NAME

       hald - daemon for Hardware Abstraction Layer

SYNOPSIS

       hald    [--daemon=yes|no]    [--verbose=yes|no]   [--retain-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
              running in the background, thus  becoming  a  daemon.   You  can
              suppress this behaviour by using no here.

       --retain-privileges
              Run  as root instead of normal user (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.
