Description Kevin Kofler 2009-02-24 13:16:50 EST
Description of problem:
system-config-services has a hardcoded dependency on PolicyKit-gnome. Is this really necessary? In the KDE spin, we would like to ship PolicyKit-kde instead of PolicyKit-gnome. PolicyKit-kde also implements the org.freedesktop.PolicyKit.AuthenticationAgent service.

system-config-services is included on the current KDE spin. gnome-mount and system-config-services are the packages actually dragging PolicyKit-gnome onto the KDE spin.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. repoquery --repoid=rawhide --whatrequires PolicyKit-gnome
Actual results:
system-config-services requires PolicyKit-gnome.

Expected results:
system-config-services does not require PolicyKit-gnome.

Additional info:
Maybe a common Provides in both PolicyKit-gnome and PolicyKit-kde is needed?

I think so. Could you take care of that? This virtual dependency could be "dbus(session:org.freedesktop.PolicyKit.AuthenticationAgent)".

BTW: what happens when both PolicyKit-gnome and -kde packages are installed? Which one gets used if something accesses the org.freedesktop.PolicyKit.AuthenticationAgent bus name?
Comment 2 Kevin Kofler 2009-02-27 12:24:08 EST
In Rawhide, both PolicyKit-gnome and PolicyKit-kde now have:
Provides: PolicyKit-authentication-agent
so you can require this instead of PolicyKit-gnome.
Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2009-02-27 12:39:09 EST
As for coexistence of both, see bug 484945 - hopefully we can also get that sorted out by F11, but fixing the Requires allows us to ship only PolicyKit-kde on the KDE spin and thus also works around that issue.

Fixed in system-config-services-0.99.32-1.fc11 which is building right now.
