Description Matthias Clasen 2008-09-16 18:54:44 EDT
...with the consequence that I can't add a 'login screen ready' sound.

Here is why:

I: caps.c: Limited capabilities successfully to CAP_SYS_NICE.
I: caps.c: Dropping root priviliges.
I: caps.c: Limited capabilities successfully to CAP_SYS_NICE.
N: main.c: Called SUID root and real-time/high-priority scheduling was requested in the configuration. However, we lack the necessary priviliges:
N: main.c: We are not in group 'pulse-rt' and PolicyKit refuse to grant us priviliges. Dropping SUID again.
N: main.c: For enabling real-time scheduling please acquire the appropriate PolicyKit priviliges, or become a member of 'pulse-rt', or increase the RLIMIT_NICE/RLIMIT_RTPRIO resource limits for this user.
W: main.c: High-priority scheduling enabled in configuration but not allowed by policy.
W: core-util.c: setpriority(): Permission denied
E: core-util.c: Home directory /var/lib/gdm not ours.

/var/lib/gdm is owned by root - should that really be a fatal error condition ?

We store auth info there, that's why I make sure that we own that dir... Dunno. Does it really make sense that that dir is owned by root?
Comment 2 Lennart Poettering 2008-09-22 18:06:14 EDT
I am reassigning this now to GDM, since I'd find it way more natural if /var/lib/gdm was owned by gdm:gdm instead of root:gdm. 

Jon, what was the reason for making it owned by root?

I've fixed this in rawhide now.

This is actually a duplicate of bug #439019, which was reported 11 months ago against F8. Are there any plans to fix this in F8 and F9?
