Description Nicola Soranzo 2011-02-14 06:28:35 EST
Description of problem: According to this commit: http://gnomad2.git.sourceforge.net/git/gitweb.cgi?p=gnomad2/gnomad2;a=commit;h=ff91a191c4951014761b00c06a185c1f166de1f4 gnomad2 doesn't require HAL anymore. Since HAL has been deprecated for 2 years, Fedora is trying to remove it from the distribution: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/HalRemoval I tried to remove the line: BuildRequires: hal-devel from gnomad2.spec and the package builds correctly and runs, but I don't have any device to test it. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gnomad2-2.9.4-7.fc15
Comment 1 Nicola Soranzo 2011-03-23 10:16:19 EDT
Also the dependency on libmtp-hal should be removed.
Comment 2 Linus Walleij 2011-03-24 11:45:05 EDT
If you remove the HAL part gnomad2 functionality degrades: it will not detect devices when they are plugged in. The proper thing to do is to switch to something like libudev or ibus or whatever, but I haven't found any good example on how this should be done, any hints? All I find is the libudev etc docs but no real-world examples. Can you help me with this?
Comment 3 Nicola Soranzo 2011-03-24 12:29:28 EDT
Unfortunately I'm not a developer, so I cannot really help you, I'm just the one who pings maintainers ;) You can take a look at what was done for cheese here: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=594966 Otherwise, just ask for help/advise on fedora devel list!
Comment 4 Nicola Soranzo 2011-04-21 09:55:17 EDT
Please note that the hal package has been deprecated and blocked from composes for rawhide. Therefore, there are some broken dependencies for your package now: gnomad2-2.9.4-7.fc15.i686 requires libhal.so.1
