Mandriva: Updated dynamic packages fix USB device and Palm detection issues Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake 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 removed manually. Updated packages have been patched to correct the issue.

 Problem Description:
 
 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 
 removed manually.           
 
 Updated packages have been patched to correct the issue.
