hal-0.5.12_rc1-r5 breaks X

with one comment

well actually it’s because the new default /etc/dbus-1/system.d/hal.conf doesn’t allow x to query input devices (probably). have to downgrade/upgrade again to just get the old default conf file.

never liked hal. why did i pull it in in the first place again??

  1. The problem is in the new
    /etc/dbus-1/system.d/hal.conf file
    I have copied the hal.conf file from previous version and hal works again.
    Looks like a bug.
