Description Bastien Nocera 2009-07-30 19:58:00 UTC
For gnome-bluetooth's killswitch code to work, the user on the local console needs to have access to /dev/rfkill.

I still need this as a stop-gap in the udev packages in Fedora 12, until we come up with a proper way to implement it.

The HAL provided killswitch interface stopped working with the new rfkill infrastructure in the kernel. So I ported this to the new infrastructure.

Unless somebody comes up and writes a daemon in the next day, what you'll end up with is a half-broken interface.

then add /lib/udev/rules.d/gnome-bluetooth.rules with:
KERNEL=="rfkill", ENV{ACL_MANAGE}="1"

and take responsibility for all security issues.

Done in rawhide, will request tagging for alpha.
