Hello everyone. I need some help with this. I installed HAL via yum on my
system. When I try to run hal-device-manager i get this

ImportError: could not import gnomecanvas
ImportError: cannot import name DockItem from bonobo.ui
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/hal-device-manager", line 18, in ?
  File "/usr/share/hal/device-manager/DeviceManager.py", line 53, in __init__
    self.bus = dbus.SystemBus()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/dbus.py", line 218, in __init__
    Bus.__init__(self, Bus.TYPE_SYSTEM)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/dbus.py", line 121, in __init__
    self._connection = dbus_bindings.bus_get(bus_type)
  File "dbus_bindings.pyx", line 1476, in dbus_bindings.bus_get
dbus_bindings.DBusException: Failed to connect to socket
/var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: No such file or directory

How do I fix this problem? I really need HAL working...
