Policykit wants privileges to another HDD partition

Probably asked and answered many times, but I haven’t found it.

This started after the update to 15.3 latest kernel last week(system is now 15.4 and it carried over?)

This only happens after boot completion on /dev/sdc asking to grant privileges to mount /dev/sdb4

Is the policy from /dev/sdb4, or is it in /dev/sdc somewhere?
I have been in the /etc/polkit scripts on /dev/sdc2. but it is all a foreign language to me.

How do I stop it. Yes, just a matter of CANCEL, but should not be necessary.

Is this possibly the same problem as discussed in https://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php/571352-Root-password-is-requested-every-time-system-boots

Yes it seems so. What I don’t understand is how fresh install(forgot to mention that) would carry it over.

BTW, both of ‘problem’ the HDD’s are SATA drives connected like the book says SATA ports should be connected with devices.

It doesn’t happen when I boot /dev/sda that is a PATA drive on a PCI card.

I’ll look into the other thread.

Your solution in the other post worked AGAIN! Thanks.
Odd thing is, neither of the the other drives had any thing under the ‘checked’ listings, Just the top boxes. Basically a blank screen.

I find it perplexing, especially as the drive in question has a fresh install.

Actions of device notifier depend on configuration. You may want to check both devices and general options. I moved the file and started from scratch:

Maybe a .sig update would help. At least it wouldn’t be advertising a no longer supported release. :stuck_out_tongue:
