I just checked on both other machines and there's no trace of gnome-voume-manager whatsoever. We all use KDE and there probably is something similar (maybe even kde-volume-manger), found some references to a package kvm but it's nowhere to be found either ... :? Edit: Also, on my desktop is a "Syste...

hal is installed and the daemon is running but no icon appears when plugging in a usb device. is there perhaps a flag I need to activate in a config file? I'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with gnome stuff because we don't even have gnome installed, only the libraries needed to run gimp, grip and...

Got it working to the point where udev automagically creates an fstab entry and offers to mount my drive in a konqueror window. Only there's no option to unmount the usb drives once I'm finished so I still have to look up the device number and unmount it as root. Now on all the "other" boxen :) ther...

One thing I noticed is that when he inserts something like a usb pen he's immediately offered the choice of dynamically mouting the device (or do nothing). This tell sme that udev is probably working right on his bo...

MoR, have you ever used gtkpod?

I usually don't like Dvorak too much, but this article is disturbing at best!
I sure hope he's wrong this time (like he has been many times before, but still ...)

Unfortunately, U3 is a vendor supported technology, and we're probably going to see more of it in the future.

Some stats to compare package versions in both ubuntu and Debian and correct some misconceptions about version numbers. I do not agree entirely with the author's view though when he says Yes, Scott, I am comparing stable releases on one side, with development versions on the other side. However, I t...
