|Subject:||configuring gnome with hal|

To begin, I run FreeBSD-current.
I *think* that the hal, dbus, and policykit ports are the province of this list, am I right? I got referred here, for my problem, which is that I can't find any concrete example of how to configure this. I have read the tutorial on Hal and dbus, but I can find nothing at all to read on PolicyKit, excepting some things that are very very high level, with no conctrete examples of how to actually use it.
What I'm looking for is any app whatasover that uses policykit, then any example at all which shows how to make that app work with hal, dbus, and policykit.
Beyond that, I know that hal is supposed to ease things like automounting of CDs and DVDs, so i put in a DVD, and nothing happened, excepting I got this error message:
Cannot mount volume Error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.AccessDenied. Details: 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 don't even know for sure what file is supposed to be the configuration file. Does anyone know any details about using these things on FreeBSD?
Please limit lines to about 72 characters. I get tired of re-formatting mail composed on broken MUAs Almost all recent ones are broken in that they don't really send plain-text, but assume that the reader's MUA will deal with it. Mine does, but, when I reply, Emacs assumes that 'text-plain' really means 'text-plain'.
First order answer is to look at the halfaq at: http://www.freebsd.org//gnome/docs/halfaq.html
It has information on what files to edit and how to edit them that will most likely resolve your problem.
