It's a Chimera Desktop 2014.
More specifically, I bought the case, the motherboard,
the CPU, the RAM and the graphics card from
another poster for the price of postage.
They'd been in or on their way to the trash.
I don't remember whether the DVD writer and the power supply were included.
The two hard drives and the floppy drive
are transplants from its predecessor.
The monitor is of the same vintage.
It's running gnome on CentOS 6.
My current machine and its predecessor were mentioned in a previous thread.

I've been trying to read 80-udisks.rules with little success.
Would posting it (242 lines) be helpful?
After I plug in a drive,
is there a way to discover what udev rule was applied?
