As you can see, xserver-xorg still uses hal on kfreebsd, but iirc KiBi did some work in that regard. Then there is GNOME/gvfs/gnome-mount using hal on kfreebsd: I don't know if hal support can be disabled in gvfs for kfreebsd and what consequences that would have. Most likely stuff like automounting wouldn't work anymore. Xfce 4.8 (for the most part) doesn't rely on hal anymore, at least on Linux. Yves-Alexis, what is the fallback on kfreebsd? Does Xfce 4.8 on kfreebsd still require hal or will it just have reduced functionality? KDE 4.6 respectively Solid in KDE SC 4.6 will use the newer interface like upower on Linux. I don't know what the KDE team plans for the kfreebsd ports. Will Solid still use hal there?
