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?
well i have installed Linux 220.127.116.11-4-default 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.
freedesktop.Hal.storage.mount-removable 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…
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).
