Yes I already know that so there is no need to be a condescending prick about it. I quickly had a look and missed the yum command at the top. I was under the impression that HAL dependencies had been removed based on the Ubuntu halsectomy page but it appears on closer inspection that it relies on custom patches rather than being part of the mainline.

No condescension was intended (I am only being careful to support my points, given the propensity for people to try to attack what I say, just as you have joined in). The only point I was intending to convey was that HAL is probably more entrenched than you may realise.
