Description Nalin Dahyabhai 2006-06-29 18:06:52 UTC
Running oddjobd 0.26 on Raw Hide currently causes massive numbers of SELinux
policy denials to be logged.  The D-BUS maintainer tells me that it's because
oddjobd subscribes to all messages using dbus_bus_add_match(""), though it has
no need to do so as unicast messages are always routed properly, and this is
what's triggering the denials.

I need to double-check that removing this call doesn't break anything on FE3/4/5
(which contain older versions of D-BUS which may or may not have required this
to be done) before making this fix for the upstream release.

Comment 1 Nalin Dahyabhai 2006-07-20 20:12:58 UTC
Fixed in oddjob 0.27.  There are no ill effects from removing the above
add_match call, at least as far back as D-BUS 0.22.  The oddjob 0.27 release
also fixes a compilation failure against D-Bus 0.90.
