       IvmConfigActions.xml - actions to be performed by ivman(8)


       IvmConfigActions.xml  specifies  which  actions  are to be performed by
       ivman(8) when a device is inserted/attached to  the  system,  where  an
       action is defined as mounting the device or executing a program.

       IvmConfigActions.xml is parsed as an XML file.  The general form of the
       file is:

        <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
        <ivm:ActionsConfig version="0.2" xmlns:ivm="">

           <ivm:Match name="matchname" value="matchvalue">
              <ivm:Option name="optionname1" value="optionvalue1" />
              <ivm:Option name="optionname2" value="optionvalue2" />



       Each  time  a  device is added to the system, this file is parsed.  If,
       for a Match element, matchname=matchvalue is true for the  new  device,
       then the Match or Option elements within that Match element are parsed.

       A Match element can have any of the following names:

                   Whether or not HAL specifies that a device can  and  should
                   be mounted.  Must be "true" or "false".

                   The string in place of "anything" will be taken as the name
                   of a HAL property string for the device, and the  value  of
                   the  property  will  be  compared  to the value given.  Run
                   ’lshal’ to see a list of HAL properties which can  be  used

            *      Match every device.  Use with care!

       An Option element can have any of the following names:

            mount  Whether  or  not  to  mount  the device.  Must be "true" or
                   "false".  If more than one value applies to a device,  then
                   the one closest to the end of the file will be used.

            exec   A  command  to execute when the device or disc is inserted.
                   The amount of commands per device is unlimited.

            execun A command to execute when the device or  disc  is  removed.
                   The  amount of commands per device is unlimited.  Note that
                   HAL property substitution is limited for execun; since  the
                   device  no  longer  exists when the command is executed, we
                   cannot get information about it  from  HAL,  therefore  any
                   substitution  will  occur  with  the property values at the
                   time of device insertion (or mounting if Ivman mounted it),
                   NOT removal.

                   A  command  to  execute  when the device is inserted if the
                   device is a volume containing DVD-format video.  The amount
                   of  commands  per  device  is  unlimited.  NOTE: execdvd is
                   deprecated!  A HAL property now exists to indicate  whether
                   or not a DVD contains video - volume.disc.is_videodvd .

       exec, execdvd and execun support substitution of HAL device properties.
       This is accomplished by surrounding the property name with  $  symbols.
       For  instance, if $hal.volume.mount_point$ is within a command, it will
       be replaced  with  the  volume’s  mount  point  before  execution.   No
       character  escaping  is  done in the substitution, but the characters ’
       and " are replaced with ?, so you can surround  the  substitution  with
       quotes without fear.

       Remember  that  this  is an XML file, which means that characters which
       have a special meaning in XML (entities)  need  to  be  escaped.   Some
       characters  which  are  popular  in shell scripting (&, <, >) are among
       these special characters.  As a quick reference, & becomes  &amp;  ,  <
       becomes &lt; , > becomes &gt; , ’ becomes &apos; and " becomes &quot; .

       As many Matches can be nested as is desired, and as  many  Matches  and
       Options  can  be placed within a Match as is desired.  This, along with
       the ability to test HAL properties, makes Ivman quite flexible; see the
       examples below.


       <!-- autoplay video DVDs -->
       <ivm:Match name="hal.volume.disc.type" value="dvd_rom">
           <ivm:Option     name="execdvd"     value="xine     -f     -g     -D
       dvd:$hal.block.device$" />

       <!-- autoplay audio CDs -->
       <ivm:Match name="hal.volume.disc.type" value="cd_rom">
           <ivm:Match name="hal.volume.disc.has_audio" value="true">
               <ivm:Match name="hal.volume.disc.has_data" value="false">
                   <ivm:Option name="exec" value="cdplay -d $hal.block.device$
       -c" />

       <!-- blacklist some partitions we don’t want mounted -->
       <ivm:Match name="hal.block.device" value="/dev/hda5">
           <ivm:Option name="mount" value="false" />
       <ivm:Match name="hal.block.device" value="/dev/hda2">
           <ivm:Option name="mount" value="false" />

       Many more examples are given in the default file provided with Ivman.
