[Bug 53984] Re: hal cannot obtain list of devices

When you experience this, does 'pidof hald' (in a terminal) show any
number or is it completely empty? If it's empty, then this sounds like a
dbus problem (similar to bug 25931). In that case, can you please try

  sudo /etc/dbus-1/event.d/20hal start

and check whether it works then?
