Change logs for hal source package in Lucid

  • hal (0.5.14-0ubuntu6) lucid-proposed; urgency=low
      * Add 02_libhal_dont_check_running.patch: In libhal_ctx_init(), do not check
        if hal is already running, since it will get D-Bus activated. Thanks to
        Lionel Le Folgoc for the patch! (LP: #546992)
      * Add 00git_bigger_path_size.patch: Bump HAL_PATH_MAX to 4096. Patch taken
        from upstream git head. (LP: #525245)

  • hal (0.5.14-0ubuntu5) lucid; urgency=low
      * Revert the previous change. We do not want any user to modify internal
        system partitions without any authentication, it creates too much of a
        security hole. Instead, the patch in kdelibs should be fixed, after all it
        worked fine in karmic and earlier. (LP: #528907)
     -- Martin Pitt <email address hidden>   Thu, 01 Apr 2010 12:01:16 +0200
  • hal (0.5.14-0ubuntu4) lucid; urgency=low
      * Disable 10_nonpolkit-mount-policy.patch (LP: #528907)
        - We want allow users (and not only root) to mount storage devices

  • hal (0.5.14-0ubuntu3) lucid; urgency=low
      * Add 00git_probe-input_crash.patch: Fix crash in hald-probe-input.
        (LP: #500723)
     -- Martin Pitt <email address hidden>   Tue, 19 Jan 2010 21:20:49 +0100
  • hal (0.5.14-0ubuntu2) lucid; urgency=low
      * 10-x11-input.fdi, debian/rules: Do not install 10-x11-input.fdi any more, uses udev now. This brings those parts back in sync with Debian.
      * Change startup from init/upstart to D-Bus activation. This allows us
        having installed programs which still need hal without the need to start
        hal on boot:
        - Remove debian/hal.{init,upstart,default}.
        - Add D-Bus activation service file debian/org.freedesktop.Hal.service and
          install it in debian/hal.install.
        - debian/hal.postinst: Remove init/upstart/default/rc.d files on upgrade.
        - debian/hal.postinst: When triggering an .fdi file update, just stop
          hald; it will be reactivated when needed.
      * debian/libhal1.symbols: Add new symbol from 0.5.14.

  • hal (0.5.14-0ubuntu1) lucid; urgency=low
      * Merge with Debian svn head, which now has most of our changes. Remaining
        Ubuntu changes:
       - Enable support for X11 input hotplugging:
         + debian/rules: Do not remove 10-x11-input.fdi, we want to install it by
         + Drop 10-x11-input.fdi from debian/hal.examples, since we install
           it by default.
         This will soon be obsoleted by changing to use udev-based input
         device detection.
       - Add support for smartdimmer backlight control for GeForce 7/8/9 based
         Sony laptops.
         + Add 04_nvidia_brightness.patch.
         + Add smartdimmer recommends.
       - debian/hal.postinst: Do not create plugdev and powerdev groups.
       - Add debian/hal.upstart: Supersedes init script.
      * Disable 50_kfreebsd.patch for now; not used in Ubuntu, and does not
        currently apply.
    hal (0.5.14-1) UNRELEASED; urgency=low
      * New upstream release.
      * Remove patches that have been merged upstream
        - debian/patches/20_cpufreq_warning_message_fix.patch
        - debian/patches/21_fix_segfault_in_hal_util_get_last_element.patch
        - debian/patches/22_fix_unconditional_usage_of_PATH_MAX.patch
        - debian/patches/23_support_relative_paths_in_umount_hal.patch
        - debian/patches/30_mount_relatime.patch
    hal (0.5.13-6) unstable; urgency=low
      * debian/patches/10_nonpolkit-mount-policy.patch
        - Only allow root to mount fixed (internal) storage devices.
    hal (0.5.13-5) experimental; urgency=low
      * Disable PolicyKit and ConsoleKit support in hal. GNOME uses DK-disks for
        mounting (removable) devices nowadays and KDE never made use of the
        PolicyKit support in HAL. (Closes: #549505, #526854)
      * debian/rules
        - Pass --disable-policy-kit and --disable-console-kit to
        - Explicitly disable smbios support to not accidentally pick up any
          libsmbios shlibs dependencies in a tainted build environment.
      * debian/control
        - Drop libpolkit-dev and libck-connector-dev build dependency.
        - Drop policykit dependency and demote consolekit to Recommends. We still
          want to install consolekit by default for its D-Bus "at_console"
        - Keymap handling was disabled in 0.5.13-4 as this is done by udev
          nowadays. Bump dependency on udev to (>= 143) to make sure we actually
          have a udev version which supports keymap remapping. (Closes: #555050)
          See also /usr/share/doc/udev/README.keymap.txt
      * debian/hal.install
        - Stop installing the PolicyKit policy files.
      * debian/hal.manpages
        - Stop installing hal-is-caller-privileged.1 man page.
      * debian/hal.postinst
        - Remove polkit-auth call.
        - Ensure the system groups powerdev and plugdev are created as they are
          used in the D-Bus policy file.
      * debian/patches/10-no-polkit-policy-file-validate-check.patch
        - Drop this patch, obsolete.
      * debian/patches/01_at_console.patch
        - Restrict access to the HAL D-Bus service using "at_console" and
          alternatively group powerdev/plugdev.
    hal (0.5.13-4) unstable; urgency=low
      * Disable ACL management which is done by udev nowadays. Drop dependency on
        the acl package.
      * Disable multimedia key remapping which is managed by udev. Drop build
        dependency on gperf.
      * debian/patches/21_fix_segfault_in_hal_util_get_last_element.patch
        - Validate input before passing it to strlen which fixes a segfault in
          hal_util_get_last_element. (Closes: #531383)
      * Add support for GNU/Hurd. (Closes: #552386)
        - debian/patches/22_fix_unconditional_usage_of_PATH_MAX.patch: Use
          HAL_PATH_MAX as PATH_MAX is not defined on GNU/Hurd.
        - debian/control: Disable Linux-only dependencies.
        - debian/hal.init: Hurd's proc translator does not provide /proc/$PID/root
          so ensure we do not fail the chroot check on GNU/Hurd.
          Thanks to Pino Toscano for the patch.
      * debian/patches/23_support_relative_paths_in_umount_hal.patch
        - Support relative paths in umount.hal. (Closes: #552139)
      * Bump Standards-Version to 3.8.3. No further changes.
      * Add debian/README.source which refers to the quilt documentation.
    hal (0.5.13-3) unstable; urgency=low
      * debian/patches/50_kfreebsd.patch
        - Present input.keys capability on GNU/kFreeBSD. (Closes: #541189)
          Thanks to Aurelien Jarno for the updated patch.
      * debian/patches/30_mount_relatime.patch
        - List "relatime" as valid mount option on Linux. (Closes: #510124)
          Thanks to Krzysztof LubaƄski for the patch.
    hal (0.5.13-2) unstable; urgency=low
      * debian/control
        - Add missing Build-Depends on libcam-dev for kFreeBSD.
