After 'yum update' no sound, networking or USB flash devices found!


Hi,

Yesterday i have updated my fedora 8 with 'yum update'. After this update there are no sound, no networks in NetworkManager and no USB Flashdrives found. It's really strange!

I've seen others reporting similar things. Basically I think the solution is to downgrade HAL and its related packages to the previous versions.

Basically you need to install the following older packages:

hal-0.5.10-1.fc8.i386.rpm
hal-libs-0.5.10-1.fc8.i386.rpm
hal-devel-0.5.10-1.fc8.i386.rpm
hal-cups-utils-0.6.13-2.fc8.i386.rpm
hal-info-20071030-1.fc8.noarch.rpm

You should be able to download them from one of the following mirrors:

http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/pub...Fedora/8/i386/

Once downloaded, you should be able to force RPM to install them over the newer versions using this command:

rpm -Uvh --force hal*rpm

Other people have reported such problems after installing Fedora Core 9, so you must fit in that category.
Downgrading is the best advice I could give you for now.

No, he didn't install F9... he simply ran a yum update on his existing F8 install. That just gets new F8 packages, it does not update him to F9 (as you can clearly see from his yum.log).

The problem is exactly what I posted above - the newer HAL that he updated to is broken.

Great! You may also want to add the following line to /etc/yum.conf:

exclude=hal*

This will prevent yum from trying to re-update the hal packages that you just downgraded.
