Description Hicham HAOUARI 2010-04-27 08:50:02 EDT
Description of problem:
From original debian bug tracker :
"gparted uses hal-lock to make sure that desktop automounters don't mount
devices while gparted fiddles with them.  However, this should not
require gparted to depend on hal.  gparted should just use hal-lock if
present, and ignore it if not.  If nothing else pulls in hal, then
nothing will check the hal lock status, and thus running hal-lock
doesn't help."

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gparted-0.5.2-1.fc13

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Try to remove hal
2.gparted is getting removed as well
  
Actual results:
Hal dependency

Expected results:
No hal dependency

Additional info:
Tested on fedora 13 without hal and it works
