How to get the "media:/" protocol to work



Hi Debian KDE users,

I have been eagerly reading this thread:
http://lists.debian.org/debian-kde/2005/03/msg00098.html
I also ended up having the same problems as in this post:
http://lists.debian.org/debian-kde/2005/03/msg00112.html

By today, I got all problems solved due to the following improvements/changes:
- Upgrade to new Alioth packages (Thanks guys for packaging) fixes this bug: 
http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=102086 in the kdebase-kio-plugins package
- Changing HAL to run as root
- Add my user to the plugdev group
- Using pmount instead of fstab-sync
- AND IMPORTANT: Adapt your kernel config to reflect the following options:
<kernel options needed for dbus/hal stuff>
CONFIG_DNOTIFY=y <-- very important
CONFIG_KOBJECT_UEVENT=y
CONFIG_HOTPLUG=y
CONFIG_HOTPLUG_PCI=m
CONFIG_HOTPLUG_PCI_FAKE=m
CONFIG_HOTPLUG_PCI_COMPAQ=m
CONFIG_HOTPLUG_PCI_COMPAQ_NVRAM=y
CONFIG_HOTPLUG_PCI_ACPI=m
# CONFIG_HOTPLUG_PCI_ACPI_IBM is not set
CONFIG_HOTPLUG_PCI_CPCI=y
CONFIG_HOTPLUG_PCI_CPCI_ZT5550=m
CONFIG_HOTPLUG_PCI_CPCI_GENERIC=m
# CONFIG_HOTPLUG_PCI_SHPC is not set 
<kernel options needed for dbus/hal stuff>

Afterwards, plugging in your USB stick and other hotpluggable devices should 
work flawlessly. :) 

Yours, 

Clemens Bier
