if a CDROM is present in the drive, HAL scans it for 3s.. *yawn*


without the CDROM:

Comment 1 David Zeuthen 2008-04-18 19:00:59 UTC
Mmm, and exactly how often do you keep a disc in drive? Anyway, fact of the
matter is that we need to probe for the file system. Surprisingly libvolume_id
is used for that so right back at your own package ;-) 

FWIW, upstream udev will start doing this too in an upcoming release. At least
this will run in parallel with all the other stuff. When that is in place HAL
(or equivalent) will use that. So this is something to fix later. E.g. ->
closing as UPSTREAM.

Btw, please avoid using https url's if your certificate is invalid. That won't
work in FF3 without a lot of work on us poor users. Thanks.

sry, the https was meant to be http... copy&paste error.. 3 clicks in ff3.

parallel is the key.. yes.
