OK, thanks. I'll reasearch this. I should note, however, that 'hal' isn't
listed in /usr/portage/profiles/use.desc (last update, Nov. 29) which
someone should perhaps look into. I don't have hal on the system, but will
If I add 'hal' to my USE list, how much of gnome am I going to have to
rebuild to get this working?
If gnome now depends on hal and dbus for detections, perhaps the relevant
gnome ebuilds should contain dependencies to these. I know nothing about
these packages, but that's nothing new. Gnome, Gentoo and other systems
move so fast that every couple of weeks I have to go back to school ;-)
