Just a thought here, is there an easy way of trapping the signal in the
kernel that triggers when a notebook is hot docked / undocked. I have
noticed that linux at least responds and displays some text on the console
(forget what it is) when you hot dock it (at least on a Dell Cpi) it
shouldn't be too difficult to trap this and have it execute a script based
on what state it is going to. (and then have that script launch / shutdown
eth0, kill X & restart a new server etc.)
Has anyone done this already ?
Is it handled in a more controlled way already ?
Does linux detect a dock on all docking stations ?
Just thoughts . . . . if anyone knows answers, you might post and let me
know . . . . .
It would be an interesting thing to work on . . . .
How do other unixen treat hot docking ? (I know at least sun produce(d)
notebooks with solaris on them
