Description Matthias Clasen 2009-05-09 13:25:13 EDT
We are going to land polkit 1.0 in F12 soon. This is going to require changes
to polkit using applications. Thankfully, mostly simplifications.

See http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/PolicyKitOne  

In the case of gnome-applets, only the cpufreq applet uses PolicyKit, and there is no mechanism separation, so it is just 'fake'. We should either just drop cpufreq applet or build without PolicyKit support, I think.

Installed 2.27.2-1.fc12

Cannot start the virtual machine manager or the power manager. They both bring up the gnome crash dialog. Reverting to gnome-applets-2.27.1-1.fc12.i586 makes the problem go away.

I have selinux off.

Note also


In this case though, I am using still using


since the newer version was causing the problems in 496493. I haven't tried the newer version of policycoreutils with the gnome applets 2.27.2 to see if it is successful.

You are in the wrong bug.
Comment 4 darrell pfeifer 2009-06-01 10:35:07 EDT
Which bug should I be in? Can you point me to a better place?

If gnome-applets-2.27.2-1.fc12 is installed then choosing gnome applications from the menu that require root privs die. Reverting to 2.27.1-1.fc12 makes the problem go away.

This bug is for changes to polkit that appear in f12, which is what I installed.

The patch in this bug has not been applied yet, so it can hardly be responsible for your problems.
Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 11:33:24 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
