Description of problem:
although NetworkManager is started,
I get next error when starting nm-applet (see actual results).
Didn't change any /etc/dbus setting or something.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install nm-applet
2. run it
** (nm-applet:3285): WARNING **: <WARN> applet_dbus_manager_start_service(): Could not acquire the NetworkManagerUserSettings service.
Message: 'Connection ":1.41" is not allowed to own the service "org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerUserSettings" due to security policies in the configuration file'
(nm-applet:3285): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_unref: assertion `G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed
anyone looking at this?
need more info?
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Removed the configuration,
then it's working again...
This sometimes crops up when you upgrade NM and dbus doesn't notice the change
in conf files correctly. It takes a 'killall -HUP dbus-daemon' to fix (which
causes dbus to re-read the config files) and is a dbus issue really. Moving to
can sometimes be triggered with a 'make install' from the NM source tree too.
Maybe a race condition in the inotify code that doesn't notice when the file is
completely written and reads it in too early, failing validation or something?
Well it happened when I moved from Fedora 8 to Fedora 9 Beta,
so probably due to the NM update, as you mention...
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '9'.
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 9'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 9 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 to the applicable version. 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.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 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.
