Re: Bug#377689: Cannot mount usb key (and I read the archives)

This is because dbus checks the groups of the user as is provided
adminstrative database (/etc/groups if you use normal files), not
the groups a
user has in the session that sends the request. So what your trying
unfortunately doesn't work this way for hal callouts.
I do not understand, because Gnome manages to do it.
And it should at least be noted somewhere in a README, maybe in dbus
or else, that /etc/security/group.conf is not supported by dbus. If I
understand correctly, this is because dbus is a system-wide daemon
and has no access to "the user in the session" (due to its
asynchronous nature, it is not inheriting anything from the process
that issues the request), so I concede that it would be a bit
difficult (read "non-natural") to have this setup working. But I'd
really would like this to be noted in either dbus, hal, or wherever
the plugdev requirement is noted.
Thanks for finding the culprit anyway.
