On a probably (un)related note, I tried "lshw", and it prints "PCI (sysfs)", then runs for an hour taking 50% of my dual core CPU before I Ctrl+C it. "lspci" works though.

If there is any reason hal-device-manager fails, could it probably roots from lshw? But then, why gnome-device-manager works? Is it not using lshw? (I'm not familiar with Ubuntu's/GNOME/Linux internals, as you might have guessed from my 'wild' guesses).
