Re: can't mount external as non-root

You should read this.  Specifically the second bullet point, but the whole page is probably worth reading as well.

Re: can't mount external as non-root

After more research it look like it is systemd/logind issue. I just upgraded to grub2 and everything boots fine, so now I trying to make sure systemd is in use

Okay?  You think it is a logind issue.  But do you actually use something that should enable you to mount via pam?

Re: can't mount external as non-root

Ok got it solved. After adding systemd to grub My mount rights are back. One more question, do you recommend add systemd to the fallback image in grub as well.
Thanks

Re: can't mount external as non-root

Honestly, I am still not entirely sure what your original issue was...

But if you plan on using systemd from now on, just install systemd-sysvcompat and then remove the init= line from your bootloader.  See the systemd wiki page.
