may well work. I did it a different way, described in this thread, and
it worked:

I will quote it:

==========================================

Re: media:/ nothing there, except cd

I found a temporary (I guess) solution.
I uncommented the last line of /etc/default/hal

This is the result:

_________

# This will run the hal daemon as normal user 'hal' with some additional
# privileges; This will not execute callout scripts as root (so fstab-sync
# won't work) and makes hal unable to do filesystem type autodetection for
# non-removable devices.
DAEMON_OPTS=

# This will run the hal daemon as user root
DAEMON_OPTS=--retain-privileges
