Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 422871
Last modified: 2007-12-22 00:05:02 EST
Description of problem:
There was an error starting the GNOME Settings Daemon.
The last error message was:
An SELinux policy prevents this sender from sending this message to this
recipient (rejected message had interface "org.freedesktop.DBus" member "Hello"
error name "(unset)" destination "org.freedesktop.DBus")
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Boot with SELinux in permissive mode. Start X with either gdm or startx. The
error shows when gnome-settings-daemon starts.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot with enforcing=0
2. login to gnome rl3 or rl5
3. see dialog box pasted in description above. Notice very large fonts vs.
Every time I login, the error is repeated
Normal fonts and no warning daemon crashed.
What's the SELinux avc message?
Which version of the selinux policies do you have?
Looks like a problem with DBus and/or SELinux policies. Does HAL, hcid or other
daemons trigger that problem?
The problem happened after the update for the X server. There was an adjustment
for elements for a daemon related to the hardware abstraction layer a short time
before te problem surfaced. I'll see if I can find the bug report for the daemon
problm which may have triggered this error tomorrow.
Closing bug ticket. selinux-policy-3.2.5-3.fc9 no longer shows error in logs.
The message in gnome is no longer present either.
