HALD(8)                     System Manager's Manual                    HALD(8)



NAME
       hald - daemon for Hardware Abstraction Layer


SYNOPSIS
       hald [--daemon=yes|no] [--verbose=yes|no] [--drop-privileges] [--help]


DESCRIPTION
       The  HAL  daemon detects devices present in the system and provides the
       org.freedesktop.Hal service through D-BUS.



OPTIONS
       These programs follow the usual GNU  command  line  syntax,  with  long
       options  starting  with  two  dashes  (`-').   A  summary of options is
       included below.

       -h, --help
              Show summary of options.

       --daemon=yes|no
              By default, hald detaches from the current tty and  starts  run-
              ning  in  the  background, thus becoming a daemon.  You can sup-
              press this behaviour by using no here.

       --drop-privileges
              Run as normal user instead of root (calling of external  scripts
              to modify fstab etc. will not work when not running as root)

       --verbose=yes|no
              hald prints out debug information when this is set to yes.
