No HAL in Slackware 14, what about k3b?
 
Hi guys,

since HAL has been removed from Slackware, and since k3b requires it, should I just give up on k3b (unless I install HAL)? I expect the answer to be yes, but I'd just like to make sure :)

Thanks!

Que? Have you tried it?

(For a moment I thought you were speaking Spanish :) )
No, I didn't even know it. But if I can't use k3b, I'd rather spend some time and learn how to use mkisofs and cdrecord (besides, I can't open Que's home page).

The 'Que' is as defined at 1. here. http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=que So, it was Spanish!

I have had no problems using k3b in Slackware 14.0.

(Hahahahaha, ok, got it :) I thought you were talking about http://mac.softpedia.com/get/Drivers...USB-CDRW.shtml , to which anyway I had hardly taken a look, since it actually isn't even a burning program, and not even for Linux.)

I tried k3b yesterday for the first time in Slackware 14 (new laptop; on my older one, with Slackware 13.1, it works), and it complained it could find no drives. Now that I think of it, I probably didn't add myself to the "cdrom" group, and running as root gave me some dbus error. But then I looked up on LQ/google, and I found out this thing about HAL, so I thought that was the problem and forgot about the "cdrom" group thing. So, I'll check it again as soon as I get home, and see if it was just a permission issue, and report back here.

Thanks!

Slackware never will be released with broken software. If K3B wouldn't be working in Slackware it wouldn't be a part of the repository.

K3b does not need HAL

It's working just fine in Slackware 14.0

Yes. No problems with k3b in 14.0.

And another with no problems.

Though if you're running slackware-current be sure to read the Changelog. You have to delete 70-persistent-cd.rules and reboot to handle a change in the way such drives are addressed.

simopal6 01-29-2013 03:10 AM

Ok, sorry everyone, it was just a permission issue... :) I was misleaded by the fact that everybody said the k3b required HAL, so didn't think about the easiest solution.

Thank you all!

Glad you got it sorted out.

Might want to mark the thread SOLVED. Glad you got it sorted out.
