[SOLVED] after upgrade to systemd only login as root is allowed

Hi there,

I cant just login as user root after a upgrade to systemd. Please have a look here:
https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/33093

Are there any hints to solve this issue?

Re: [SOLVED] after upgrade to systemd only login as root is allowed

There is a typo:

I can't login as a typical user without special privileges. Only the login as user root is accepted!

Re: [SOLVED] after upgrade to systemd only login as root is allowed

** (process:553): WARNING **: Unable to register authentication agent: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1 was not provided by any .service files
Error registering authentication agent: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1 was not provided by any .service files (g-dbus-error-quark, 2)

those errors suggests polkit is either not installed or failed to start.

Re: [SOLVED] after upgrade to systemd only login as root is allowed

Hi,

[root@image1 ~]# ps -ef | grep polkit
root       463   459  0 21:11 pts/0    00:00:00 grep polkit
[root@image1 ~]# systemctl status polkit.service
polkit.service - Authorization Manager
  Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/polkit.service; static)
  Active: inactive (dead)
    Docs: man:polkit(8)
  CGroup: name=systemd:/system/polkit.service

[root@image1 ~]# pacman -Q polkit
polkit 0.107-4

I guess polkit is running!

Because I'm working on command line and not in a desktop environment I have in /etc/systemd/system/ NOT the directory graphical.target.wants but instead multi-user.target.wants !

Any other/more hints or tips?

regards,

frigg

Please edit your posts to use [code ] [/code ] tags (minus spaces).

EDIT: Why do you think polkit is running? It seems to be installed but that's a different issue.

Re: [SOLVED] after upgrade to systemd only login as root is allowed

Polkit is not running! Its process should appear like this in ps:
00:00:00 /usr/lib/polkit-1/polkitd --no-debug
Also systemctl says polkit is "inactive (dead)"

This setting is unrelated to the problem, i use multi-user.target on my laptop and server, where polkit is working fine.
I think you can find out more by searching through the journal.

Hm, how is this daemon started? As I'm not very familiar with systemd I guess polkitd should be started by dbusd? Is there anybody who can provide an answer?

Re: [SOLVED] after upgrade to systemd only login as root is allowed

Can you start the service manually? If not, what errors do you get?

Please use [code ][/code ] tags!

The wiki page on systemd will probably be useful.

Well, I've red this doku but can't find any helpfull information about my issue. Do you have another maybe better link to the appropriate documentation?

Here is the output

Re: [SOLVED] after upgrade to systemd only login as root is allowed

systemctl status polkit  and journalctl -b | grep polkit should also give info about the error.

Error switcing to user polkitd: Error changing to home directory /: Permission denied

That suggest something is wrong with the polkitd user.
check your /etc/shadow file, it should have something like this :

polkitd:!:15644:0:99999:7:::

Re: [SOLVED] after upgrade to systemd only login as root is allowed

Note that you have an 8 where Lone_Wolf (and I) have a 4 in shadow. But I've no idea if this is significant or not.

Try starting the daemon using systemctl:

systemctl start polkitd.service

or

systemctl start polkit.service

I'm a bit confused because the install section of the polkitd.service file says it is wanted by graphical.target rather than multi-user.target and I'm also not certain what the difference between the two services is since the Exec lines look to be the same.

Even if starting it this way fails, the output might provide more clues.

I guess (hope :-)) it's not, because this is the lastchanged field, which indicates the last password change in days since Jan 1, 1970...

Re: [SOLVED] after upgrade to systemd only login as root is allowed

So are you actually missing files? Either .service files or polkit files? Have you tried reinstalling the relevant packages, if so?

I've just reinstalled polkit. Is there any other relevant package I have to reinstall?

Should I perform a

ls -l -R

on a subdirectory to get a complete list? But I have to know the starting (sub)dir...

Re: [SOLVED] after upgrade to systemd only login as root is allowed

I may not be a great person to ask as I just discovered this:

$ pacman -Qo /usr/lib/systemd/system/polkit*
/usr/lib/systemd/system/polkit.service is owned by polkit 0.107-4
error: No package owns /usr/lib/systemd/system/polkitd.service

So I apparently have a file which I should not and I'm not sure why...

Re: [SOLVED] after upgrade to systemd only login as root is allowed

there's no /usr/lib/system/systemd/polkitd.service on my system.

frigg, run id polkitd
It should output something like this :

uid=102(polkitd) gid=102(polkitd) groups=102(polkitd)

The 102 may be a different number on your system, what matters is that there's both a user polkitd and a group polkitd.
If those are present, atleast we can be sure the user/group polkitd are present.

have a look:

As mentioned some postings above I changed the default target to boot into from graphical.target to multi-user.target using systemctl:
systemctl enable multi-user.target

No more changes were done!

I've wrote/customized a udevrule for adding usb drives (usbstick, external usb drive,...):

[root@image1 ~]# cat //etc/udev/rules.d/11-media-by-label-auto-mount.rules
KERNEL!="sd[a-z][0-9]", GOTO="media_by_label_auto_mount_end"

# Import FS infos
IMPORT{program}="/sbin/blkid -o udev -p %N"

# Get a label if present, otherwise specify one
ENV{ID_FS_LABEL}!="", ENV{dir_name}="%E{ID_FS_LABEL}"
ENV{ID_FS_LABEL}=="", ENV{dir_name}="usbhd-%k"

# Global mount options
ACTION=="add", ENV{mount_options}="relatime"
# Filesystem-specific mount options (777/666 dir/file perms for ntfs/vfat)
ACTION=="add", ENV{ID_FS_TYPE}=="vfat|ntfs", ENV{mount_options}="$env{mount_options},utf8,gid=100,dmask=000,fmask=111"

# Mount the device
ACTION=="add", RUN+="/bin/mkdir -p /media/%E{dir_name}", RUN+="/bin/mount -o $env{mount_options} /dev/%k /media/%E{dir_name}", RUN+="/bin/chmod 1770 /media/%E{dir_name}"

# Clean up after removal

# Exit

Should I reopen bug #33093 ?

Re: [SOLVED] after upgrade to systemd only login as root is allowed

Your "drilling down" yields nothing of relevance or value. However, looking back...

[root@image1 ~]# ls -la /home
total 40
drwxrwx--T  5 root     root      4096 Dec 27 07:39 .

Why does your /home have these bizzare permissions? Please fix this.

You've yet to display evidence of an actual bug.

Re: [SOLVED] after upgrade to systemd only login as root is allowed

I recall seeing sometime ago people having problems with proper mounting and permissions due to your media-automount udev rule.  It used to be in the udev or usb storage wiki but was taken out some time ago probably due to the problems caused by it after introduction of systemd.
