Preventing mm-detect from running

By default, mm-detect is running on QNX CAR systems. If you decide to manually detect and synchronize media devices in client applications, you can prevent SLM from starting mm-detect during bootup by editing the SLM configuration file.

The version of the Media Player application shipped with the QNX CAR platform won't function properly if you don't run mm-detect. To use Media Player without mm-detect, you must modify the application to manually detect device insertions and synchronize media metadata, as explained in the Detecting and synchronizing devices manually section.
To prevent SLM from launching mm-detect:
  1. From a command console connected to your car system, navigate to and open the SLM configuration file, whose full path is: /etc/slm-config-all.xml.
  2. In the configuration file, locate the component that specifies the properties for mm-detect. This component is the <SLM:component> XML object with the name "mmdetect".
  3. Disable the component by commenting it out (using the XML syntax of <!-- and -->) or by deleting it from the file.
  4. Save the changes to the SLM configuration file. In all subsequent bootups of the car system, mm-detect won't be started.
