I do not yet see the difference betwenn the two system.
Any idea where these policies could be defined if not in
The permission is denied by PolicyKit, not by the dbus-1 access layer.
/usr/share/PolicyKit/policy/ is the place to look at,
and you can modify it per user if you want.
In betwenn I reinstalled the polkit-default-privs package
on the system where I have problems just as a try, even if I did not modify
the files contained in the package (/etc/polkit-default-
privs.localprivs.restrictive, and privs.standard). Now when I try to hibernate
the system it still does not work and polkit-auth still returns no output but
the error message has changed:
$ powersave -U
org.freedesktop.hal.power-management.hibernate auth_admin_keep_always <--
Next I looked in
there is this entry:
<description>Hibernate the system</description>
<message>System policy prevents hibernating the system</message>
This entry however is identicylly on both system: On the system where I can
say powersave -U (start hibernate) and on the system where I get the Error
In /usr/share/PolicyKit/policy/org.freedesktop.hal.storage.policy there is
also an entry:
<description>Mount file systems from removable drives.</description>
<message>System policy prevents mounting removable media</message>
But when I try to access a USB stick via dolphin it tells me:
auth_admin_keep_always <-(action,result) and the usb stick is not displayed in
dolphin. And again on both systems the org.freedesktop.hal.storage.policy file
is identical on both systems.
I have really no idea whats going on. The system where policykit has problems
is a system with NIS running autofs running and without local (non-system)
users. Could this cause any trouble (it did not however from suse8* to
suse11.0, with generally identical installation) ?
