Question Unable to start HAL (haldaemon) on Fedora 8 x86_64


Hello all, I've just installed Fedora 8 and found that there is no sound. Running alsamixer gives:
Code:
*** PULSEAUDIO: Unable to connect: Connection refused

alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: Connection refused
Running pulseaudio gives:
Code:
W: pid.c: Stale PID file, overwriting.
E: module-hal-detect.c: Couldn't connect to hald: (null): (null)
process 3597: Attempt to remove filter function 0x2aaab16f6020 user data 0x618590, but no such filter has been added
  D-Bus not built with -rdynamic so unable to print a backtrace
Aborted
Then trying to restart HAL gives:
Code:
Stopping HAL daemon:                                       [FAILED]
Starting HAL daemon:                                       [FAILED]
I've just done a yum update, but to no avail. Has anyone else had this problem? I'm on an Intel Core 2 Duo system on an Intel DG965WH motherboard, using the integrated graphics. Any help is much appreciated.

I've tried running hald from the console and get this output:

Code:
[root@localhost mnt]# /usr/sbin/hald --verbose=yes
07:26:58.304 [I] hald.c:634: hal 0.5.10
07:26:58.305 [I] hald.c:643: Will daemonize
07:26:58.305 [I] hald.c:644: Becoming a daemon
[root@localhost mnt]# ps ax | grep hal
31328 pts/2    S+     0:00 grep hal
It appears that hald silently dies. SELinux is disabled. Very strange. Here's the corresponding /var/log/messages lines:

check selinux

I had no sound on my computer when I updated to fedora 8. Found out that selinux was blocking the use of sound. I don't know if that is the same in your situation but I thought I would throw that out.
