failed to initialize a HAL context


Hi, Everytime I log into Gnome Desktop I get this message :

failed to initialize a HAL context

Here is the exact error message when I look into auth.log

Quote:
gnome-keyring-daemon[22720]: failed to initialize a HAL context: (null)
gnome-keyring-daemon[22720]: Scheduling hal init retry
I'm on a Debian Linux system.

Any clues ?

Alright, It seems this issue was easy to resolve. I simply Reinstalled HAL and everything is back to normal.
