Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 239355
Dbus requires account to be present in local /etc/passwd
Last modified: 2013-10-15 15:25:29 EDT
Description of problem:
When user accounts are in ldap and/or krb5, dbus/hal doesn't work, and
subsequently you need root access to access cd-roms, usb sticks and other
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login as user with nss data in ldap, auth info in ldap or krb5
2. lshal command produces
error: dbus_bus_get: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a
reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the
message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the
network connection was broken.
3a. Login as a local user.
3b. Type "getent passwd $USERNAME" >> /etc/passwd and add corresponding entry to
/etc/shadow as well (i.e. copy the user data from ldap to local /etc/passwd).
4. Now lshal command produces the expected result, and attaching a removable
device shows up on the gnome desktop etc.
