Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:53:58 EST
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: every login
Steps to Reproduce:
1. turn on computer and log in.
Error message: console-kit-daemon dead but pid file exists
Additional info: This is reported in the Server Configuration (services). Have
searched google and come up with nothing. Updated to kernel-devel.x86_64
Started and stopped the service. No positive results.
Are you running SELinux in enforcing mode? If so, please try with permissive
mode and see if you can reproduce. Thanks.
Thanks for the reply. SELinux is disabled. Not sure if this is related, but am
getting a error upon login. I don't have it verbatim right now, but it says
something like: Marc.dmrcs being ignored. Permissions should be set to 644. No
other users are allowed to write to this file (or directory).
Not sre if this has anything to do with it. I logged in as root and changed
ownership to Marc. Logged out and logged in as Marc. Then chmod to 644. No
If this is not related, please discard and I'll address it separately.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 7 is nearing the end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 7. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '7'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 7's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 7 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists.
Please read the Release Notes for the newest Fedora distribution to make sure it will meet your needs:
The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Fedora 7 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on June 13, 2008.
Fedora 7 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not
receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we
are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version
of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
