With the image

Build information:
1.4 - 20150421

live-build: 3.0.5+really+is+2.0.12-0.tails1
live-boot: 4.0.2-1
live-config: 4.0.4-1

I could not configure the Persistent Volume because of lack of administration password. Is this behaviour expected?

This does not happen with Tails 1.3.2 I think...

Update polkit rules wrt. the porting of t-p-s to udisks2.

Will-fix: #9270

Added by intrigeri about 3 years ago

Really allow the t-p-s user to modify system devices without requiring authentication.

Without this, the operator of the current session (that is, the amnesia user)
is asked to authenticate: polkit somewhat considers that this person controls
the client, even if run as a different user, which kinda makes sense.

Will-fix: #9270
