To test if the timeout is the problem, try to recompile hal with a greater timeout:

- apt-get source hal
- cd hal-0.5.9.1
- edit files hald/util.h and hald/util.h and change line:
  #define HAL_HELPER_TIMEOUT 10000
in
#define HAL_HELPER_TIMEOUT 60000
- then build the package
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -us -uc

install the hal package created

You might need to install additional packages to be able to compile hal.
