Autorun feature availability
 
Hi All,

My distro is pretty old, which is RHEL 4.7. How to test weather autorun facility is there for removable medias like CD/DVC/USB ?

Thanks

Hello vinaytp,

normaly on modern systems such events are managed via udev. If you have udev installed and properly configured, you should have "autorun" (which belongs to the M$ terminology ;-) )

You may want to read this: http://reactivated.net/writing_udev_rules.html

Also note, that on many systems the hal-daemon (hald, hardware-abstraction-layer) comes into play when it comes to hardware-recognition-events.
