    please remove it from the corresponding tasks.
    Lenny should install fine everywhere and work *without* discover.

    Can you explain why adding a dependency on discover make it unfit for
    mass consumption?

    Why is it important to avoid discover in Lenny?

    The discover dependency was added to hotkey-setup to solve #483200, as
    it was judged to be better than adding PCI ids directly in
    hotkey-setup to work around the fact that /etc/X11/xorg.conf more and
    more often will not include information about the X driver used.

    When this is said, there are rumors that the task done by hotkey-setup
    now can be handled by hal/dbus instead. I have not verified that this
    is true, but I have seen information under /usr/share/hal/fdi/ that
    make me suspect it is correct. If hal/dbus do a better job of
    handling the hotkeys, hotkey-setup should be removed from Debian.

    Happy hacking,

    HAL does all the necessary setup for the hotkeys on my laptop and seems to
    be the recommended approach upstream (and with input hotplugging in X, HAL
    will become a pretty hard dependency of the X server if I've understood
    things correctly).

    afais the obnixious init script is gone.
    so i don't care too much, but there stems the strong arg against it.

    hotkeys are working just fine here with latest hal and without
    hotkey-setup on a x61s mostly running Lenny.
