The 'problem' is likely that you didn't install the now-essential parted package if you want to use HAL from -current. From the ChangeLog:
l/parted-1.8.8-i486-1.tgz: Moved from /extra (this is now a HAL dependency).
Damn, error. You're not far from the truth, I do not read the changelog when I perform the upgrade.
I read it for major release but not for an upgrade with current (since my first slack installation with the 10.0, it's the first time I have problem with the chnagelog ...)
