Description Colin Walters 2004-10-06 14:16:25 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)
Gecko/20040930 Epiphany/1.4.0

Description of problem:
Currently hal-device-manager is a symlink to
/usr/share/hal/device-manager/hal-device-manager, which won't work if
/usr/share is noexec, nor will it work in SELinux strict policy.

The easiest solution is to add a bit of code to do
sys.path.append('/usr/share/hal/device-manager') inside the binary,
generated by configure.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
