Description jastr 2004-09-16 19:49:17 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.2)
Gecko/20040809

Description of problem:
when hald starts, it consumes 100% of cpu.  

tracing with strace indicates that it's reading /dev/hda1, which is a
windows partition that's neither mounted nor listed in /etc/fstab.



Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
hal-0.2.97.cvs20040901-1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. service haldaemon start
2.
3.
    

Actual Results:  hald sits in an infinite loop reading /dev/hda1

Expected Results:  hald shouldn't spin

Additional info:

thinkpad t42p, running FC3T1 + updates
hal version is hal-0.2.97.cvs20040901-1

Created attachment 103929 [details]
output of "hald --daemon=no --verbose=yes"

this is only the first few thousand lines (I see it looping after that)

Hi, thanks for noticing this. It might be fixed upstream already so
when a new package is available I've add another comment to this bug.

Comment 3 David Zeuthen 2004-09-21 07:44:29 UTC
This should be fixed in hal-0.2.98-4 which is available in Rawhide
soon - alternatively you can download the SRPM from 

 http://people.redhat.com/davidz/hal-0.2.98-4.src.rpm

Comment 4 jastr 2004-09-21 15:19:13 UTC
Yes, 0.2.98-4 fixes it.  thanks!
