Hey, I thought HAL is no longer a recommended option. Why direct to a solution with latest version release in 2007 ?

Well, it depends on what versions of the software you are running and what version of the kernel you are running.

The deprecation of HAL is an ongoing process and there is still plenty of software out there that rely on it.

There will be post about this very issue soon.

BTW, we're not "directing" to a solution. The info on this site is the result of trial and error. Take it or leave it as you will, and if you do have a better solution. Let us know.
