Description Sebastian Vahl 2007-05-02 18:14:49 EDT
Description of problem: If gdm is not installed, this error is shown during boot:
"Starting system message bus: unknown username "gdm" in message bus configuration

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): ConsoleKit-0.2.1-2.fc7

How reproducible: Use KDE-LiveCd or remove gdm and user "gdm".

Actual results: above error is shown

Expected results: dbus should not complain about this

Additional info: Removing the entry for gdm in
/etc/dbus-1/system.d/ConsoleKit.conf doesn't show the error.

Surely thats a dbus bug; it should not complain about unknown users in the policy.

Happen here also using XFCE.
Comment 4 Sebastian Vahl 2007-09-18 12:33:37 EDT
Is there a chance to fix this one for Fedora 8? 
Comment 5 David Zeuthen 2007-09-18 16:47:34 EDT
Should be fixed in 0.2.2 or later.
Comment 6 Sebastian Vahl 2007-09-18 21:15:57 EDT
Confirmed with ConsoleKit-0.2.3. Thanks!
