hal-device-manager problem!

[root@localhost kevin]# hal-device-manager
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/hal-device-manager", line 9, in ?
    import gnome
ImportError: No module named gnome

I have installed gnome in /opt/gnome, and why this program can not find it?

Re: hal-device-manager problem!

I've been having the same issue but haven't had much time to troubleshoot. I would, however, love it if someone could figure this out.

this should be a bug report or not?
gnome-python should be a dep for hal right?

Re: hal-device-manager problem!

No, because hal is a hardware abstraction layer and hal-device-manager is just an additional tool that queries it. Pulling in gnome-python as a dependency would make KDE users also willing to use hal require them to install a complete gnome desktop (I already hate gnome-python as build dependency :X)

Re: hal-device-manager problem!

Then how about making a separate package with the querying tool that does depend on gnome-python? Like this, the hal package still doesn't need a dependency on gnome-python.

Re: hal-device-manager problem!

Or have a post-install message saying, "If you want to user the hal-device-manager, be sure to install gnome-python"

Re: hal-device-manager problem!

I think I'm splitting the package in a while, since we will have circular dependencies without it in the next gnome release:
more and more gnome stuff support HAL and DBUS, including gnome-vfs. Wouldn't it be stupid to have gnome-panel depend on gnome-vfs, which depends on HAL as a build-dependency for HAL?

Re: hal-device-manager problem!

I did a splitup for hal and hal-device-manager. The hal-device-manager is currently in testing because of the new python, though it might work with the old 2.3 version.
