Mandriva Linux Advisory MDKA-2006:014
Package : dynamic
Date : January 26, 2006
Dynamic was not calling scripts correctly when hardware was
plugged/unplugged. Plugging a digital camera (not usb mass storage,
like a Canon camera) was not creating an icon on Desktop (for GNOME)
or in the Devices window (for KDE).
Dynamic was also creating a "pilot" symlink in / (in addition to
/dev/pilot) when a Palm was connected, and this file was not removed
when the Palm was unplugged. Now, this file is not longer created.
If the symlink is already on the user's system, it can safely be
Updated packages have been patched to correct the issue.
