Description Rahul Sundaram 2008-04-06 15:02:55 UTC
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.

Comment 2 Robin Norwood 2008-04-10 15:55:42 UTC
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.

Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 08:58:29 UTC
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 ?

Comment 5 Richard Hughes 2008-08-18 09:04:35 UTC
Yup, 0.2.4 is fixed and uses polkit-auth.
