    system-config-services stopped working after 12/8 update

    Since yesterday's "system update", I can no longer run System -> Administration -> Services. When I run system-config-services manually, I get the following output:

    Code:
    [mark@zm-pc ~]$ /usr/bin/system-config-services

    Same here. Doesn't run from the menu, doesn't run from the run dialog and here's the result of trying to run it from the command line:

    I'm sure that within a day or two this will be fixed. This is the price you pay for running bleeding edge software / operating systems.

    While updates don't come, I solved this problem in my system. It was required to edit /etc/dbus-1/system.conf. Comment the lines:

    Code:
    <allow send_requested_reply="true" send_type="method_return"/>
    <allow send_requested_reply="true" send_type="error"/>
    And add the following ones:

    Code:
    <!-- Fix to avoid access denials on PackageKit and others -->
    <allow send_requested_reply="true" />
    This workaround has been posted elsewhere here in FedoraForum, just don't remember exactly the topic

    I updated my system and I am not experiencing the problem.

    But then this is entirely possible since the OP didn't list which Fedora release and version this occured with. Since I'm using F9 and i386 my guess is the problem occurs on: F10 and x86_64.

    I just installed the Koji update linked by 74000 above and still get an error, though it is different than before. This is f10.i386.

    I can run system-config-services as "su -" but, prior to the seventh I could start it from the menu as a user and only if I made a change was I prompted for the root passwd. This seemed logical to me. I guess another piece of the pie has not been updated yet.

    Which bug on Bugzilla is the most relevant one to post follow up issues to?

    What, you mean you think the bugzilla submission form is convoluted?

    FWIW I wouldn't bother submitting bug reports for this, even the local village donkey in a small spanish village I know knows about the problem. It will be fixed soon (apparently), and then pass into folklore soon after. Poems and songs will probably be written about this week in fedoraworld

    The folks who fix the problem only have a limited variety of systems to test the fix on. I have installed all the known fixes from Koji and some things are now working but others like the subject tool are not working as expected. I have output I can post. I guess I can troll bugzilla for the one I thinks is relevant. I just thought there would be others who have done so already.
    I'm all for the poems and songs. It's what we install Fedora for anyway isn't it?

    I'm not sure why, for ~$2000 I could purchase and set up at least 10 very varied systems for them, that's probably 1 weeks wage for the guy who put the dbus update into the standard repos.

    I tried to update the system-config-services but i recieved the following error when trying to execute the command:

    [root@localhost Faris]# system-config-services

    [root@localhost Faris]#
    any suggestions?

    EDIT: I tried to excute the command under " su - " and it worked.. but if i go to System->Administrator->Services, it will never work...
