Great, no need to do bug filing. I spent this afternoon with an 
additional serious problem that concerns the udisks daemon. It makes 
locally building packages on a chroot cauldon partition (Mageia 2 beta 
1) very diffcult or impossible.

Doing urpmi on the chrooted system (with packages also to be fetched 
from the install DVD), the install fails with "Udisks daemon 
(udisks-daemon) is not running or not ready". I have seen several 
discussions mentioning rather similar problems, but I am not sure how 
these problems relate to each other.

To a certain degree, using rpm -i is a - rather clumsy - workaround, 
When I need to install several tens of packages with dependencies from 
both the DVD and remote repositories, things become very awkward. This 
might be related to bugzilla #4649, but I still need to explore 
(installing xrandr does not help).
