Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2006-11-06 21:01:26 UTC
dbus is also used to communicate and request things from the daemon.  You can
disable this by setting dbus_listener = no in /etc/yum/yum-updatesd.conf.  To
make it a little bit more clear, I'll put the default setting in the file and a
comment accordingly.
