gnome-volume-manager, udev, hal, dbus [Sep. 22nd, 2004|02:18 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
The combination of gnome-volume-manager + udev + hal + dbus makes Linux actually sane for mere mortals. And fuck, sane for me too. I never liked having to mount USB memory sticks.

So I'm telling whitaker all about this (because it's all working in Debian now) when he asked me if anything exciting's happening.

Now, this guy hasn't been gone for a week yet but we've already forgotten his perpetual your-mom jokes. And I totally walked into it:

whitaker: "Your mom automatically mounts when I stick it in. Oooooooo..........."

The hardware abstraction layer (http://www.freedesktop.org/Software/hal). Basically it makes all the hardware details go away so you can write nice cross-platform apps that automount usb disks and whatever without too much.
