Description Chris Weyl 2009-10-13 00:36:12 EDT
I'd like to be able to install Fedora on my ThinkPad, hit the pre-eject button, and watch lights blink, DASD whirr, and finally, a very satisfying little popup informing me that it's now ok for me to eject.

There are some useful scripts/rules out at thinkwiki:


I can confirm the procedure described (the subset in the latter link at least) works on  my T61 (6459-CTO).

This would make me very happy, and I don't think I'm presuming too much to say many other ThinkPad users happy as well.  If not here, then point me in towards the correct package / way to get this enabled.  Please?

Thanks :)

bundle the rules in the package, which provide the tools
Comment 2 Chris Weyl 2009-10-13 11:00:24 EDT
Sorry, which package?
Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2009-10-13 11:13:15 EDT
The one which will provide ultrabay_eject, ultrabay_insert :)

If you want it in the standard udev package, then submit your request to the udev development mailing list linux-hotplug@vger.kernel.org, but I would suggest to create an extra rpm package for that.
