yes loads.  By the way by setup is x86_64  non-multilib (64-bit only)

So far I tried the following:-

-----------A)re-created  haldaemon user and group I did not include this:-
|| [ $? == 9 ]   (originally I  I used the blfs instruction for hal-0.5.13 
which djid not include this.

--------B) redid the install with hal-0.5.13 .  (each time I removed the old 
version including the boot-script in /etc/init.d and the links in the rc.d's) 
plus all the stuff for hal

same result.

and /var/log/syslog is not much help.  It just says 
........starting the HAL daemon  ......[FAIL]
everything  else is running d-bus, autofs, random-number-generator etc

I am using   hal with hal-info-20091130.tar.gz  (as per the blfs book) 
  and I have autofs.  I am wondering if these are the problems?

When I did the re-install I dug    all the stuff out for hal  but was unsure 
where the stuff for  hal-info-20091130  was  (though I removed /user share/hal 
).  Is this  where it leaves stuff?


thanks for the advice  and others you might think of will be appreciated.
