Description Kay Sievers 2012-01-30 08:37:14 EST
Please remove:
  MODE="660", GROUP="plugdev"

The group 'plugdev' is a misguided Ubuntu-only feature to solve hotplug device
permissions. Other distributions do not need this, and should not start using
any group assignments.

Using unknown users in udev rules can render the entire system unusable. It
might not be able to bootup in LDAP or other and network directory
Comment 1 Kay Sievers 2012-03-18 17:44:37 EDT
Using unknown system groups in the boot-critical path is known to cause
serious issues for some setups which use directory servers to resolve

A single wrong udev rule can render the entire system un-bootable. Therefore, installing udev rules comes with a certain responsibility; such an issue can
not be ignored for that long. This needs to be fixed now! Please fix the rules
or drop the rules file entirely if in doubt.

Comment 2 Adam Williamson 2012-03-19 17:28:51 EDT
Discussed at 2012-03-19 QA meeting, acting as a blocker review meeting. This bug is rejected as a Beta blocker (and would be rejected as a Final blocker), as argyllcms is not installed in a default package set, nor in fact in *any* easily-selectable package set (it's Optional in comps), nor on either of the supported desktop live images. As this is very unlikely to affect an initial installation, it doesn't merit blocker status.

I think I still see this problem with argyllcms-1.4.0.

# grep /lib/udev/rules.d -r -i -e plugdev

55-Argyll.rules:ENV{COLOR_MEASUREMENT_DEVICE}=="*?", ENV{ACL_MANAGE}!="*?", MODE="660", GROUP="plugdev"

Comment 7 Kay Sievers 2012-07-15 15:50:23 EDT
Gah, these broken rules are still in rawhide.

This got fixed F17 only, but not in master/rawhide?
Comment 8 Matthias Clasen 2012-08-13 10:16:07 EDT
Still happening in post-branch F18.

But the line before the problematic plugdev one,

TEST=="/lib/udev/udev-acl", TEST=="/var/run/ConsoleKit/database", ENV{COLOR_MEASUREMENT_DEVICE}=="*?", ENV{ACL_MANAGE}="1"

is not really right either, or is it ?
Shouldn't that be TAG+="uaccess"?
Comment 9 Kay Sievers 2012-08-14 09:03:31 EDT
The ConsoleKit stuff should be entirely removed, yes,

Nothing should directly set internal udev tags, they might change whenever
There is a COLOR_MEASUREMENT_DEVICE flag supported, which is probably intended
to be used here?
Comment 10 Paulo Fidalgo 2012-09-10 05:24:26 EDT
I still have this on F17 (with the latest updates).

Me too. I don't see a reference to plugdev in /etc/udev*

without udev references on /etc/udev but with the same references as comment #6 om /lib/udev/rules.d
