hotswaprc - configuration file for hotswap
/etc/hotswaprc is the global configuration file for the hotswap
It allows system administrators to specify arbitrary shell scripts to
be run after a device is inserted, as well as before and after it is
removed. Scripts are selected according to the model name retrieved
from the device. This is particularly helpful for automatic
configuration of CD-RW drives, which require SCSI emulation and bypass
normal access via the IDE subsystem.
hotswaprc is implemented as an Extensible Mark-up Language (XML)
application. XML documents are structured using elements of the form
<tag-name> content <tag-name>. A Document Type Definition (DTD)
describes the possible content of each element.
Please refer to the XML specification for more information. The hotswap
distribution also contains an example file, doc/hotswaprc.example,
which includes the DTD for the configuration file format.
This is the root element of the document. Each valid hotswaprc
must contain exactly one <hotswap> element. The <hotswap>
element may contain an arbitrary number of <device> elements.
The configuration file contains one <device> element for every
device for which scripts are defined. The <device> element is
composed of the following elements in this order: <name>,
<post-insert>, <pre-remove>, <post-remove>. All but <name> are
<name> The content of this element is the model identification string
of the IDE device the current <device> element refers to.
Contains the shell script that is to be executed after the
device has been inserted and registered with the kernel.
Contains the shell script that is to be run before hotswap
attempts to unregister the device.
Contains the shell script that is to be run after the device had
