openSUSE 11.2: hald does not start

Hello all,

yesterday i updated my my notebook hp nx8220 to openSUSE 11.2 and now hald does not start, therefore NetworkManager does not manage networks etc. :frowning:

I tried running running hald in gdb and got the following output:

Is there anybody with an idea how to get it running?

Thanks,

Problem solved :slight_smile:
I simply installed package hal again and now it works.
