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!

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

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.

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!
