https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=258224 Bug ID: 258224 Summary: deskutils/calibre: usbms relies on deleted HAL port Product: Ports & Packages Version: Latest Hardware: Any OS: Any Status: New Severity: Affects Many People Priority: --- Component: Individual Port(s) Assignee: madpilot@FreeBSD.org Reporter: email@example.com Flags: maintainer-feedback?(madpilot@FreeBSD.org) Assignee: madpilot@FreeBSD.org On FreeBSD, calibre relied on HAL for the mounting of ereaders that use USB mass storage (usbms). HAL was deleted from the ports system back in February 2021, and it appears that it was never a formal requirement of the port (probably relied on it being pulled in from the Desktop.) I'm looking into replacing the HAL code with BSDisks/Udisks2, but I haven't been a programmer in a long, long time. I thought I'd file a bug report to see if someone with more current skills can help. On an installed calibre the files in question are /usr/local/lib/calibre/calibre/devices/usbms/device.py and hal.py in the same directory. -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
