slackware 13.1 all you need to do is give the user daemon for some devices but plugdev is you problem. 13.1 will mount that know problem. and xfce4 will mount it and put a icon on the desk top.
plug it in open a terminal su root and type fdisk -l see your drive.
I heard i need to do some tinkering with policies or something.
start xfce4 as root it should mount it. did you do a full install with kde you should. but you do not have to use kde there is some stuff that helps you out.
a full install is recomended.
"A security policy in place prevents this sender ..." error
With Slackware 12.0 and onwards, when you are running X Window, and are greeted by the following message when you insert a CD, DVD, or USB stick into the computer:
A security policy in place prevents this sender from sending this message to this recipient, see message bus configuration file (rejected message had interface “org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume” member “Mount” error name ”(unset)” destination “org.freedesktop.Hal”)
this means that you need to add your user account to the plugdev group.
The command to add your account (for example account called “alien”) to the group plugdev is:
gpasswd -a alien plugdev
You need to logout and login again in order for this change to have effect.
If you start your computer in runlevel 3 (non-graphical boot) and run “groups” you will notice that your account seems to be part of the plugdev group already. This is true in a sense: Slackware adds your account to this group and several others like cdrom, floppy dynamically for the duration of your login session. Unfortunately the DBUS/HAL daemons do not use Linux system calls to check your group membership. Instead, they rely on what is written in the /etc/group file.
This HAL related issue is actually explained in the CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT file (here is a link to the Slackware 13.1 version of CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT
. Highly recommened reading material, that file!
thank Alien Bob for his wonderful slack-book
