HAL

I've fixed a few bugs in the otherwise nice V4L patch from Matthew Mastracci, see here for a nice screenshot. Also got a patch from hadess for detecting read/write speed of optical drives - very neat. And I got around to integrating the firewire patch from Joe even though he says it's a bit cheesy still.

In other news I'm now using my fastest system (dual Athlon 1800, 512MB) as my main development box instead of my old Dell Inspiron 7500 (650 PIII, 128MB). Up until now, the fast box have just been collecting dust, more or less, the past 18 months, so about time. It's really a breeze, just sad it's not as portable :-)

elanthis : yeah, you need udev-012 (udev-013 isn't backwards compatible) and this file in /etc/dbus-1/system.d and then restart the bus. The string with an error in it, stems from the system bus instance, so it must be a bug in d-bus.
