Description David Zeuthen 2006-08-04 22:29:57 EDT
05-udev-early.rules needs

 ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="scsi", WAIT_FOR_SYSFS="ioerr_cnt"                    

otherwise events are sent to HAL too quickly and HAL will fail trying to read
missing files and users won't get automounted their USB storage devices.

This was in here earlier, not sure why it was removed?

Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2006-08-07 05:56:39 EDT
could this rule be made more specific? I am not sure if every 'ACTION=="add",
SUBSYSTEM=="scsi"' results in a "ioerr_cnt" sysfs file.
Comment 2 David Zeuthen 2006-08-07 10:40:02 EDT
Indeed ioerr_cnt will always be added and we specifically want to wait for that
file as it's the last one added, see


All the other distros are also using that rule - just checked with Kay Sievers
on IRC channel #hal on freenode. Thanks.
