The patch only repairs and reenables the previously disabled parts of the fstab/mtab backend? and makes it compatible with modern environments. A proper solution maybe would require writing a third backend for dealing with udisks. I hope you'll share the third backend to mediamanager once you write it. > and would reject the patch for inclusion in the > upstream TDE sources. > In fact, as a matter of policy I am going to reject all piecemeal HAL > workarounds unless they implement portions of the libraries (TUComputer, > TUPower) that I have mentioned earlier. The patch only solves the problem of mediamanager's detection of new disk devices. It does not deal with other hal functionality. > This decision is an effort to > keep Trinity maintainable and stable, and continue with the philosophy of > having dedicated system access libraries that then distribute information > and control of system functions to higher level TDE applications.
