permission denied by policy

how can i change permissions? i want to have access as i had at previous suse 11. policykit is responsible for this?

What permissions are you talking about? File permissions?

What DE are you using? KDE 3.5? KDE4? Gnome? XFCE? None?

What OS?

well i have installed Linux i686 - kde 4.1.3. .
In the previous installed system suse 11.1 but not the final i had access to hard disks. i was able to see windows partitions and read and copy whatever have inside.And of course i had access to suse partitions as user. i take this message

"An error occurred while accessing "volume (ext3), the system responded: org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.PermissionDeniedPyPolicy:org. auth_admin_keep_always (action,result)

this happens also for fixed disks.

Is there a solution to this? Got the same problem.


still waiting for an answer…:frowning:

go Yast > Security > Local Security and click through next next next
until you come to the page with Miscellaneous Settings, and a flip
box with File Permissions choices of “Easy”, “Secure” and “Paranoid”…

read the help in that window and select “Easy” and then “Finish” as i
did…and have for years…and, have had no bogeyman steal my stuff…

or, maybe you have another problem…i really don’t quite understand
the question/problem as i’ve never seen it…i wonder if either of
you make it a practice to occasionally sign into KDE or GNOME as root??

Make sure you add the relevant user(s) to ‘disk’ group. (Its been widely reported around here).
