Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 462327
System services not found
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:57:07 EST
Description of problem:
The org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit.service and org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerSystemSettings.service files exist, but apps complain that the respective services were not provided by any .service file. Haven't looked into any other services, but I'm guessing the other system services aren't started either.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run nm-connection-editor in a terminal windows
error message about org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerSystemSettings not being provided by any .service file
no such error message
SELinux is in permissive mode. messagebus service is running.
If I look at the relevant .service file and start the particular service using sudo manually in a konsole, the service works after that.
Rawhide is running inside VirtualBox OSE 2.0.2.
I'm not familiar with this package. What are the consequences of these error messages? Are they just annoying messages or are other parts of Fedora broken as a result?

For apps which use consolekit (apparently to get permissions to play a sound) to beep, they don't beep - instead they pause and complain to /var/log/messages.
For nm-connection-editor (which configures NetworkManager connections), my only network connection doesn't show up so I can't configure it. NetworkManager in general seems to be broken, though I don't know if that is caused by this bug.
I suspect that this is causing other weirdnesses but I don't know for sure.
I'm sorry - it's my fault, I unwittingly messed up some permissions again.
