HAL daemon does not run

Hi guys,

I built a kernel under Fedora 3. Everything seem fine, only thing that makes me crazy is that the HAL daemon does not run. It does startup [OK] during boot process, but when startx, gives :

AUDIT:Fri Sep 8 11:37:45 2006:420 X:client 7 rejected from local host
libhal.c 767: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceDoesNotExist raised
"Service "org.freedesktop.Hal" does not exist"
** (gnome-volume-manager:498): WARNING ** : manager.c/930: seems that HAL is not running
libhal.c 2284 : Error Sending msg: Service "org.freedesktop.Hal" does not exist

I also got many lines of the same info at the console when I ctrl+alt+1:

**(gnome-terminal:4250) WARNING **: No handler for control sequence 'device-control-string' defined.
**(gnome-terminal:4250) WARNING **: No handler for control sequence 'device-control-string' defined.

when shutdown the machine, console say:

Shuting down HAL daemon: [failed]

Does anyone can give a clue what I need to configure during make menuconfig

Thanks in advance.
