Slackware 13.1 automount hal error for non root users


Hi,

I just installed slackware 13.1. And I get the following error with a normal user when I connect my memory stick:

Failed to mount "Crucial".
Rejected send message, 1 matched rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.211" (uid=1000 pid=2275 comm="exo-mount) interface="org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume" member="Mount" error name="(unset)" requested_reply=0 destination="org.freedesktop.Hal" (uid=0 pid=1723 comm="/usr/sbin/hald)).

When run the command groups the user is member of the following groups:
users floppy audio video cdrom plugdev power scanner

What else I need to change so the USB works?

Hi,

Welcome to LQ!

Do you have a filesystem on the stick?

What do you see in 'dmesg' and other '/var/log' entries.

Does the stick mount by 'root'?

You could possibly use USB Flash Memory HOWTO to gain some understanding.

Just a few links to aid you to gaining some understanding;

SlackwareŽ Essentials
SlackwareŽ Basics
Linux Documentation Project
Rute Tutorial & Exposition
Linux Command Guide
Utimate Linux Newbie Guide

Bash Beginners Guide

Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide
Linux Home Networking


The above links and others can be found at 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!

Hi,

One other thought would be sure to have 'acpi' & 'apic' setup for the system. Also how do you have the BIOS setup for USB, ahci? Look at this wiki, AHCI - ArchWiki.
