Is it going to be replaced by DeviceKit soon ? Will everything be finally merged into udev-extras ? How's Gentoo reflecting all of this ?

Hi, right now we have Xorg-Server that doesn't need hal at all.

Gnome 2.28 can work without hal too.

KDE 4.4.3 can but you will lose the automounter feature.

About Devicekit, I have no idea.

Update : Gnome 2.30 works out of the box with HAL.

With Gnome 2.28, you will lose the automounter feature.

IIRC, devicekit is superseded by upower and udisks

For automounting there's no other solution than hal afaik.

There's udisks. Gnome 2.30 already uses it, as does pcmanfm beta. Other apps haven't migrated yet, AFAIK.

Indeed, but at least, we see that they are working on it.

This interests me. I've unmasked xorg-server 1.8 but when I start xorg my mouse and keyboard doesn't work.

*Edit*

Disregard that last bit. Compiling xorg-server with udev flag on works. Slim makes me log me out after a few seconds but that's another thread.

*Edit*

Fixed last bit.

What about the HAL fdi policy files, which allow you to configure your hardware without the need of xorg.conf??
