How to configure hotplug?


Guys,

I would really appreciate if anyone could explain/show me some pointers regarding the working/setting up of hotplug in FC3..

I would like to know the configuration steps rather than configuring some device..

Thanks..

to have hotplug automatically run at boot to detect devices, allow it's startup script to be exectued.. and it should automatically run on bootup.
in slackware this script is /etc/rc.d/rc.hotplug

does this answer your question?

When I connect several of my USB devices, I see the following processes getting executed:

/bin/sh /sbin/hotplug usb
/etc/hotplug.d/default/05wait-for-sysfs.hotplug usb
/bin/bash /etc/hotplug.d/default/default.hotplug usb
.
.
.

I want to know more about these..

Thanks!
