KDE 3.4.x does not build with hal 0.5.x and dbus 0.3x. However, trunk has b=
ported, and it seems that many distributions already use this version of th=
HAL backend without problem.
I have no plan to backport hal 0.5 support to KDE 3.4.x, because I consider =
this as a new feature and not a bugfix. Still, it could easily be done.
Besides, it would be nice to see HAL/DBus added to the 3.4 requirements lis=
t : =
HAL =3D 0.4.x/DBus =3D 0.2x
HAL is an hardware abstraction layer listing hardware property and making =
them available through a DBus service
the media kioslave can use HAL to list media and to listen to hotplug even=
If HAL is not running, media:/ will fall back on fstab tracking.
