Problem running HAL on fresh Slackware 12.1 installation on P1510 [solved]


As the topic says, I got problems getting hald to run on a fresh slackware 12.1 install on my Lifebook P1510 laptop.

running /usr/sbin/hald --daemon=no as root:
Code:
Runner started - allowed paths are '/usr/libexec:/usr/lib/hal/scripts:/usr/bin'

(process:3467): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_hash_table_foreach_remove: assertion `hash_table != NULL' failed

** (process:3467): CRITICAL **: hal_property_get_string: assertion `prop->type == HAL_PROPERTY_TYPE_STRING' failed
*** [DIE] device_info.c:rules_match_and_merge_device():1088 : Rule is NULL on jump
00:28:24.515 [D] addon-input.c:486: An error occured, exiting cleanly
I didn't find any usefull info though google, so I'm turning to you nice gurus here at linuxforums.

Anyone got an idea what's wrong?

I *might* have had a similar problem, forcing a reload of udev solved it for me. See the thread:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...n-12.1-662009/

Hope that helps.

ps there's a search function on this forum as well.

Thanks.
But you solution didn't help though.

Then I followed the google link from rg3 to this post here at LQ.

There the problem was solved by updating /etc/ld.so.cache, since the path to libglib was missing.
I tried rebuilding ld.so.cache and got some result...

Now, at least, hald don't die with a GLIB error.
But it still dies.

Code:
Runner started - allowed paths are '/usr/libexec:/usr/lib/hal/scripts:/usr/bin'
*** [DIE] device_info.c:rules_match_and_merge_device():962 : Rule is NULL on jump
And I'm still in the dark as to why. Makes me want to learn HAL I guess.
Well, back to the search engines.

Please show it if you know it


EDIT:

did a google-search for device_info.c:rules_match_and_merge_device():962 : Rule is NULL on jump
1 result:
http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=176380

one person solved problem by removing a completely incorrect fdi file

Okay, my bad.

Rebuild of ld.so.cache did work.

Thing is, I had downgraded the hal package just to test and forgot to upgrade to the hal versjon in 12.1
hald started to work after I removed libmtp's .fdi file, but since installed hal was fra 12.0 it's not so strange that hal thought an .fdi file was incorrect.
Hence the error from last post.

I upgraded hal and restored libmtp .fdi file and now it works.

thanks to cor67393 for puching me the right way
