Description Nicola Soranzo 2011-04-29 16:09:18 UTC
Description of problem:
Since HAL has been deprecated upstream for 3 years, all major distributions are
removing it. You can find more details on the proposed Fedora Feature page:


The hal package has already been deprecated by its maintainer and blocked from
composes for rawhide.
Therefore, unless somebody volunteers to maintain hal, the following broken
dependencies for your package should be removed:

olpc-kbdshim-17-1.fc16.i686 requires libhal.so.1
olpc-kbdshim-17-1.fc16.i686 requires hal

If these dependencies cannot be removed, this package should probably be
deprecated as well:

Hi Paul,
by looking at the latest commits at


it seems to me that version 18 is ready and should fix this bug, am I right?
If this is the case, please rebuild the new version!

Comment 3 Nicola Soranzo 2011-08-21 14:52:46 UTC
Please note that the updates:
break the upgrade path! See


Also an updated olpc-kbdshim-19-1.fc15 should be released.
