Why is HAL being removed?

Future Development of "hal" has been stopped.

Right, there is no future release planned. The project is dead and the
functionality replaced by a bunch of other projects.

What is replacing it?

udev-extras (merge between DeviceKit and udev)

There is no udev-extras. It was a temporary solution and no such package
exists anymore. The hotplug event distribution is handled by the
standard udev daemon and libudev.

Individual subsystem-services like udisks, upower (formerly
Devicekit-*), NetworkManager, PulseAudio, ..., connect over libudev to
kernel device events and handle the domain-specific problems.

Oh no, no! Not yet another "you-don't-know-what-I-know" situation! :'(

Please, people, get the story right so that Karsten doesn't accuse you
of FUD and whatever else :-( .


Pretty please,


Take the bull by the tail and look the facts in the face.
