ConsoleKit session not properly opened through LXDM

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #635395 +++
Description of problem:
ConsoleKit session is not properly opened on the F14 Beta RC2 image. Everything that uses dbus is basically broken.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 14 Beta RC2 LXDE
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download the image from http://serverbeach1.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/stage/14-Beta.RC2/Live/Fedora-14-Beta-i686-Live-LXDE/
1. Boot it
2. Try to connect wifi with nm-applet
NM should connect to the wifi
Start nm-applet from the commandline, it will tell you that dbus gets blocked. This is an issue with ConsoleKit, see the thread on xfce4-dev:
I can't duplicate this with a live Xfce kvm guest from a nightly image. Seems to connect fine and show everything...
Perhaps you tested with a machine with lxdm enabled?
Could this be an lxdm/consokekit interaction issue?
I'll test the exact rc2 xfce image now.
Should this bug be really against lxde-common?
With http://serverbeach1.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/stage/14-Beta.RC2/Live/Fedora-14-Beta-i686-Live-XFCE/Fedora-14-Beta-i686-Live-XFCE.iso everything also works fine here.
Could it be hardware specific somehow?
Other testing welcome.
I'll download an image and give it a shot tonight.... My hardware seems to be breaking everything in RC2 right now :-P.
I can reproduce this. NM can't connect to a wireless network. ck-list-sessions reports active = FALSE and is-local = FALSE. It also reports seat = 'Seat2', which is odd. My working GNOME installed system reports seat = 'Seat1'.
Running nm-applet at a terminal reports 'activate_connection_cb(): Connection activation failed: No user settings service available'.
Adam: This is with an Xfce image? logging in via gdm?
No. This bug is for LXDE. 635395 is the XFCE bug.
Argh. Wrong bug. ;(
I'll move my comments over there.
Kevin and I think this may be a bug in LXDM.
Looks like it can be fixed with an update to LXDM git version, stay tuned.
lxdm-0.3.0-0.1.20100921gitcf9b2cbb.fc14 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 14.
So, the good news: this fix works (couldn't test automount right now, but I was able to connect to the wireless network connection that failed before, and ck-list-sessions output now matches other spins).
The bad news: this fix causes / exposes two SELinux issues:
nevertheless, marking 'verified'. Will track Dan down to look at the SELinux stuff.
