    Default Suse 11.1. dvd drive broken PermissionDeniedByPolicy

    Hi,
    Every time I load a DVD, either a movie or a data DVD I have burned myself (so no DRM), Dolphin V1.1 on KDE3 4.1.3 on Suse 11.1, 64 bit always gives me the same error:
    An error occurred while accessing 'dvd_label', the system responded:
    org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.PermissionDeniedByPolicy:
    org.freedesktop.hal.storage.mount-removable
    auth_admin_keep_always <-- (action, result).

    I can't even look at my old data backup DVDs. What' the scoop?

    I have to manually mount it as root:
    root@godzilla2:/etc# mount /dev/dvd /media/dvd

    Then, I can look at it.

    If I hit the eject button on the drive, I get 3 popup error windows:
    1) klo_media_mounthelper. Unfortunately, the device system:/media/sr1 (/dev/sr1) named '[dvd_volume_label]' and currently mounted on /media/dvd could not be unmounted. Unmounting failed die to the following error;
    Cannot open /media/.hal-mtab

    2)Error - artsmessage
    Sound server fatal error
    Can't create mcop directory.

    3)kde crash handler
    Tha application KNotify (knotify) crashed and caused a signal 11 (SIGSEGV). Bla, bla, bla.

    Here's the backtrace info:

    Try adding yourself to the cdrom group.

    Do you have the latest version of hal?

    rpm -qi hal

    Should output 0.5.12-39.1. The latest version should be available via the opensuse updater.

    Hi,
    I added myself to the cdrom group. Same problem. The latest hal shown by yast2 is 0.5.12-10.12.1. It shows nothing else available. Here's my version of hal.

    godzilla2:/tera # rpm -qi hal
    Name : hal Relocations: (not relocatable)
    Version : 0.5.12 Vendor: openSUSE
    Release : 10.12.1 Build Date: Tue 20 Jan 2009 09:03:52 AM CST
    Install Date: Fri 30 Jan 2009 12:32:47 PM CST Build Host: albeniz
    Group : System/Daemons Source RPM: hal-0.5.12-10.12.1.src.rpm
    Size : 1813252 License: GPL v2 or later; AFL
    Signature : RSA/8, Tue 20 Jan 2009 09:04:10 AM CST, Key ID b88b2fd43dbdc284


    Even after updating it, I get the same hal version/release. I added myself to the haldaemon group too.

    Puzzled,
    BrianP

    Try adding yourself to disk. If you check /dev/cdrom, /dev/dvd and /dev/dvdrw, you will see that they are all members of the disk group.

    Hi,
    I looked at my working Ubuntu fstab and it had 1 /dev/cdrom0 device in it. Suse didn't think I needed any. Suse apparently calls them "SR"s (whatever that is). By monkeying around with my fstab and adding these 2 lines, I slam a dvd in and it mounts. I hit the eject button on the drive or drive->right_click->eject from dolphin, and (within a few seconds) it pops out.

    /dev/sr0 /media/bluray udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8,ro 0 0
    /dev/sr1 /media/dvd udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8,ro 0 0

    godzilla2:/home/brianp/download # grep media /etc/mtab
    /dev/sr1 /media/dvd iso9660 ro,nosuid,nodev,utf8,user=brianp 0 0
    /dev/sr0 /media/bluray udf ro,nosuid,nodev,utf8,user=brianp 0 0

    I wonder why a fresh install of Suse 11.1 didn't find and install them. The Blu-Ray is a SATA device whereas the dvd is a dumb old 16x, IDE writer, a master on the PATA controller. Hmmm.

    Thanks for your help,

    The explanation has already been given in the forums but I don't have the link. As I said, you only need to go into YaST>Security and users and add the 'disk' group to each user and the problem is solved. Much quicker than making new entries in fstab.
