FC3 hotplugging issue (kernel compilation?)


Hi all,


I recently installed FC3, which had really nice hotplugging for flash devices.

Then recompiled my kernel to 2.6.9 with the rc patches and I lost it.

I suspect its an option on the kernel during make menuconfig, I am going to try to make some intelligent guess lol but it looks like a long list

so before I do that can anyone give me a heads up?


Best Regards,
Edmund

oki.... I'm replying to myself here

just to log my thoughts


Checked out apparently in my /etc/fstab
in the old FC3 fstab-sync updates my /etc/fstab

inserting and deleting the following line when I insert ad remove the flash disk respectively

________________________________________________________________

/dev/sda1 /media/usbdisk vfat pamconsole,noatime,sync,fscontext=system_ubject_r:removable_t,exec,noauto,managed 0 0

__________________________________________________________________


also fstab-sync reacts to HAL daemon

I checked under applications>SYstems Settings>Services and HAL was running so that could not be it


It says that HAL requires PnP ..... so I have recompiled my kernel with PnP Bios (experimental)


If anyone sees any error please let me know
