I've been running a bunch of Slackware 11 servers for quite some time, and they work like a charm. I feel I have a good fundamental knowledge about how they work and how to manage them well.
Lately though I've begun adding a few Slackware 12 servers to my lineup, and here I've come upon the rc.hald script.
My question is: Is this necessary for a server, or can I just do the chmod -x rc.hald dance and leave it off?
I know HAL is a hardware abstraction layer, but I'm not 100% sure about what it actually does, besides perhaps aiding me in using f.ex. my camera on my desktop computer. Or?
Any and all advice is more than welcome.
