Default all hal ebuilds gone (was: kde-sunset: qt-meta-3.3.8b-r2 build failure with libpng < 1.5)

Also, independently, it looks like there are no ebuilds for hal any more
even though the kde-sunset packages look for the hal USE flag. I was
never a big fan of hal, but automounting of media under KDE 3.5 is still
nice to have, and as I understand it, without hal, that will no longer
occur. Any recommendations on this issue as well?


Have you tried the attic? http://sources.gentoo.org/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi/gentoo-x86/sys-apps/hal/?hideattic=0
should have all the old main-tree ebuilds and patches for hal. Dunno what the
result of installing it will be, though--I've never used an automounter with my
system, so I was quite happy to kick hal to the curb even though I'm still
using KDE 3.5.

Alternatively, someone posted a patch to the Trinity dev ML about a month ago
that was supposed to enable media detection without hal. It supposedly applies
to vanilla KDE 3.5.10 just fine, but I have not used it and so can't confirm
whether or not it works.


For awhile, hal and hal-info were masked, but you could still unmask
them to get removable media detection if you were using KDE 3 from the
sunset overlay. Now it appears that they aren't in the tree at all
(even masked), or in the overlay either. Is this it for HAL? If so, is
this it for removable media detection on KDE 3 until Trinity is fixed?


(If I had any sense, I'd also say this is it for KDE 3, but...)

Hi,

i just submitted sys-apps/hal and app-misc/hal-info to the kde-sunset overlay.
You should be able to use those versions for the time being (at least they
have been working here without a hitch).
