|| ||[ANNOUNCE] 2004-01-05 release of hotplug scripts|
|| ||Mon, 5 Jan 2004 10:30:58 -0800|
I've just packaged up the latest Linux hotplug scripts into a release,
which can be found at:
Or from your favorite kernel.org mirror at:
or for those who like bz2 packages:
I've also packaged up some pre-built (and signed) Red Hat FC 1 based rpms:
The source rpm is available if you want to rebuild it for other distros
or versions of Red Hat at:
The main web site for the linux-hotplug project can be found at:
which contains lots of documentation on the whole linux-hotplug
This release is recommended for _anyone_ using the 2.6.0 and beyond
kernels who is still using hotplug scripts older than 2003_08_05, as a
number of changes have been made in order to support the 2.6 kernel
The release is still backwards compatible with 2.4, so there is no need
to worry about upgrading.
The full ChangeLog extract since the last release is included below for
those who want to know everything that's been changed, and who to blame
for them :)

- keep already loaded modules from causing messages in the syslog.
- added firmware.agent file from Marcel Holtmann <email@example.com>
- Lots of patches from Bill Nottingham <firstname.lastname@example.org> to try to
sync back up with the Red Hat hotplug package:
Don't bring up network devices if the network service isn't
Some extra joystick devices.
Exclude tunl*/tun*/tap* from being brought up via hotplug
Some wacom tablets for evdev.
Set IN_HOTPLUG environment variable as something users can
check in case they don't want some interface to be
automatically brought up.
Run updfstab on usb-storage insertion, and general removal
(Probably needs to run on firewire, and other sorts of
removal devices). upfstab is a Red Hat specific program that
edits /etc/fstab to add entries for removable devices.
- added dasd (s390 stuff) tape and dasd agent files from SuSE and Red
Hat's hotplug package.
