Missing hal-luks-setup scripts in hal package (Edgy)

Bug #118644 reported by TJ on 2007-06-04
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
hal (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: hal

On Edgy 32-bit (not sure about 64-bit) the hal package ( has scripts missing from /usr/lib/hal/scripts.

In trying to get LUKS (dm-crypt external USB hard drives) to mount, the system wasn't auto-mounting as expected. After comparing the package list for Feisty's hal it seems that Edgy's hal is missing at least these files:



Both Edgy and Feisty packages have the file


which defines the scripts to call; in particular:

 <append key="org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume.Crypto.method_execpaths" type="strlist">hal-luks-setup</append>
 <append key="org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume.Crypto.method_execpaths" type="strlist">hal-luks-teardown</append>

In Edgy these scripts are missing.
