Ilya - Do we have a list of packages that require HAL?

First of all, it's kdebase3. You can build it without HAL, but it will not
see attached USB drives then. With HAL it works excellent.

And, can HAL
still be used beside/conucrrent with the replacement?(udev I
believe?).

HAL itself just calls udev. Thus as long as udev is included HAL should work
as well. The replacement for HAL is udisks which is just another front-end to
udev.

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.
