USB insertion notification

How do my user space application get the notification of USB device insertion / removal from the USB core? I don't want UDEV rule to be used to get the notification.

Thanks in advance.

System notification is handled via D-BUS on Linux. UDEV is used to create device nodes for connected hardware, which is a separate issue entirely.

You may be able to use the 'libhal_ctx_set_device_added' to set a callback function at the hal layer (see tutorial here).
