Fedora core 5 does not appear to ship with a hal ".fdi" file for pda
rules.  At any rate, lshal shows my device, it's visor module status,
but no pda capabilities.  I haven't yet been able to create one that
works for me.

Maybe some HAL guru can post a compatible rule set (I tried installing
one I found dating from March 2005, but it didn't work for me).  What is
the status of .fdi files and why doesn't Fedora ship with a pda one that
works?  It might be safer for us to use HAL for notification, but
continue to use the devices.xml file to identify recognised
vendor/product ID pairs rather than relying on the HAL "pda" capability.
