Disk authentication required to start up???

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


On starting up (or rebooting, obviously) this machine it always
presents me with a box with the heading

	Authentication is required to mount WDC
	WD20EARX-00PASB0 (/dev/sda1)

(screenshot attached).

I'm running the latest versions of everything (F33 workstation, KDE
5.20.5) presented to me but this has been happening for a long time, I
don't even remember how many Fedora versions (I started at F15 I

It appears after the KDE login (I autostart KDE), but doesn't happen at
all if I simply log out of my KDE session and then log back in.

Normally I give it my password (not the supervisor password, though my
account is in the sudo-ers group) and carry on. To send this message I
have purposely *not* given it the password and haven't closed the
window, so it's still there but everything seems to function normally,
so it's even not true, the disk must be mounted (it's the only hard
drive mounted) so the authentication is *not* required. Just closing
the window seems to be fine, too.

Any idea what's being upset here?
