Description Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-02-13 10:30:19 UTC
Completely useless with any udev version in the tree; please remove this dependency.

Also, if you need to blacklist something, that goes to /etc/modprobe.d and not /etc/hotplug/blacklist; looks like this needs quite a couple of udev fixes to use udev rules instead as well.

I already have a "almost working" udev capi4k-utils in my local overlay. Still needs some work for the USB stuff. I will release it asap.

Hello, just coming here from a bug where a user has hotplug still installed on his system. Maybe he's victim of this bitrot in the tree. This package looks like an excellent candidate for treecleaners. 

RDEPEND="usb? ( sys-apps/hotplug )

# install USB hotplug stuff
    if use usb; then
        insinto /etc/hotplug/blacklist.d
        newins "${FILESDIR}/capi.blacklist" capi
        insinto /etc/hotplug/usb
        newins "${FILESDIR}/capi.usermap" capi.usermap
        exeinto /etc/hotplug/usb
        newexe "${FILESDIR}/capi.hotplug" capi

Mind you, hotplug hasn't been doing anything at all since like 3 years-old udev releases, meaning the usb functionality is completely broken if it needs some custom udev rules like the above stuff suggests.

Precisely, this has been FUBARed since udev-103-r1. 

udev-103-r1 (15 Jan 2007)

  Remove old cdrom-rules, solving Bug #158060. Disable calling hotplugd for

  Bug #147006 and Bug #145809.
