Description Antony Suter 2004-03-06 10:54:53 UTC
dbus places its libraries in /usr/lib. However it is a vital system library used
by hotplug. On my system /usr is a seperate partition to /, and hotplug is
called many times on boot, before /usr is mounted, failing everytime because it
cannot find libdbus*
Comment 1 David Zeuthen (not reading bugmail) 2004-03-08 07:03:09 UTC
Right - this needs to be fixed.

Perhaps a simple shell script wrapper for hal.hotplug is a fix? In such a
wrapper we would only invoke hal.hotplug if the hal daemon is actually running.
Comment 2 Colin Walters 2004-10-29 12:29:17 UTC
What's going on with this bug?  Nothing on my system in the hotplug path seems
to link to dbus.  Was this bug from when hal.hotplug used D-BUS to talk to hal?
 Now it's using its own socket, right?
Comment 3 David Zeuthen (not reading bugmail) 2004-10-29 12:51:47 UTC
Right, hal.hotplug now uses it's own socket so this bug can be closed.
