hal not working?

Check if you are not mounting something in /sys/bus/usb. Running hald from the command-line will give a feeling about the possible error. I noticed that my fstab had the following line:

none /sys/bus/usb usbfs defaults 0 0

Then hald was unable to read /sys/bus/usb/devices/ and /sys/bus/usb/drivers. After I changed it, everything started working and the icons for the devices showed up in the KDE desktop :-)

Finally I will be able to use a USB Drive in Linux as it is used in Windows systems.
