Introspect error The name org.freedesktop.Hal was not provided Running RHN_REGISTER

You would think something as simple as running rhn_register would just run and register for updates without any issues. There are times when this is not the case and today was one of them.

The issue occurred when running rhn_register on RedHat EL 5.4 (Tikanga) servers when after selecting next on teh review screen I received the error. “Introspect error: The name org.freedesktop.Hal was not provided by any .service files”

From the error I noticed Hal in the name and upon a friendly search in the RedHat forums noticed reference to haldaemon not running. So the correction is simple.

# service haldaemon start

Now re-run rhn_register and you are golden!!
