I decided to upgrade to KDE 3.5.6 the other day, and now I can't use my cdrom drive, apparently because HAL doesn't work. When I try to open the drive in KDE (the drive works fine in the console), I get:
Feature only available with HAL
I have reinstalled the following packages (all from Kenny Z) in order and checked all their dependencies, and a few hours of googling and looking around hasn't helped much. Also, the dbus daemon is running (I just put "dbus-launch" in my /etc/rc.d/rc.4) according to ps -e.
Running slapt-get seems to indicate that all the important parts of my system are up-to-date. I'm running Slack 11.0 with a 188.8.131.52 kernel on a Dell Inspiron 5150. Everything else works just fine. Any thoughts?
