Description Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2016-10-12 19:18:26 UTC
As discussed in upower-pm-utils shouldn't be needed now that we have consolekit1... but we will need to check each reverse dep to see how to replace it finally :/
Comment 1 Christoph Schulz 2018-11-23 19:24:04 UTC
Kodi's power management (media-tv/kodi) does only work with upower-pm-utils, not with upower, on non-systemd systems, cf. Please reconsider your decision or explain how to retain kodi's power management features (hibernate after <n> minutes of inactivity) with current upower versions.
Comment 2 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2018-11-23 19:27:23 UTC
Please don't spam the tracker. If there is a problem with kodi, file a new bug against it and make it block this tracker so the maintainer can take appropriate steps.
