Description Nicola Soranzo 2011-04-28 12:42:17 UTC
Description of problem:
Now that hal package has been deprecated and removed from composes, hal-info has a broken dependency:

hal-info-20090716-4.fc15.noarch requires hal >= 0:0.5.10

Since the only package depending on hal-info is libmtp-hal (a leaf package), probably the best solution is to deprecate also the hal-info package and remove it from composes.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
hal-info-20090716-4.fc15

Comment 1 Richard Hughes 2011-04-28 13:07:44 UTC
I've sent email to fedora-devel. Thanks for the reminder.

Comment 2 Nicola Soranzo 2011-05-05 09:09:51 UTC
Since nobody seems to be concerned, you can probably go on with the procedure:

Thanks!

Comment 3 Richard Hughes 2011-05-06 08:41:34 UTC
I've done the dead.package in master and opened a ticket with rel-eng. Thanks.

Comment 4 Nicola Soranzo 2011-05-06 09:00:03 UTC
Thank you Richard!

I noticed that hal is still mentioned in some kickstart files in:

http://git.fedorahosted.org/git/?p=spin-kickstarts.git

In particular, in:
fedora-live-base.ks
fedora-live-mini.ks
fedora-livecd-lxde.ks
fedora-livecd-security.ks

Maybe it should be removed also there.

Comment 5 Bruno Wolff III 2011-05-20 18:49:13 UTC
I opened Bug 706505 against spin-kickstarts to get hal removed from ks files for F16. This should be taken care of soon.
