Description Patrick C. F. Ernzer 2008-10-19 11:46:00 EDT
Created attachment 320804 [details]
output of the devices that show up in hal-device when the Palm is connected.

Description of problem:
seems access to Palm devices is broken again, at least on my fedora box (fresh install of F10 Beta, then yum update to latest rawhide) for my Palm Tungsten T5

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -q pilot-link libusb udev hal hal-info;uname -r

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. connect Palm
2. power on Palm
3. wait a while for device to settle
4. pilot-xfer -l
5. press hot-sync button
Actual results:
sits indefinitely at
   Listening for incoming connection on usb:...

Expected results:
connect and list my databases

Additional info:
a. if I do the same steps but step 4. as root it works, so we seem to have a permission problem. (as root does not have the port set via PILOTPORT I add '-p usb:')

b. $ env|grep PILOT

c. I have made no changes to any of pilot-link libusb udev hal hal-info (checked with rpm -V).

d. I have not enabled 60-libpisock.rules as I understand that PolicyKit makes it redundant.

e. org.freedesktop.hal.device-access.pda is set to
Anyone: No
Console: No
Active Console: Yes
and I am logged into gnome locally.

f. adding my user under explicit authorisations with 'always' does not help either (and should not be necessary anyway).

g. I'll attach the output of the devices that show up in hal-device when the Palm is connected.

h. The box is x86_64 so I set the arch explicitly, but it may very well affect all arches.

(Just to check we're starting from a known working point, you got this working on F9 in the end?)

Could you do a:

getfacl /dev/bus/usb/<usb bus used>/*

when the hotsync button is pressed and post the output, please?

Looking at your hal output I can't see a access_control.file set - this could be the source of the problems, unless the mechanism has changed in hal/policykit.

If this is a perms problem - and it looks like one - it should be re-filed against HAL/PolicyKit. The config was moved out of pilot-link and into those packages upstream.
