pkcon failure in non-gui mode
Last modified: 2013-03-13 01:43:28 EDT
Description of problem:
pkcon fails when run in a different VT or run level 3 showing that dbus is not
started which is a bogus error message since dbus is running just fine.
Fixed in 18bff1599f9a22721d50b2e022044fce25a3cece, thanks.
This isn't quite fixed yet - the error message is better, but we still need to
make it actually work from a VT.
Probably using this:
instead of our current method of getting auth.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
I'm noticing this as a bug too... I can't find a way to test run this and see it
actually succeeds. Does this even work at all? Does PackageKit-cron work
properly by not using a VT ?
Yup, 0.2.4 is fixed and uses polkit-auth.
