Comment(by nkinkade):

 Replying to [comment:17 marek]:

 Seems that hald wasn't starting because /var/cache/hald didn't exist.  I
 deleted /etc/volatives.cache and rebooted, and this fixed the problem for
 me.  /etc/init.d/ wasn't creating the volatiles,
 presumably because /etc/volatiles.cache existed and VOLATILE_ENABLE_CACHE
 is set to "yes" in /etc/default/rcS.  How a stale volatiles.cache file got
 in /etc without the hald entries I don't know.  Maybe this information
 will be of use to someone.
