Package: tails-installer
Version: 4.4.6+dfsg-1~bpo8+1
Followup-For: Bug #814190

Ah, and it actually seems like providing the password on the
commandline does *not* work either:

Tails installation failed!
udisks-error-quark: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.UDisks2.Error.NotAuthorizedCanObtain: Not authorized to perform operation (4)

The console says:

==== AUTHENTICATING FOR org.freedesktop.policykit.exec ===
Authentication is needed to run `/usr/bin/syslinux' as the super user
Authenticating as: anarcat,,, (anarcat)

On the "Password" prompt, I typed in my password (i think
correctly). Using gksudo does seem to work somewhat better (although
the first attempt failed silently).
