Re: [opensuse-factory] HAL and related

Here's another reason to stay the course and wait to see what happens
with Trinity:

If you go to their website, it says they are down and will be until at
least the 7th.

That's a fairly long time to be down.

Also, from what I have seen of Trinity, they are more into supporting
Debian/uBuntu and Slackware based systems.

As for factory, I'm not sure that I see the need to move KDE3 back
into it. Especially with the hal-dependencies. For now it should
probably be in it's current repo and if there is more support for it
later, then I would be for it. I can't use 11.4/KDE3 on my desktop
because of the lack of a SaX2 type config tool with my weird monitor
setup. Otherwise, I would already be using it.

Ilya - Do we have a list of packages that require HAL? And, can HAL
still be used beside/conucrrent with the replacement?(udev I
believe?). If so, and if KDE3 is the only thing that needs HAL, I
wouldn't say moving it back into Factory is the right idea until/if
KDE3 can be moved over to udev.

Just my 2 cents.
