dbus-0.61 and dbus-x11-0.61 were OK.
Comment 3 John (J5) Palmieri 2007-01-11 11:15:35 EST
Please look in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc-common and tell me if DBUS_LAUNCH is
defined with the --exit-with-session flag.  Thanks.
Comment 4 Jacques Beigbeder 2007-01-11 14:47:13 EST
/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc-common ends with:
[ -x /usr/bin/dbus-launch -a -z "$DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS" ] &&
DBUS_LAUNCH="/usr/bin/dbus-launch --exit-with-session"

Comment 8 Robert F. Snider 2008-04-22 16:08:07 EDT
don't know what the dbus-demon is but this looks close to my problem:
with Fedora Core 7: logging out of KDE - just hangs - well, get blank screen
with cursor arrow and mouse control.  Cntrl-Alt-F1 gets the command line login
request and mouse arrow disappears.  I then login (e.g. root), must rm the X
window lock to get startx to work, then fine as effective runlevel 3, but says
5.  Reboot, everything is fine again as long as I don't logout of KDE.  GNOME -
no problem.
  DBUS-LAUNCH has exit flag as in Comment #3 above.
Comment 9 Bug Zapper 2008-05-06 13:20:03 EDT
This bug is open for a Fedora version that is no longer maintained and
will not be fixed by Fedora. Therefore we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen thus bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
