peter@dalton:~$ aptitude search ~Dhal | grep "i "
i gimp - The GNU Image Manipulation Program
i hal - Hardware Abstraction Layer
i libgnomevfs2-0 - GNOME Virtual File System (runtime librari
i libgphoto2-port0 - gphoto2 digital camera port library
i libhal-storage1 - Hardware Abstraction Layer - shared librar
i libhd16 - Hardware identification system library
So as long as I want gimp and a few others, and until the
dependancies on hal are removed, hal must stay.
peter@dalton:~$ grep -e "(WW)" -e "(EE)" /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep -v cyr
(WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
(WW) AllowEmptyInput is on, devices using drivers 'kbd', 'mouse' or 'vmmouse' wi
ll be disabled.
(WW) Disabling Mouse0
(WW) Disabling Keyboard0
(WW) xf86OpenConsole: setpgid failed: Operation not permitted
(WW) xf86OpenConsole: setsid failed: Operation not permitted
(WW) RADEON(0): Direct rendering disabled
Nevertheless the mouse and keyboard work. Should the last
three lines be a concern?
Thanks, ... Peter E.
