Mandriva: Updated dbus packages fix D-Bus specification compliance Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake On Mandriva Linux 2007.0, the path for D-Bus system bus socket was not following D-Bus specification. This could cause some implementation of the D-Bus specification to not detect the system bus correctly. This updated package ensures the location of the system bus is exported through BUS_SYSTEM_BUS_ADDRESS, in compliance with D-Bus specification.
