Remove hal dependency
Last modified: 2011-04-30 23:28:07 EDT
Description of problem:
According to this commit:
gnomad2 doesn't require HAL anymore. Since HAL has been deprecated for 2 years, Fedora is trying to remove it from the distribution:
I tried to remove the line:
from gnomad2.spec and the package builds correctly and runs, but I don't have any device to test it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Also the dependency on libmtp-hal should be removed.
If you remove the HAL part gnomad2 functionality degrades: it will not
detect devices when they are plugged in.
The proper thing to do is to switch to something like libudev or
ibus or whatever, but I haven't found any good example on how this
should be done, any hints?
All I find is the libudev etc docs but no real-world examples.
Can you help me with this?
Unfortunately I'm not a developer, so I cannot really help you, I'm just the one who pings maintainers ;)
You can take a look at what was done for cheese here:
Otherwise, just ask for help/advise on fedora devel list!
Please note that the hal package has been deprecated and blocked from composes for rawhide.
Therefore, there are some broken dependencies for your package now:
