HAL Daemon fails. USB Hard drive does not mount
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:48:49 EST
Description of problem: HAL Daemon fails. USB Hard drive does not mount
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Happens on every bootup
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Power on PC
2. Hal Daemon fails on bootup
3. Have to restart the daemon by hand e.g. service haldaemon start
lshal -m and power on the USB drive
Start monitoring devicelist:
acpi_BAT0 property battery.voltage.current = 16550 (0x40a6)
Powering off the USB hard drive shows
The drive icon never shows on the desktop.
The problem seems to stem with the USB drive plugged in but not powered on.
Unplugging the USB drive before bootup and the problem goes away.
