Description David Shea 2013-06-18 16:23:29 EDT
Description of problem:

hal is not in RHEL7, since its functionality has been superseded in newer versions of udev, and now systemd. However, no package metadata Obsoletes the hal packages, leaving hal and hal-libs on the system after an upgrade from RHEL 6.4 to RHEL 7.0.

Adding an Obsoletes for hal to the systemd metadata would provide a means for hal to be automatically removed. Obsoleting hal-libs would be nice, too, but less necessary since the libraries at least don't try to start any services.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Hi systemd team, can one of you make the required change in the rhel-7.0 branch to systemd.spec?  Thanks.

Also, unfortunately since the dist-git policy for RHEL 7.0 now requires 'rhel-7.0.0+' (3-ACK'd bug), you'll need to add devel_ack+ and get a qa_ack+ to push the change referencing this bug.
