what is hald-runner?
 
I am in the trial and error stage of making an Apache web server to run squid and dansguardian. I'm using slackware as my OS. My question is what is hald-runner, I typed ps ax to see what was running and that hald-runner is one of them. What is it?:study:

"HAL makes information about certain classes of hardware accessible in a uniform format. When a new device powers up within the system (an event known as hotplugging), it can broadcast an asynchronous signal on the system message bus of the D-Bus IPC mechanism giving details of the new device and its capabilities."
