Description Steve Grubb 2004-08-17 19:56:14 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:1.4.2)

Description of problem:
hal has missing build dependency on hwdata. It will not compile
without it. python is not needed for a BuildRequires because
python-devel requires python to be installed. I deleted the
requirement for docbook-dtds. The config file looks for it and works
without it.

I also found a problem in that gobject was not being linked against.
The problem comes from the configure.in file not having it specified.
But since autoconf is not called from the specfile, I chose to just
fix configure. 

I will attach 2 patches that fix all the above issues.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpmbuild -bb hal.spec

Actual Results:  Various message about something missing or linking

Expected Results:  A message saying where the rpm was written.

Reasigned to Dave.  He is the new maintainer of the hal packages. 
Configure.in patches should go upsteam.
Comment 4 David Zeuthen 2004-08-19 16:20:42 EDT
I've applied the configure.in patch upstream and the hal.spec to the
package. Should appear in Rawhide with the next update. Thanks for the
