Description Nicola Soranzo 2011-04-29 12:09:18 EDT
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: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/HalRemoval 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: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_remove_a_package_at_end_of_life Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): olpc-kbdshim-17-1.fc16

(In reply to comment #1) > work is in progress on removing this dependency. Hi Paul, by looking at the latest commits at http://dev.laptop.org/git/users/pgf/olpc-kbdshim/ 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!

Please note that the updates: olpc-kbdshim-19-1.fc14 olpc-kbdshim-19-1.fc16 break the upgrade path! See http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Package_maintainer_responsibilities#Miscellaneous_Items Also an updated olpc-kbdshim-19-1.fc15 should be released. Thanks!
