|grep udev|grep daemon
 4677 ?        S<s    0:00 /sbin/udevd --daemon
 7978 ?        S<     0:00 /sbin/udevd --daemon
 7979 ?        S<     0:00 /sbin/udevd --daemon
I also dislike this new "/media" folder since I started with several Linux when there was only a /mnt and so I am used to type "/m[tab]" in console or xterm to quickly change into the one any only folder that has all drives and partitions that have been present at boot or that have been adden at any time later...

And I know, coding udev is not trivial, but the way Slax 6.1.2 does it is a neat start and I not discovered any glitch so far...


Your thoughts?

"I suggest removing KDE's buggy HALD"
KDE-4.5.5 (present in 64bit BETA) still depends on it. it wont remove it even in KDE-4.6.x as some other packages needs it. for example qmmp for automounting audio CD's.

"I also dislike this new "/media" folder"
we were talking about it in 'slax-remix' times. i like /media folder as it keeps portable media separated from internal HD's.
if you want slax-6.1.2 behaviour please copy udev config files from it to Porteus as per Killer's instruction:
http://www.slax.org/forum.php?action=vi ... ntID=66046&

Code: Select all

I copied the following files from Slax 6.1.2:
/etc/udev/rules.d/fstab-update.rules
/sbin/udev-fstab-update

It is easy to put them under the rootcopy directory in Remix. The result worked perfectly.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

Thanks fanthom, I did not know about the "copy udev config files from it to Porteus as per Killer's instruction" solution yet...
Cheers!
