Re: Disabling hardware detection



You should note that an increasing amount of hardware is *always*
detected and configured each boot-up (or whenever the kernel detects
it). For example, USB devices need to be configured and made available
when they are plugged in, so the same mechanism is used for configuring
them at boot time. This makes sure that they work the same way whether
they are connected when Fedora starts up, or if they are plugged in
later.

So for this hardware, you probably won't have config files.

I understand that kudzu does less than it used to, as more hardware is
moved to udev/HAL.

Thanks James.  I was looking to toy around with speeding up the boot
process a bit by removing needless steps such as checking for hardware
changes at bootup.

Regards thumb drive, I have one that is partitioned in two and FC5
tries to mount the physical device which fails, telling me I need to
be root.  Of course what needs to be mounted is the individual
partition, not the device.  I simply added myself in the sudo file to
allow my regular username to mount & umount.  I simply cancel the
error and then mount it from bash.

Thanks,

Jacques
