Auto Mount not working for USB? Hald not running?


When I click on Applications then Desktop Preferences and Removable Drives and Media I get the following message:

The "hald" service is required but not currently running. Enable the service and rerun this applet, or contact your system administrator. Note: You need Linux kernel 2.6 for volume management to work.

Do any of you have a clue as to how I can fix this? It's like this on all three of my Debian Net installs... PLEASE HELP!

to start with try
/etc/initd/hald start <- i think debian uses initd
and see if it will work. you just need to add hald to ur daemons

If what you were asking me to type that in from command line I get the following...


user@Debian:~$ /etc/initd/hald start
bash: /etc/initd/hald: No such file or directory

I think the issue is that I'm still running kernal 2.4, do you think that could be it? How do upgrade and is there a lot of risk in doing it?

using debian? there shouldn't really be any risk. I don't really know if that would be the prob or not...there are a lot of people still using the 2.4

I know I'm years late, BUT it should be

$ sudo /etc/init.d/hald restart or start
