Description mwlucas 2007-04-23 00:50:02 UTC
I have installed hal-

/usr/local/etc/rc.d/hald claims a dependency on usbd, which no longer
exists (at least on -current).

Shouldn't this be devd instead?


Replace usbd with devd in startup script.

OK, so this is possibly the most trivial ports PR ever, but I thought
I should file it anyway.  It might affect someone sometime, eventually.
rcorder /etc/rc.d/* /usr/local/etc/rc.d/* | head -10
rcorder: Circular dependency on provision `mountcritremote' in file `/etc/rc.d/archdep'.
rcorder: requirement `usbd' in file `/usr/local/etc/rc.d/hald' has no providers.

devd has been added, but usbd cannot be removed yet since it is important 
to have it there for 5.X and 6.X systems.  hald and usbd will both compete 
for /dev/usb.  If the user wants usbd to work, it must be started before

  FreeBSD ports repository

  Modified files:
    sysutils/hal         Makefile 
    sysutils/hal/files   hald.in 
  Add devd to the list of hald's rc.d dependencies.  Note: we cannot remove
  usbd yet because 6.X and 5.X still have it, and if it is desired, then
  it should be started BEFORE hald.
