How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Comment 1 Nate Straz 2008-10-12 09:42:39 EDT
The last version of dbus I had installed was 1.0.0-7.el5.

After removing the eavesdrop="true" attribute I can again log into X.
Comment 3 David Zeuthen 2008-10-13 20:37:25 EDT
Not sure why the config file wasn't updated; the upstream patch


changed it. Maybe we're using that horribly broken %config(noreplace) directive. If so, we need to fix that ASAP. Dan, you did the rebase, any ideas?
Comment 4 Nate Straz 2008-10-13 21:18:59 EDT
Capturing conversation I had with David on IRC.  The long and short of it, this appears to be an upgrade issue where I ended up with a new i386 version of dbus in the package rpmdb, but an old x86_64 dbus package on disk.

davidz>	hello
refried>	I just saw your comment
refried>	the config file was updated
refried>	dbus-daemon failed to parse it because of that change
davidz>	but it works on the next login?
refried>	I'm not sure what you mean
refried>	I couldn't log into X to fix it
davidz>	that's odd
refried>	I did the edit from the console
davidz>	I need to talk to dcbw; maybe we somehow botched the rebase
davidz>	but I'm pretty sure it worked for him
davidz>	it seems odd it would only update the config file, not the /bin/dbus-daemon binary
davidz>	is rpm -V dbus saying the right thing?
refried>	[nstraz@tin ~]$ rpm -q dbus
refried>	dbus-1.1.2-11.el5
refried>	[nstraz@tin ~]$ dbus-daemon --version
refried>	D-Bus Message Bus Daemon 1.0.0
refried>	[nstraz@tin ~]$ rpm -V dbus
refried>	S.5....T  c /etc/dbus-1/session.conf
refried>	S.?.....    /lib/dbus-1/dbus-daemon-launch-helper
refried>	hrm, I didn't think to look to see if dbus-daemon didn't return the right version
davidz>	there's something very wrong going on
davidz>	can you check the md5 of /bin/dbus-daemon against that in the rpm?
refried>	[root@tin log]# md5sum /bin/dbus-daemon
refried>	38fa3678753e95f99d43a783c90d7f36  /bin/dbus-daemon
refried>	I don't remember how to get sums out of rpmquery
davidz>	maybe they're in brew.. let me check
refried>	rpm -V doesn't complain so I'll bet it's the same
davidz>	can you add this to the bug report?
davidz>	the different version numbers are... scary.. to say the least
refried>	ok
refried>	I figured I'd try to contact you since bugzilla is so slow today
davidz>	what arch are you on?
davidz>	https://brewweb.devel.redhat.com/buildinfo?buildID=76049
refried>	x86_64

davidz>	so..
davidz>	something is horribly wrong
davidz>	horribly, horribly wrogon
davidz>	wrong even
refried>	that doesn't make any sense
davidz>	if I were to guess.. this looks like a nasty bug with rpm
davidz>	but that's only a guess
refried>	[root@tin log]# rpm -q --qf "%{N}-%{V}-%{R}.%{ARCH}\n" dbus
refried>	dbus-1.1.2-11.el5.i386
davidz>	oh
davidz>	wow
davidz>	I thought you were on x86_64?
refried>	I am
davidz>	what does file /bin/dbus-daemon say?
davidz>	also, what does rpm -q dbus.x86_64 say?
refried>	[root@tin log]# file /bin/dbus-daemon
refried>	/bin/dbus-daemon: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, AMD x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.6.9, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.9, stripped

davidz>	anyway
davidz>	something is horribly busted with yum/rpm/multilib here
refried>	very very strange
davidz>	ok, let me suggest to paste this entire conversation into the bug
davidz>	and probably avoid touching the system
refried>	okay, no more workstation upgrades for me
davidz>	since it may be needed to track this down
davidz>	I'm not sure how you ended up with an i386 dbus... you should be having an x86_64 one
davidz>	and the fact that the MD5 sums doesn't match... and you have the wrong binary (according to --version) output
davidz>	would probably be good to reassign this to the yum or rpm component
davidz>	am pretty sure it's a bug there...
