    USB HAL problem?


    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")
    I get this message whenever I put a USB device into the USB port. This didn't happen with Slack 10, I just had to manually mount it, now it auto-mounts via LUN and other things. (I am pretty sure it was LUN) Can anyone help me with this? And entirely unrelated to this, is there a site with just a list of CLI commands and what they do?
    Always Grateful,
    Stinkoman

    PS Geez I have a lot of problems figuring this out... I wish school had a Linux class I would SO take it!

    Check your /etc/group file to make sure you are a member of the following groups:

    audio, cdrom, floppy, plugdev, and video

    Edit the file if needed and once you are in all of them, issue the following command:

    Code:
    /etc/rc.d/rc.messagebus reload
    I think that should get you going once you log back in.

    Edit: also, look on the Slack CDs for the CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT document because I think it talks about this there.

    Ok, here's another somewhat related thread that might offer additional tips:

    That didn't help. I still can't do anything and am still getting:

    Try rebooting to see if that helps.

    Ok, I found this wiki with basically the same info, but with an additional command that I missed above.

    Hope it helps.

    Sorry it's not working.

    I'm out of ideas and not running a Slack box at the moment, so I'm unable to run any local tests on it. Maybe someone that has been through this and is currently running Slack will respond.

    While waiting for other ideas about a fix for this issue, here's another option you could try if you want:

    Slackware Linux Articles: Using USB memory sticks with Slackware Linux

    I've never used this method so can't speak for how well it does or does not work.
