Sounds very nice. But the script I use will still work when upgrading
the server from openSUSE 11.2 to 11.3, and is therefore the preferred
choice for me.
Also, I'd need to find information and learn how to tweak udev hotplug
rules. I want to implement this on about 30 VMs on 2 different hosts,
with 3 different release states of servers (openSUSE 11.1, 11.2 and
11.3). The chance is high that I'd need two or three different udev
tweaks for the different releases, so I don't see the benefit of udev
for me. I wrote the script in about the same time I wrote this mail.
That's always the problem between developers ("ah, cool new stuff") and
admins ("i need this on 500 servers with least possible work for me, and
it must still work after any updates/upgrades").
