I've finally had a moment to make use of my hot-green 5.9 SOHO CD's I ordered way back when. A great distro for sure!! I'm stuck though - having read every post on this forum on HAL (I'm hoping saying that will lead to a foot-in-mouth moment when one of you points me to an already posted solution "...you didn't read this one!"), but no luck.
So, during boot I get a "hald FAILED" message. Messagebus loads just prior in the boot sequence, but hald fails every time. Previously I was able to call it afterwards, as root "/etc/rc.d/rc.hald start", but now even that doesn't work.
Any ideas on getting me going? I've switched back to VL-hot, and might stick with it regardless, but would be nice to know the why's and how's of this HAL fix should I ever want it back.
So...what do you lovely wizards need to know in order to dig me out of this little hole?
Many thanks in advance!
LLL-Edit: Marking this one solved - solution is in the last post on this page - scroll down.
Update 2: I found out what had updated glib - inkscape 0.46 requires it, and won't run without it...but I believe 0.45 will.
