Package: hal
Version: 0.5.13-4
Severity: normal


I just updatd from sid and spotted the following

Setting up hal (0.5.13-4) ...
Reloading system message bus config...done.
insserv: warning: current stop runlevel(s) (0 1 6) of script `cpufrequtils' overwrites defaults (empty).
Starting Hardware abstraction layer: haldinvoke-rc.d: initscript hal, action "start" failed.
dpkg: error processing hal (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:

Total disk space freed by localepurge: 0 KiB

E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

And the message is correct, hal is failing, indeed, when starting wth /etc/init.d/hal start.

The likely reason is that hald is still running happily even though it was long stopped
105       3116  0.0  0.2  37744  2384 ?        Ss   15:03   0:03 /usr/sbin/hald
After killing hald manually, the package was installing just happily. So, the stop
needs some help.
