So, it seems that on my ubuntu
12.04 11.04 I'm affected by Bug #971876.
Luckily enough, the bug is marked as "fix released" and a last comment by the Launchpad Janitor says that "This bug was fixed in the package udisks - 1.0.4-5ubuntu2".
How do I install the version 1.0.4-5ubuntu2 in order to solve the problem? I have tried heading to Ubuntu Packages Search, then downloading the .deb and trying to install it manually. Unfortunately I have an unmet dependency on the version of libc6.
What is the cleanest way to install it on my
12.04 11.04? Is this what a backport would be for? How can I find it or make it?
I am a bit afraid of manually overriding the version of libc6 and installing a newer one, I wouldn't want to end up breaking the system.
UPDATE: my mistake: the computer I am talking about is not running 12.04 but 11.04.
