Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm trying to get hald started, but not having much luck. Starting hald with daemon=no and verbose=yes:
21:03:46.901 [I] hald.c:634: hal 0.5.10
21:03:46.912 [I] hald.c:699: Will not daemonize
21:03:46.933 [I] hald_dbus.c:5284: local server is listening at unix:abstract=/var/run/hald/dbus-MWVIwqejq8,guid=bd9511d0691ca5bdeddcc700483ca162
21:03:47.238 [I] hald_runner.c:301: Runner has pid 5423
21:03:47.239 [W] ci-tracker.c:299: Could not get uid for connection: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NameHasNoOwner Could not get UID of name 'org.freedesktop.DBus': no such name
21:03:47.239 [E] hald_dbus.c:4944: Cannot get caller info for org.freedesktop.DBus
hald-runner: error while loading shared libraries: libglib-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
*** [DIE] hald_runner.c:runner_died():202 : Runner died
The strange this is that libglib _is_ installed (and works). I did an strace on the problem zone, and get:
clone(child_stack=0, flags=CLONE_CHILD_CLEARTID|CLONE_CHILD_SETTID|SIGCHLD, child_tidptr=0xb7c4a708) = 5428
close(9) = 0
read(8, "", 8) = 0
close(8) = 0
gettimeofday(hald-runner: error while loading shared libraries: libglib-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I cannot find much information on 'clone' on the 'net, but I suspect that in this case, the cloned function is not receiving the environment from the main program, and thus cannot find LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
Can someone point me to more in-depth info on 'clone', or, even better, indicate a solution of this problem?
PD: The hald/dbus etc come from Slackware-current.
For a strange reason, the path to libglib wasn't in /etc/ld.so.cache. Strange, because I haven't edit
that file for years, and compiled hundreds of programs, and never had any complaint (which is why I
never suspected it).
Anyway - that was all. hald is up-and-running.
