Configuring HOTPLUG after install, how?


OK, here I am again
I'm running VectorLinux.
When I installed VL, I remember that I could choose what hotplug should search of during boot.
At that time I did not have a PCI WiFi card, so I decided that hotplug should not search new tings in the PCI slots, but guess what, now I got a PCI WiFi card. How do I tell hotplug to search the PCI slots for new cards?

Please replie to my thread, I would digg it.
Thanks lads...

Hmm, in my /etc/hotplug.d dir there are only one directory:default. In this directory there are these few files:
10-udev.hotplug@ default.hotplug*

Who and what to edit to make hotplug search for PCI WiFi cards during boot?

Hotplug doesn't have anything to do with PCI cards. It alerts the system when USB devices are connected or disconnected from your system.

Hello,
one more thing you could do.
insert the cd of vector linux. Look aroung in the various directories for hotplug.
it shoud have some .tgz extension.
once you are in the same directory in which that *.tgz is....type

#upgradepkg --install-new *.tgz

note: replace * with the name of hotplug package there.
if u leave * there, then it will install all the packages which u haven't already installed ( and which are in that particular directory ).

regards
