Description Michal Schmidt 2010-02-22 18:28:33 EST
Description of problem:
gdm 2.29.6 already contains the patch "remove remaining traces of Hal"
(http://git.gnome.org/browse/gdm/commit/?id=bbad0645c8dc70a57db415e02f838769a21a6539)

gdm-2.29.6-1.fc13 still Requires hal though.

gdm-2.29.6-1.fc13

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
Try 'yum remove hal' in F-13.
  
Actual results:
yum wants to remove gdm too.

Expected results:
gdm should work fine without hal.

I've got gdm-2.29.92-6.fc13.i686 installed and there does not seem to be any dep on hal anymore.
Comment 2 Stéphane Démurget 2010-04-17 06:12:54 EDT
(I mean, a direct dep :p)
Comment 3 Michal Schmidt 2010-04-17 12:07:39 EDT
Yes, the direct dependency on hal was removed in gdm-2.29.92-4.fc13.

That hal is still required by gnome-power-manager and by pm-utils are different bugs.
