Azimout's Linux weblog

HAL is deprecated and it’s being removed from all major distros. Some of the functionality went into udev, some into DeviceKit. Ubuntu calls this a Halsectomy. It’s called HalRemoval in Debian and Fedora.

You can safely remove the packages hal hal-info libhal-storage1.

PS Today I realised that running mount is equivalent to cat /etc/mtab
