  You must be living right! After full updates yesterday, my box locked when it
reached hal in the DAEMONS list. Normal kernel and LTS both locked (linux
3.2.5-1, and linux-lts 3.0.20-1) It was bad enough I had to boot to single user
mode just to get to boot. On 'init 3' it hung on hal again, but switching to
tty2, I was surprised that hal was actually running:

[17:47 providence:/etc/udev/rules.d] # ps ax | grep hal
22701 ?        Ssl    0:00 /usr/sbin/hald
22702 ?        S      0:00 hald-runner
22732 ?        S      0:01 /usr/lib/hal/hald-addon-acpi

  init 5 from tty3 brought up kdm from 3.5.12.

  I have absolutely nothing in rules.d:

[17:47 providence:/etc/udev/rules.d] # l /etc/udev/rules.d/
total 8
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Feb  8 07:54 .
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Feb 13 13:40 ..

  I built and updated hal from AUR to 0.5.14-7, and I still have no
/etc/udev/rules.d/90-hal.rules:2. Should I? I have remotely downgraded udev to
180-1 to see if that helps. I'll know tomorrow when I get to the office.
