Description Ricardo Berlasso 2008-07-10 18:39:20 EDT
Description of problem:
After the last update (June 10) the system restart by itself and during boot an
error that Hal cannot be started is shown.
After that, sound system is dead and my usb-modem (my only internet connection!)
refuses to work.
See this thread on the fedora forums:

Although I experienced this same problem with Fedora 8, I decided my resolution
was to reformat and install Fedora 9. My problems have gone away, HAL correctly
starts now.
Comment 2 Brad Rubenstein 2008-07-12 22:39:05 EDT
After the recent updates of packages hal, hal-info, hal-libs, and hal-devel, I
had the same problem.  Reverting just hal-info from version 20080607-2 to the
FC8 base release 20071030-1 sufficed to repair my system. 

The output of hald prior to the crash:
22:14:53.134 [E] acpi.c:758: Couldn't open /proc/acpi/button/sleep: Error
opening directory '/proc/acpi/button/sleep': No such file or directory

Comment 5 Steve Wilson 2008-07-16 16:57:16 EDT
I too had the same problem, it is OK to update all hal except from hal-info.
Have not gotten around yet to working out what the problem is with this.

Just follow the fedora forum thread linked above, everything is explained there.

Duplicate of bug 452701.
There are RPMs with the fix linked in that bug, too.
