I've got gdm-2.29.92-6.fc13.i686 installed and there does not seem to be any dep on hal anymore.
Comment 2 Stéphane Démurget 2010-04-17 06:12:54 EDT
(I mean, a direct dep :p)
Comment 3 Michal Schmidt 2010-04-17 12:07:39 EDT
Yes, the direct dependency on hal was removed in gdm-2.29.92-4.fc13.

That hal is still required by gnome-power-manager and by pm-utils are different bugs.
