Hello mailing list,
i have a question about the interaction between HAL, ConsoleKit,
PolicyKit and the environment variable XDG_SESSION_COOKIE.
As described in the documentation of ConsoleKit, the session-leader(gdm,
kdm) asks the ConsoleKit Daemon to open a new session. The ConsoleKit
Daemon returns the secret cookie to the session-leader.
The Console-Kit Daemon also determine which session is currently active
and can take control of the hardware of the Seat.
Can someone please summarize what happens if i plug-in an usb device in
a user-session (interaction between ConsoleKit, HAL, PolicyKit) and what
role the XDG_SESSION_COOKIE plays in this case.
It would be very nice if someone could help me
Tank you very much
