    org.freedesktop Error.


    This error was first reported here as a "Add/Remove Software" error, in this thread.
    http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/red...tml#post649611

    I have since gotten a similar error when trying to run the "Services" application. It failed to start, so I ran it from the terminal, and got this message.
    dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.AccessDenied: A security policy in place prevents this sender from sending this message to this recipient, see message bus configuration file (rejected message had interface "org.fedoraproject.Config.Services.ServiceHerd er" member "list_services" error name "(unset)" destination ":1.63")
    This is a new installation of Fedora 10, and updated using YUM.

    Fedora 10
    Gnome desktop
    2.6.27.5-117.fc10.i686

    Thanks, but did you have to post a link to our arch-enemy!

    I found reference to the problem, and a fix in the works, on the Fedora Forums.

    I tried the recommended fix, by upgrading with yum. It failed because of package dependencies. I will give it some time, and try again later. I did just enable the rpmfusion repositories, so maybe that is part of the dependency problem.

    Edit: I disabled the rpmfusion repositories, and still couldn't get the update. I don't think that the fix is in the repositories yet.

    Using the fix suggested by leigh123 here, I ran this command.
    Code:
    su
    yum --enablerepo=u*g update gnome-packagekit kpackagekit
    I then rebooted, and the add/remove software appllication seems to work again. I still could not start he Services application.

    I then was able to run yum to update it, without any dependency errors.

    There are three packages released to fix this problem:
    PackageKit-0.3.12-1.fc10
    gnome-packagekit-0.3.12-1.fc10
    kpackagekit-0.3.1-9.fc10

    They are not in the repositories yet, but they are available through here.
    https://admin.fedoraproject.org/upda...t-0.3.1-9.fc10

    I tried manually installing them. The gnome-packagekit installed OK. But when I tried to install the PackageKit rpm, this is what I got.
    Code:
    # rpm -Uvh PackageKit-0.3.12-1.fc10.i386.rpm
    error: Failed dependencies:
        PackageKit-glib = 0.3.12-1.fc10 is needed by PackageKit-0.3.12-1.fc10.i386
        PackageKit-udev-helper = 0.3.12-1.fc10 is needed by PackageKit-0.3.12-1.fc10.i386
        PackageKit-yum = 0.3.12-1.fc10 is needed by PackageKit-0.3.12-1.fc10.i386
        PackageKit-yum-plugin = 0.3.12-1.fc10 is needed by PackageKit-0.3.12-1.fc10.i386
        PackageKit = 0.3.11-4.fc10 is needed by (installed) PackageKit-glib-0.3.11-4.fc10.i386
        PackageKit = 0.3.11-4.fc10 is needed by (installed) PackageKit-yum-0.3.11-4.fc10.i386
    And when i tried to install the kpackagekit rpm, this is what I got.
    Code:
     rpm -Uvh kpackagekit-0.3.1-9.fc10.i386.rpm
    error: Failed dependencies:
        libpackagekit-qt.so.11 is needed by kpackagekit-0.3.1-9.fc10.i386
    It looks like dependency hell, I'll wait for the official fix for this one.

    From what I've been reading in various places, we are about to go through a *kit oriented phase with Policykit, Packagekit, and Consolekit. Maybe other *kits to follow?

    Wonder if all distros plan to implement any, or all of them?
