do you need the dbus and hal daemons in kde?
This is beyond me, last day I mistakenly removed both the hal and dbus daemons but removable devices support in kde still works great... it looks like the only things you need are libhal and the dbus-qt thing, no need to start the daemons, actually, starting the daemons cause my mounted hd partitions not to be displayed in the media folder. I simply love the udev/hal/dbus trio, it's the worst documented pile of hacks that has ever happened to the linux world :)

If you want things to work peachy you need the stuff. Also, sometimes you don't notice but the services get started without your permission if needed. Heh, happened to me a lot at Gentoo, had to actually remove some stuff to prevent it being loaded.

thx for your feedback, still i find it strange, it looks like the offending package is "hal", starting the hal daemon causes removable devices not to work they are supposed to, just like i mentioned in my first post, i.e. i can't see my mounted hard disk partitions in media for example
