Hardware Information does not work.

Postby exploder » 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?

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!
