Description Matthias Apitz 2015-12-12 09:29:03 UTC
Sometimes the hald started during boot goes into an unusable state which let for example the KDE power management system think that there is no battery; 

ps(1) shows the situation like this:


885  -  Ds   0:00,01 /usr/local/sbin/hald
890  -  I    0:00,03 hald-runner
764 v0- I    0:00,01 /usr/local/sbin/hald
988 v0  R    0:00,00 fgrep hal

The proc (here 885) can not be killed, not even with -9, and a query for hal does not work:

$ qdbus --system
:1.2
 org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit
:1.25
:1.26
:1.27
:1.28
:1.3
:1.31
:1.32
:1.4
 org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1
:1.40
 org.freedesktop.DBus

i.e. nothing about hald :-(

This is with system r285885 and ports r392920 (July 26).

Is this still relevant?
No maintainer feedback till now!
