$ sudo yum -y install gypsy
  gypsy.x86_64 0:0.6-4.fc10                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           

$ bzr clone http://burtonini.com/bzr/gypsy-status/
$ cd gypsy-status/
$ ./status.py 
Traceback (most recent call last):
dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.freedesktop.Gypsy was not provided by any .service files
$ cat /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.freedesktop.Gypsy.service
[D-BUS Service]

Either dbus is broken and doesn't notice the new file, or the gypsy package is missing something to make dbus notice it.

Looking at this further it seems that it runs OK if you run /usr/libexec/gypsy-daemon manually. So it seems that the registration of the service if the service isn't already running has issues. I think the /etc/dbus-1/system.d/Gypsy.conf is suppose to take care of the run running rego stuff.

The following link seems likely the best coverage of the possible issues.


But it seems the upstream gypsy project doesn't have much momentum at the moment.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
