Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 214749
hal crashes on gnome-power-manager startup
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:47:32 EST
Description of problem:
The hal daemon crashes when gnome-power-manager starts. This also crashes
gnome-power-manager and produces a bug buddy screen with a dump for that
application. (Which I will attach if it would be useful)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Start hal, then start gnome-power-manager. I get this when just turning on my
machine and logging in.
Please let me know what else you need to diagnose

Also happens with kernel-2.6.18-1.2784.fc6 and hal-0.5.8.1-4.fc6
I have updated the "FC" package to version 0.5.9. Everything works fine
now. I can send them to interested users [or attach them here (?)].

after updating the "hal" package.
Everything works just fine with
