Description Daniel Drake 2008-08-15 16:21:17 EDT
hal-0.5.11-2 in Fedora 9 polls OLPC's battery a lot. This has a negative impact on system performance, particularly touchpad and real-time audio.

Fedora 7's hal didn't do this.

I posted some patches upstream but haven't got any real response. Can we apply them in Fedora's package in the mean time? Or would you prefer that we fork an OLPC-3 branch?

No response, so requesting a cvs fork so that we can get this in our rapidly-approaching build

Please create OLPC-3 branches based off F9, cvsextras commit access.

Let me see if I can get David's attention before we have to branch this... 
It would be nice not to have to.
Comment 6 Kevin Fenzi 2008-08-25 15:42:56 EDT
Talked with David and he suggested we ask Richard Hughes... 
adding him to cc. ;)
Comment 7 Daniel Drake 2008-08-29 12:42:38 EDT
No response, can we go ahead with the fork anyway?
Comment 8 Kevin Fenzi 2008-08-30 16:44:43 EDT
Yeah, I suppose so. ;( 

cvs done.
Comment 9 Daniel Drake 2008-09-02 12:27:35 EDT
Thanks Kevin, apologies for all these fork requests. I have built the packages now, but will leave this bug open in hope of review for F9/F10/upstream.
Comment 10 Jeremy Katz 2008-10-15 12:03:40 EDT
And this is now upstream
Comment 11 Peter Robinson 2008-10-15 16:07:43 EDT
Will this be pushed out to F-9?
