Description secondary 2014-07-28 06:34:40 UTC
Description of problem:

See description and solution at http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/112224/allow-rygel-to-talk-to-networkmanager-over-dbus.

To sum up, if rygel is run as a system user under networkmanager < it fails to bind to any network interfaces and thus remains inaccessible.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rygel 0.20.3-1.fc20

How reproducible:
Always. Affects multiple people.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create rygel system user and group
2. Create rygel systemd service
3. Configure rygel (interface= makes no difference)
4. Start rygel
5. Can't access rygel

Actual results:
Rygel only binds to, so is remotely inaccessible.

Expected results:
Rygel binds to all or specified interfaces.

nm > removes at_console dbus policy, thus allowing rygel to connect as a system user.

I'm not sure what you're asking me to do here? What is your proposed fix?

Comment 3 secondary 2014-07-28 16:09:24 UTC
Upgrade networkmanager to (a version without at_console) in F20.

If possible the networkmanager maintainers should be notified.

That might be a major change that could affect other packages, ultimately though it's a decision that needs to be made by the NM maintainers

Comment 5 secondary 2014-12-29 22:25:20 UTC
Obviously with f21 this can now be closed.
