Udev rules fix, Rox rollback

July 14, 2008 — BarryK
Udev rules
Ah, I figured it out. This is the corrected rule, that previously was not working quite right:

ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="block", ENV{DEVTYPE}=="disk", RUN+="/bin/sh -c 'echo ACTION=$ACTION SUBSYSTEM=$SUBSYSTEM DEVTYPE=$DEVTYPE DEVPATH=$DEVPATH > /tmp/pup_event_backend_s'"

I previously had DEVTYPE=="disk" but DEVTYPE is an environment variable, not a key word. I previously got confused about this, as SUBSYSTEM and ACTION are both key words and environment variables.

Rox rollback
A couple of people reported a problem with ROX-Filer when testing 4.1alpha3. There was no desktop background, no icons, but restarting X fixed it. I got this just once. Rox is failing to start -- there is an error message, which I do not understand.
