Still remember the “hal is dead, long live DeviceKit” buzz? It’s time to finally lay our hands on it.
DeviceKit and DeviceKit-power themselves are available for a while in Jaunty’s universe, but installing them by themselves is pretty boring, of course.
Last Saturday I packaged the new gnome-power-manager 2.25.x which is now devkit-ified and doesn’t use hal any more. It is now available in the ubuntu-desktop PPA. Please try it, break it, and complain over there 🙂
It works quite well for me, the only thing I noticed is that it currently seems to break my hibernate hotkey. Still investigating..
