Description of problem: After inserting a CD or DVD the icon for the disc shows
up on the desktop and in Thunar under XFCE 4.4.0. However, trying to double
click to mount produces the error: "exo-mount: Cannot mount by HAL device UDI,
because HAL support was disabled for this build."

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert Disc
2. Double-click to mount
Actual results: Not mounted

Expected results: Mounted disc

Additional info: Should be a simple recompile.

Thanks for the bug report. 
I will see about pushing out a fixed exo soon... 

Comment 2 Kevin Fenzi 2007-01-30 21:32:37 UTC
I just pushed a corrected exo out. It should be released as an update soon. 

If you would like to test it out, there is an unsigned package available
directly from the build system at:

Please let me know if this solves your issue. 
Note that gtk-doc is broken in devel currently, so this update was only pushed 
out for fc6 at this time. 

Comment 3 Michael Cronenworth 2007-01-30 22:56:29 UTC
This solves my issue. I see nice names now instead of "fd0" etc. :)


P.S. Please add "thunar-volman" to Extras when you get a chance. This is an
important plug-in for Thunar to really unleash the power of HAL/DBUS. I have it
manually installed.

Comment 4 Kevin Fenzi 2007-01-31 01:32:09 UTC
Glad to hear it. 

I am going to go ahead and close this bug now. If you spot any problems, 
please do file a new bug or re-open this one. ;) 

Thanks for the bug report!

FYI, Christopher has a thunar-volman package ready to submit.
It was waiting on this hal support:
