Original Kernel version: 4.4.0
New Kernel version: 4.1.3
I recently compiled a patched kernel. The details of the patch and installation procedure are here: https://wiki.litmus-rt.org/litmus/InstallationInstructions
It's a real-time patch for linux kernel 4.1.3. After patching, I installed the kernel on Xubuntu 14.04 with kernel 4.4.0. After installing the patched kernel, there seems to be an issue with the Policy Kit.
/var/log/syslog of a boot here: http://pastebin.com/DbLxMpW7
Trying to start polkit
Doesn't let me install softwares
Doesn't automatically mount disks without root permission
Asks for password for log out/shutdown
When I boot from the original Xubuntu kernel, all of these issues dissapear. Have I done anything wrong during kernel compilation? Was there some option in
make menuconfig that was wrongly set?
I don't suspect it's the problem arising from the patch, since, I downloaded the VM Image supplied here: http://www.litmus-rt.org/tutorial/vm-setup.html which had the patch already installed and there none of these issues present.
