Hot swap IDE device
to an IDE bus. The lines will be isolated so powering won't be an issue.
My question is will the kernal reprobe the bus if a device is added/removed?
If the kernal doesn't reprobe the bus is there a way that I can manually
do it in software?
I am running kernal 2.6.12 (not sure on the minor number).
Thanks in advance

Hmmmm, I wasn't aware that you could do hot-swapping on an IDE bus. But even if you can, wouldn't it be easier to manage if you migrated this solution to a USB bus rather than IDE?Linux user #126863 - see http://linuxcounter.net/
