Description Bill Nottingham 2010-08-11 16:07:13 EDT
Description of problem:

dbus has:


systemd has:


Nothing owns:


Something should own the directory, and it's likely dbus.target should move to the dbus package too.

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


How reproducible:

Comment 1 Lennart Poettering 2010-08-14 14:08:33 EDT
I think it makes sense to keep dbus.target in systemd. While this is not really important for systemd itself I'd like to keep this similar to how syslog is handled:

The generic syslog.target unit you find in systemd yourself, while the various available implementations then install syslog.service/syslog.socket as they see fit, with different contents and even different names. 

While we (currently?) only have a single D-Bus implementation I think it is the path of least surprise if we follow the same scheme of dbus and syslog here.

The directory ownership should indeed be fixed.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2010-08-16 12:46:07 EDT
I'm not sure planning for ever having a separate dbus implementation is useful. CC'ing Colin in any case, as the packaging changes may affect dbus.
Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2010-09-08 11:59:12 EDT
So, this is just a dbus packaging bug, right ?

It needs to own /lib/systemd/system/dbus.target.wants

Should we move this bug to dbus ?
