Description Timo Meinen 2007-05-24 21:43:58 UTC
I want to let my usbsticks automounted, so I installed hald and gnome-volume-manager. When I attach a usbstick to my usb-port a message window appears declaring: "Cannot mount volume".

So, I found a tipp in a mailinglist:

editing /etc/dbus-1/system.d/hal.conf :

I changed <policy group="plugdev"> to <policy group="444"> (444 is the gid of plugdev-group). After restarting hald everything works fine.

Is this a bug?


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert a mountable device

gnome-base/gnome-volume-manager: 2.15.0-r1

Do you have an ldap or NIS server? do you use nscd? did you edit /etc/ns* files?

NO, I don't have a NIS and I don't have a LDAP server and I didn't edited any ns* files.

Just normal. ;-)

Seems like a dbus problem looking up the group.

Please provide the output of "id" as run as your user.

need info requested previously by me. Additionally emerge --info. Also, the version of HAL used it no longer supported since it's been superseded. Also, need dbus version.
