Fixed: Automounted DVDs on openSUSE 11.4
I had an issue with automounted DVDs on openSUSE 11.4 not appearing in Gnome desktop.

The issue is fixed in
udisks 1.0.3 2 however openSUSE 11.4 stopped updating

I'll put it up for download here (unless I find time to put it somewhere more official like the openSUSE build server).
To allow the DVD to be mounted without requiring root authentication I had to get handy with polkit.

/var/lib/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/ (you may have to create the
