Description Alexander 2008-04-21 10:08:53 UTC
I'm a Mandriva 2008 user, trying to install hal (0.5.11) from git. Since I've installed new D-Bus (1.1.20), hald doesn't runs on startup, but D-bus does. Simply D-Bus doesn't allowes connection to "org.freedesktop.Hal". When i run "hald --daemon=no --verbose=yes":

and then it kills itself. Googling wasn't successful, and in mailing lists I haven't seen such troubles. No.. I saw same posts, but no answers...

So there are .conf files of dbus,hal, paths, and install logs of this apps.
1. d-bus system.conf:
<!-- This configuration file controls the systemwide message bus.
     Add a system-local.conf and edit that rather than changing this 
     file directly. -->

<!-- Note that there are any number of ways you can hose yourself
     security-wise by screwing up this file; in particular, you
     probably don't want to listen on any more addresses, add any more
     auth mechanisms, run as a different user, etc. -->

<!DOCTYPE busconfig PUBLIC "-//freedesktop//DTD D-Bus Bus Configuration 1.0//EN"

  <!-- Our well-known bus type, do not change this -->

  <!-- Run as special user -->

  <!-- Fork into daemon mode -->

  <!-- Write a pid file -->

  <!-- Only allow socket-credentials-based authentication -->

  <!-- Only listen on a local socket. (abstract=/path/to/socket 
       means use abstract namespace, don't really create filesystem 
       file; only Linux supports this. Use path=/whatever on other 
       systems.) -->

         even if they aren't in here -->
    <allow send_destination="org.freedesktop.DBus"/>
    <allow receive_sender="org.freedesktop.DBus"/>
    <!-- valid replies are always allowed -->

  <!-- Config files are placed here that among other things, punch 
       holes in the above policy for specific services. -->

       in this standard file -->

2. hal.conf:

Let me know if I missed any information, please. And if you find me a fool, please, let me know cause I'm solving this troble with hald for a few weeks... ))((
Anyone, help me, PLZ...
