consolekit makes trouble
I am really despaired! Due to a defective RAM, my /usr was corrupted, and so I
had to reinstall the system from scratch. I installed debian/testing
completely new (except /home, which is on a separate partition). As I am
courious, I saved my package list by dpkg --get-selections > package.txt, and
after the fresh installation, I could reinstall them again. I did this with
the command: apt-get install $(cut -f1 package.txt), which worked fine.
But after that, I got a problem, and now working for hours to solve it:
As I am using kdm (and kde), I get an error:
kdm: :0: Cannot open ConsoleKit session: Unable to open session: Failed
to execute program /usr/lib/dbus-1.0/dbus-daemon-launch-helper: Succes
I can click it away, and I can use kde without any trouble.
Ok, to see, what hapend, I examined the log and found more information:
May 29 09:33:43 localhost console-kit-daemon: WARNING:
polkit_authority_get: Error getting authority: Error initializing authority:
Error calling StartServiceByName for org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1:
GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ExecFailed: Failed to execute
program /usr/lib/dbus-1.0/dbus-daemon-launch-helper: Success
So it looks like, there might be some authorization problem. I googled a lot,
but found no usefull hints. Somebody solved it, by "unmerging glib-
networking", but that was in gentoo.
I will be very happy, if someone could help me, as I there is not much
information about consolekit and dbus to find.
Thank you very much for any help.
P.S. Sorry, if I sent this wrong, firstname.lastname@example.org claimed my e-
