Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 10:48:55 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

More information and reason for this action is here:
Comment 2 Mike McGrath 2009-06-22 16:26:55 EDT
Fixed upstream, will be released with the version we're shipping in a week or two.
Comment 3 Mike C 2009-08-25 17:21:24 EDT
Has this update been abandoned?  It is two months since comment #2 !
Comment 4 Fedora Update System 2009-08-26 10:55:37 EDT
smolt-1.3-1.fc11 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 11.
Comment 5 Mike C 2009-08-26 16:56:13 EDT
Closing this bug was perhaps premature.
Trying the new build smolt-1.3-1.fc11
[mike@samsung2 ~]$ smoltSendProfile 
Unable to save UUID, continuing...
Your UUID file could not be created: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/etc/smolt/hw-uuid'

The file referenced does not exist in the /etc/smolt directory.
Comment 6 Mike McGrath 2009-08-26 17:05:36 EDT
... that has nothing to do with the bug you reported.  I'll fix it in a bit though.
Comment 7 Mike McGrath 2009-08-26 17:16:26 EDT
Oh wait, this is from you not running smolt as root.  It doesn't have permission to write there.
Comment 8 Mike C 2009-08-27 03:11:56 EDT
But I have never had to run smolt as root before F11?  Has policy changed?
Comment 9 Mike C 2009-08-27 03:14:18 EDT
In F10 I can run smoltSendProfile as a normal user and there is no hw-uuid created in /etc/smolt/
Comment 10 Mike C 2009-08-27 05:04:01 EDT
Confirmed that the new version does work as root but not as user - which is more secure and probably better than previous versions.
Comment 11 Mike C 2009-08-27 09:59:27 EDT
The comments I added above refer to running on a Samsung NC10 with smolt data

However strangely I tried the original smolt running in F11 on a Dell Dimension 2400 which allowed me to run smoltSendProfile as a normal user though with the originally reported bug symptoms. However it did generate the profile correctly and produced it in

Then I updated from smolt-1.2-4.2.fc11 to smolt-1.3-1.fc11
Then it gives the same behaviour as in comments #9 and #10

So it seems that the need to run as root is new behaviour - which I do endorse!
Comment 12 Mike McGrath 2009-08-27 10:12:39 EDT
You can still run smoltSendProfile as a non-root user.  The error you are seeing is a non-fatal error.  It just indicates that normal users can't write to /etc/ because they can't :)
Comment 13 Fedora Update System 2009-08-27 18:56:02 EDT
smolt-1.3-1.fc11 has been pushed to the Fedora 11 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
