Hal can't be updated

Bug #189225 reported by Erik Harren on 2008-02-05
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
hal (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: hal

I tried to do a dist-upgrade and failed to configure hal (0.5.10-ubuntu5 - dpkg gets error #1). hal-cups-utils stops with the same error-message.
Is there anyone able to solve this kind of Problem?

This is the (german) error-message generated by dpkg:

Richte hal ein (0.5.10-5ubuntu6) ...
 * Reloading system message bus config... [ OK ]
 * Starting Hardware abstraction layer haldinvoke-rc.d: initscript hal, action "start" failed.
dpkg: Fehler beim Bearbeiten von hal (--configure):
 Unterprozess post-installation script gab den Fehlerwert 1 zurück
dpkg: Abhängigkeitsprobleme verhindern Konfiguration von hal-cups-utils:
 hal-cups-utils hängt ab von hal; aber:
  Paket hal ist noch nicht konfiguriert.
dpkg: Fehler beim Bearbeiten von hal-cups-utils (--configure):
 Abhängigkeitsprobleme - lasse es unkonfiguriert

System: Alpha2 with all updates, iP C2Q Q6600, 4GB ECC, Asus P5WDG2 pro, Asus 8600GTS-256MB

You can close this thread as hal worked again after one or two weeks of removing and reinstallation.
