Description Bart Vanbrabant 2005-03-15 11:40:56 EST
Description of problem:
The haldaemon can't be started any more. When I start it with
--daemon=no and --verbose=yes I get this:

17:35:16.855 [I] hald.c:498: hal 0.5.0.cvs20050310
17:35:16.855 [I] hald.c:502: Will not daemonize
17:35:16.877 [I] osspec.c:305: sysfs mount point is '/sys'
17:35:16.884 [I] osspec.c:310: proc mount point is '/proc'
*** [DIE] osspec.c:osspec_init():328 : Unable to bind to netlink socket

I get not that has something to do with hal in dmesg. When I run hal
with strace I get these lines at the end:

munmap(0xb7ed5000, 4096)                = 0
socket(PF_NETLINK, SOCK_DGRAM, 15)      = 7
getpid()                                = 25818
bind(7, {sa_family=AF_NETLINK, pid=25818, groups=ffffffff}, 12) = -1
EPERM (Operation not permitted)
fstat64(1, {st_mode=S_IFREG|0644, st_size=0, ...}) = 0
0) = 0xb7ed5000
write(1, "*** [DIE] osspec.c:osspec_init()"..., 72) = 72
munmap(0xb7ed5000, 4096)                = 0
exit_group(1)                           = ?

I'm running the latest version of fedora from rawhide.

You need --retain-privileges (look at the /etc/init.d/haldaemon init
script script)
