  1. How to get rid of notification after cd inserting

    Hello,
    I use Debian Linux, version SID, with the newest official packages, including
    KDE. For about two months (more or less) after inserting cd into cd-rom
    annoying pop-up appears asking me what to do. I don't want it to appear, but
    don't know the way of disabling it.
    I run KDE Control Center, go to peripherals, then storage data (rough
    translation from my polish environment). In advanced tab I have only "Enable
    HAL" turned on, other two options (including something about CD-ROM status)
    disabled.
    Do you have any ideas how to get rid of my problem?

    Best regards,
    Robert

    Try in the KDE Components --> Service Manager and disable the Media
    Notification Daemon.

    You could get rid of HAL. I apparently don't have it installed. I
    occasionally get some spurious warning messages from things about "can't blah
    blah blah HAL" I've got some HAL libs installed, but the "hal" package is
    not. I don't have "udev" or "dbus" either, and have no idea what the hell
    anyone is talking about.

    I figure this is probably a good thing. If it ain't broke... Hotplug is
    still working just fine here, thanks.

    Guess why udev replaces hotplug by now: hotplug kinda _was_ broken because it
    had e.g. some race conditions when using custom scripts (that's also why usb
    devices properly appear in /dev again with 2.6.15).
    Why udev itself is sometimes wanted is another story (fixed device names is
    one, especially when using event devices in the input system).

    I'm sure it does something magical that makes a lot of sense, but it doesn't
    seem to even work with my kernel (2.6.10), and there are assorted
    (niche-specific, non-mainstream) things I've never managed to get working
    with any kernel newer than this.

    Maybe if I wait long enough, it will all go away. I didn't bother with devfs
    either, and look how that turned out.

    If not, I'll deal with it when I no longer have the option to ignore it.
