[Bug 31517] Re: hal-device-manager does not load

I'm still getting the same errors / problems other have mentioned, and
I'm running the latest version of Dapper (fresh install, just installed
it yesterday).

It hangs at boot after:
Starting Hardware abstraction layer hald...        [ ok ]

Then says:
Internal error Failed to Initialize HAL!

After bootup "lshal" doesn't work, it says that HAL isn't running, but does work after I run:
sudo /etc/init.d/dbus restart

Re-installing HAL isn't really a good solution, as uninstalling it will
also remove ubuntu-desktop, and a few other (somewhat) crucial

Here are some of the versions of the software I'm running, they might prove useful:
hal 0.5.7-1ubuntu18
hal-device-manager 0.5.7-1ubuntu18
dbus 0.60-6ubuntu8
dbus-1-utils 0.60-6ubuntu8

hal-device-manager does not load
