Post details: Kernel Events to DBUS

Jan 7
Kernel Events to DBUS

After my posting on LKML and the following answers and hints, I started hacking a bit.
This ended up in a utility that listens to kernel kobject_uevent events, and sends these to the DBUS System bus, so other applications can listen to DBUS to get kernel messages.

One problem for now: extra strings I pass with the DBUS message aren't sent. Got to look into this later... I wish there was more DBUS coding documentation, and more samples.

Yeah, documentation is sometimes a real problem. "code a bit, document a bit" isn't followed in a lot of projects...
