Haldaemon fails on startup


I am running Fedora Core 4 x86_64 on an ASUS laptop.

Everything was fine, HAL ran fine before, but a yum update I did last week must have changed something, as now the haldaemon fails on startup. I don't know how to find out more about the problem, so I'll need help in that too. Thanks ahead of time!

check /var/log/messages and the output of "dmesg" for more details. Can't think of anything to suggest instantly... i think it depends on dbus... is dbus running ok?

In /var/log/messages, the most common error in there is
"<date/time> . . . fedora kernel: ACPI-0145: *** Error: Invalid owner_id: 00"

Is this a user problem for hald? If so what are its requirements?

So far I have found the same type of problem.
Hald and dbus-daemon do not start properly from the init scripts.
I can start dbus-daemon manualy (using --system) and then
start hald manualy. This is prbably not what the system realy wants.
I am thinking there may be a problem in selinux-policy-targeted-1.27.1-2.3
I am running FC4 and update nightly via yum.
Anyone know of what in selinux may be blocking the normal behavor of
dbus-daemon or hald?

As of now, my problem has been fixed by a new update of the kernel and lots of things, so I don't know what fixed it really, it just works now.

jtmillard still seems to have a problem with his though, if anyone wants to help him out.

I am on the same version. I'm just fully updated. It might have to do with your specific system.
