Description nicofo 2010-12-29 10:56:40 UTC
Description of problem:
since Fedora 14, amarok doesn't recognize mp3-device using MTP protocol although "libmtp" is installed.

Installing "libmtp-hal" (and restarting Fedora - or the appropriate service) fixes the problem.
=> libmtp-hal should be a dependency of amarok (and maybe of rhythmbox, ... ? - not tested) as "libmtp" is.

Additional info:
This was not a problem with Fedora 13 - but "libmtp-hal" is a new package since Fedora 14. Maybe "libmtp-hal" was integrated in libmtp package before ?

Comment 1 Linus Walleij 2011-01-16 19:56:18 UTC
Adding Bastien, he did break out the libmtp-hal package.

AFAIK this is beacause HAL must die so unless you need it
for some specific program (like Amarok...) the HAL portions
of libmtp really shouldn't be installed.

The real solution if I know things right, is to rewrite
Amarok to use libudev instead of HAL, and the short term
solution is to add libmtp-hal to Amarok:s Requires:

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2011-01-18 02:06:12 UTC
OK, I have to say however, that making a subpkg for but a single file,
seems quite on the silly side, but what's done is done.

I'll go ahead and just add the dep to f14's amarok builds.

What's the status of this in Rawhide?

Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2011-01-30 17:57:13 UTC
Fwiw, the dep was added to amarok only for f14, if that matters any.
