Description Paolo 2005-04-20 04:03:11 UTC
Well, it's a bit hard for me to find out an exhaustive title. 

The problem: when booting, dbus seems can't notice cd-rom inserting (in my cdrom
and cdrecorder). A "dbus-monitor --system" doesn't produce anything when
inserting a media in both the devices.
If i start a program such "Graveman" (cdrecord GUI), for example, and i let it
find the devices connected to my computer, then Dbus seems to "awake" and even
dbus-manager produce events. 
In this way, i can mount-unmount automatically cdroms (i'm using HAL and

I don't understand what the exact isssue here is; just that you don't see
anything in dbus-monitor?  That program is a bit broken at the moment.

Hi :)
I tried again to solve the problem (dbus seems to not recognize any events) and
i found something curious: hotplug can't "modprobe" automatically the cd-rom
module when inserting a media. I thought that the dbus event was sufficient, but
without that module, dbus seems can't produce anything.
Well, i'm sorry, it's my fault...

Sounds like it's not a D-BUS bug then, thanks.  Probably you need to ensure your
distribution has the cdrom module loaded.
