My kernel is linux3.3.1, my KDE version is 4.8.2, my
When I run KDE Partition Manager, it asks me to input password. After autority, I get the error message:
Code:
No usable devices could be found.
Make sure you have sufficient privileges to access block devices on your system.

The auto mount function of KDE also doesn't work. The Removable Devices in System Settings detects no attached devices.

zasdfgbnm,

Have you tried to manually mount the devices/partitions :?:

Did you try cfdisk :?:

Well, at least the devices/partitions are intact if you're able to mount them manually.

I'm not familiar with kde,or the KDE Partition Manager so I can't speak to them, but try starting it from the cl as root. Sometimes you'll get better error messages that way.

Also check your /home directory for any other owner or group other than yourself.

I'm sure files in my home are all belong to me, no other users.
I execute the partitionmanager in command line but I get the error code:
Code:
 $ sudo partitionmanager

zasdfgbnm,

It's looking for hal-lock that doesn't exist. You'll get the same error with
Code:
root@gentoo-gateway .ssh # which hal-lock
which: no hal-lock in (/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/opt/bin)

I found this:
Code:
grep -n hal-lock /usr/portage/sys-block/gparted/ChangeLog
221:  corrected hal-lock, and more. Closes bug #258053.
237:  -files/gparted-0.3.7-hal-lock.patch, -gparted-0.3.5.ebuild,
267:  +files/gparted-0.3.7-hal-lock.patch, +gparted-0.3.7-r1.ebuild:
274:  bump to 0.3.7. Bug fixes (crash for partition > 1To, implement hal-lock)

Both gparted and partitionmanager use block/parted-3
Code:
grep block/parted-3  $(equery w gparted)
   >=sys-block/parted-3"

grep block/parted-3  $(equery w partitionmanager)
   >=sys-block/parted-3


Unfortunately, I'm at a loss here :? Hopefully someone else here can advise on this.
