did you mount the disk with the live cd? or just try to access it from KDE desktop? If from desktop you probably have to mount it.

mkdir /path/to/mount
mount -o loop /dev/hdx /path/to/mount

that works for me nearly every time i need to mount a drive. i used that to mount my NTFS file system to copy the files over before I formatted.

Quick & Dirty solution:

in /etc/PolicyKit/PolicyKit.conf insert into section <config> permission for all users to mount all disks
Code:
<match action="org.freedesktop.hal.storage.*">
    <return result="yes"/>
</match>

Posilo, what was your solution? I followed rev918's solution and it works. Has anyone found a "proper" fix for this or the reason for it happening?

Oh, sorry for being so secretive: I also followed rev918's suggestion and it worked. As an absolute beginner with Linux I was just unsure how to deal with the command lines... but figured it out myself.

(By the way, if you want to hear something funny(?!), after doing that, I managed to format the whole HD of my laptop with GParted while all I meant to do was resize the newly created partitions and leave WinXP as a secondary option... But that's another story, and now I have just Xubuntu and I'm happy with it. )

Exclamation had this prb too

I am still trying to find a distro I want to commit to. Some of the minimal things I like a distro to do are:
1. Access my NTFS partition
2. Play MP3's
3. Watch vids
4. View Graphics
5. Open Word and Excel docs
6. Connect to wireless Internet
7. Use Firefox to do internet stuff
8. (Ideally) run small Win32 apps in Wine

I was just trying out the latest Mandriva 2010.2 KDE live CD and it wouldn't let me access my HDD in my HP 2530p ... got the the org.freedesktop.hal.device.PermissionDeniedByPolicy org.freedesktop.hal.storage.mount-fixed issue.

So it failed to get past item number one.

Yeah I've done the command-line thing in the past, but most modern distros can just mount the partition when I click on its link in the file browser, so I viewed this as an error:
Attached Thumbnails

didnt hijack

Didn't hijack the thread ... same error message "org.freedesktop.hal.storage.mount-fixed auth_admin_keep_always "


I just put in a pic... and some background info, but I didn't know if it might be relevant.


Oh and the latest Linux mint refuses to mount the partition also, but that's a different forum...
