    Default HAL does not mount removables anymore

    I had some nasty remarks about what (not only) I see as deficiences of HAL.

    And now HAL strikes back!

    openSUSE 10.3 and KDE 3.5 (two systems doing the same).

    Inserting a removable (CD, DVD, USB stick) lets pop-up the window with "what do you want to do with it". Choosing "open in a window" opens a Konqueror window (nothing in it) and an error window with the text:
    hal-storage-mount-removable no <-- (action, result)
    Not a very illuminating error message (like old and dark Unix days )

    The device is not mounted. Mounting from the CLI (as root) works fine.

    This behaviour is rather recent, possibly introduced by some update. Anybody having the same? Anybody having some solution?

    No issue here with openSUSE 11.0 and KDE3.5.10 or KDE4.2.4. Must be specific to your 10.3 update. A PolicyKit issue?

    Using grep hal /var/log/zypper.log I think the following might be of interest:
    Code:

    There seem to be installed four hal patches if I interprete this correct. After a month holiday I updated, so it is understandable that there were more then one patch.

    Now how do I get more info about those four patches, or more simply, how do I revert them (preferable starting with the most recent, testing after each removal).

    Default Re: HAL does not mount removables anymore

    Hm, did a Google on patch-hal-6098. Found The XML. And this contains:
    The dbus package used a too permissive configuration. Therefore intended access control for some services was not applied (CVE-2008-4311). The new configuration denies access by default. Some dbus services may break due to this setting and need an updated configuration as well.
    Could be an explanation, but why does nobody else report this?

    Search software management for HAL


    See the versions tab and the radio buttons
    go back one - you may have to do the same for hal-palm too to keep them in sync
    If one roll back doesn't do it, go back again.

    Thanks caf4926.

    There are four in thelist, the original OSS one and three updates. When I choose one update backwards, the dependancy check gives me:
    Code:
    #### YaST2 conflicts list - generated 2009-06-29 14:04:47 ####
    
    Dit zou atom:hal-0.5.9_git20070831-13.7.i586 ongeldig maken.
        er is niet voldaan aan de vereisten voor atom:hal-0.5.9_git20070831-13.7.i586
        === atom:hal-0.5.9_git20070831-13.7.i586 ===
            hal-0.5.9_git20070831-13.7.i586 levert hal == 0.5.9_git20070831-13.7, maar is aangemerkt voor de�nstallatie.
            hal-0.5.9_git20070831-13.7.i586[openSUSE-10.3-Updates] levert hal == 0.5.9_git20070831-13.7, maar een andere versie van pakket is al ge�nstalleerd.
            Aan de vereiste hal >= 0.5.9_git20070831-13.7 voor atom:hal-0.5.9_git20070831-13.7.i586 kan niet worden voldaan
            atom:hal-0.5.9_git20070831-13.7.i586 zal opnieuw worden ge�valueerd voor installatie door hal-0.5.9_git20070831-13.5.i586[openSUSE-10.3-Updates] (hal == 0.5.9_git20070831-13.5)
        (null)
        Conflictoplossing:
            ( ) hal verwijderen
    
    #### YaST2 conflicts list END ###
    which is not in english, but I think you get the message. There is no Ignore button here, only Try again and Annull.

    I'm having difficulty deciphering that even with Google translate. There must be a way to roll back. Really, you are in the best position to see how to resolve the conflict.
    I can't even guarantee that will resolve the issue.

    I'm on opensuse 10.3 also, but have no issues with that patch applied :-?

    Better open a bug report to manage this more accurately.

    Great. Someone else with 10.3
    Yes a bug report might be a good idea. Hang on with the roll back if you like.
