Re: [libvirt] [PATCH] daemon: Preface polkit error output with 'polkit:'

There's been a few bugs about an expected error from polkit:


The error is:

Authorization requires authentication but no agent is available.

The error means that polkit needs a password, but there is no polkit
agent registered in your session. Polkit agents are the bit of UI that
pop up and actually ask for your password.

Preface the error with the string 'polkit:' so folks can hopefully
make more sense of it.

This line fails syntax-check:

It seems a bit unreasonable here, but you need to put the translation macro there.

      } else {
-        virReportError(VIR_ERR_AUTH_FAILED, "%s",
-                       pkout && *pkout ? pkout : _("authentication failed"));
+        virReportError(VIR_ERR_AUTH_FAILED, "%s", _("authentication failed"));


The change makes sense to me and I've also hit the error and had to look where it comes from.

ACK once you make it pass syntax-check.
