Hardware Information does not work.

Postby exploder on Tue Jul 03, 2007 9:25 pm

Does anyone know how to get "Hardware Information" working in LinuxMint? I clicked on the shortcut in the menu and it brings up a blank page and then goes away. I tried doing the same thing from the Live CD with the same result.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

This is the output I get from the terminal when I try and launch hal-device-manager.

Problem solved! I updated hal from the backports repository. When I updated hal, hal-info was installed with it. Now "hardware Information" is working!
