@Torsten

Can you add some more details? Which PPA / version of MM?

Also, HAL was removed as a MM dependency much before Karmic, see the following commit from the MM git tree:

    udev: move device probing and detection to udev

    Get rid of dependency on HAL, using libgudev instead. Fix up the plugin API
    to no longer use either HAL or udev defines, but let plugins use whatever
    mechanism they want for getting more information out of the device given the
    subsystem and device node name.
