i'm trying to understand how user space devices managing is provided in linux (Debian wheezy). I'm googling by days to understand what are hal, udisks and udev, but i'm feeling so stupid for i cannot really figure out what they are and what they do.
I use udiskie and udisks for auto-mounting devices in Fluxbox. It however stopped working on one laptop, while still works with exactly same configurations on other. Both machines run up-to-date current, only difference is one run 32 bit slackware, other 64 bit.
