The standard distribution worked fine on my AA1, but having performed a yast update user mounting of removable media is broken:
I have tried relaxing permissions in /usr/share/PolicyKit/policy/org.freedesktop.hal.storage.policy to no avail.
Finally I tried ‘polkit-auth’ as an unprivileged user which gives:
[WARN 4101] Error loading policy files from /usr/share/PolicyKit/policy: Out of memory parsing /usr/share/PolicyKit/policy/org.freedesktop.hal.storage.policy [WARN 4101] polkit-policy-cache.c:368:polkit_policy_cache_foreach(): policy_cache != NULL Not built with -rdynamic so unable to print a backtrace
If I temporarily remove this policy, polkit-auth runs with problem.
This suggests to me either a syntax error in the policy file (I can’t see one) or a bug in polkit or expat. Any ideas?
