Bug Description

Binary package hint: hal

I got a conffile prompt on a automatic dapper->hardy upgrade:

Setting up hal (0.5.10-2ubuntu2) ...^M
Installing new version of config file /etc/default/hal ...^M
Configuration file `/etc/udev/rules.d/95-hal.rules'^M
 ==> File on system created by you or by a script.^M
 ==> File also in package provided by package maintainer.^M
   What would you like to do about it ? Your options are:^M
    Y or I : install the package maintainer's version^M
    N or O : keep your currently-installed version^M
      D : show the differences between the versions^M
      Z : background this process to examine the situation^M
 The default action is to keep your current version.^M
*** 95-hal.rules (Y/I/N/O/D/Z) [default=N] ?

This bug was fixed in the package hal - 0.5.10+git20080301-1ubuntu2

hal (0.5.10+git20080301-1ubuntu2) hardy; urgency=low

  * debian/hal.preinst: Fix copy&paste error in mv_conffile(), so that the
    udev rules transition actually works and a standard dapper->hardy upgrade
    does not produce a conffile prompt. (LP: #172837)
