USB stick - hal-storage-removable-mount refused


Hello.

I am using Open SUSE 10.2 64 bit (Linux 2.6.18.8-0.3-default #1 SMP Tue Apr 17 08:42:35 UTC 2007 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux). Recently (perhaps after performing online update?) I run into problem: the USB stick refuses to mount. For example, konqueror sees it as a 2.1 Gb removable storage medium, but any attempts to mount (either authomatically, or via KDE-konqueror, or issueing the prompt $mount /media/disk) result in the error:

kded: ERROR: mount failed for /org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/volume_uuid_241A_14E4: org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.PermissionDeniedByPolicy - hal-storage-removable-mount refused uid 0

kded: ERROR: mounting /org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/volume_uuid_241A_14E4 returned hal-storage-removable-mount refused uid 0

What could be the matter?

Because there are no other answers to your post, forgive me if I come up with three somewhat amateurish suggestions.

1) You may wish to try to unmount the USB first. There could possibly be some confusion somewhere. (This is the most unlikely solution.)

2) Make sure (and I imagine you did) that you are root user (via sudo or su) when you are doing this stuff.

3) Are you mounting the right device name? Why not try "sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sba1 /mnt"? This is a fairly direct way to accomplish a mount.

Good luck!
