Failed to acquire org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit: An SELinux policy prevents this sender from sending this message
Last modified: 2013-08-20 07:56:53 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm running a freshly installed Fedora 19 with MATE.
After providing the password at the login screen (lightdm), a SELinux log entry is created and a ConsoleKit timeout appears in /var/log/messages.
I suspect that this is the reason for the ~51 seconds delay before the complete desktop appears - more details below.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm -qa *selinux*
rpm -qa dbus*
always (I can reproduce this in a seconds F19/MATE installation running in a VirtualBox)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 19 and choose MATE as your desktop environment
2. After the installation is complete enter the password at the login screen (lightdm)
3. observe/confirm the ~51 seconds delay before the destop environment appears (taskbars, Applications menu,..)
It takes ~51 seconds till the desktop environment appears after lightdm got the password from the user.
Note the following log entry:
console-kit-daemon: console-kit-daemon: WARNING: Failed to acquire org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit: An SELinux policy prevents this sender from sending this message to this recipient, 0 matched rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.25" (uid=0 pid=1426 comm="lightdm --session-child 14 19 ") interface="org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit.Manager" member="OpenSessionWithParameters" error name="(unset)" requested_reply="0" destination="org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit" (uid=0 pid=1565 comm="/usr/sbin/console-kit-daemon --no-daemon ")
dbus: [system] Failed to activate service 'org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit': timed out
The desktop environment should appear within a few seconds.
comments for the attached logfile:
@14:12:59: the user did hit enter at the lightdem login screen
@14:13:51: the complete desktop environment appears
Created attachment 788455 [details]
relevant lines from /var/log/messages (starting with the point where the user provides the password at lightdm)
