Let me preface this, I am completely new to fedora and red hat. (and noob otherwise
I installed fc3, it went rather smoothly. upon boot, i got a smartd failure error, and had and am still having problems getting my wireless nic to work.
anyway, i ran the up2date thing, and updated the kernel. then i updated the rest of the stuff. at some point, upon rebooting i noticed that HAL daemon failed.
the order i did things-
install nvidia drivers
update rest of stuff
i noticed the HAL daemon failed after the fourth step. from what i can find, it appears HAL is something for gnome, I did not install gnome i choose KDE instead.
My question is, how can i stop this from failing/loading, and do i need it?
