Description Colin Walters 2009-01-26 14:57:52 EST
Looks like we need at least:

allow system_dbusd_t hald_t:dbus send_msg;

allow system_dbusd_t unconfined_t:dbus send_msg;

According to dwalsh these are in Fedora, but not EL5.

In general the send_msg permission should be used bidirectionally with the bus; it's not very useful to be able to send a message but not get a reply.
