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*
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.
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?
Right, hal.hotplug now uses it's own socket so this bug can be closed.
