If you try to watch Amazon Instant Video, you may see the following error: an error occurred and your player could not be updated
Amazon Instant Video requires the HAL daemon to be running. As it is deprecated, it is not likely to be installed on newer systems. Checking to see if hal is installed is easy, simply run the following command:
$ pacman -Qi hal hal-info
Once you have confirmed that hal is installed, start the daemon.
# /etc/rc.d/hal start
# systemctl start hal.service
You may also wish to enable the daemon at boot, either by adding hal to your DAEMONS array in /etc/rc.conf (if using sysvinit), or by running systemctl enable hal.service as root (if running systemd).
