Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 586377
Please don't depend on hal
Last modified: 2010-08-19 21:28:22 EDT
Description of problem:
From original debian bug tracker :
"gparted uses hal-lock to make sure that desktop automounters don't mount
devices while gparted fiddles with them. However, this should not
require gparted to depend on hal. gparted should just use hal-lock if
present, and ignore it if not. If nothing else pulls in hal, then
nothing will check the hal lock status, and thus running hal-lock
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
