Hmm. Hal is running as user 68 (haldaemon). hald-runner and hald-addon-

/var/log/messages shows the device coming up as sdb1, and everything's

He has subdued monsters, he has solved enigmas. But he should also
redeem his monsters and enigmas; into heavenly children should he
transform them. Thus spoke Zarathustra.
