HAL fails to start at boot
 
Hi all,
I just installed FC4 64bit on my Compaq presario R4100. It has a 3500+ AMD 64 processor. After a lot of research I have gotten the wireless network adapter working, and the clock at normal speed. However, I am really struggling getting the HAL working. It fails at startup and when I run

'/usr/sbin/hald --daemon=no --verbose=yes' I get the following output.

Can anyone help, I am pulling my hair out trying to get cd's and usb memory cards to mount!!

For now disable selinux on booting by adding selinux=0 to the kernel line within your /boot/grub/grub.conf file. Then update the system, many fixes have been done since FC4 came out and this one applies to your problem;

You can also view a good tutorial on this subject at;

Unfortunately the second link gives me a '404 Not Found'
Could you either update the link or provide the full tutorial name?
Thanks in advance

Well since the 2 months of my reply the site has changed and the link is no longer valid.....
