Bug Description

Binary package hint: dbus

dbus' at_console ACL is the only remaining user of libpam-foreground. However, we want to get rid of that, dbus should use ConsoleKit instead to implement at_console.

Once dbus is fixed, pam can drop the libpam-foreground in common-session.

CK upstream's plan is to export the CK status to a directory, too (like /var/run/console), so that dbus does not need a dbus query to get the CK status.

consolekit (0.2.3-3ubuntu2) hardy; urgency=low

  * Add debian/patches/pam_console-compat.patch:
    - Create pam_console like tag files in /var/run/console. dbus can use them
      instead of the ones created by libpam-foreground, so that we can get rid
      of the latter. (See policykit-integration spec)
    - Forwarded to upstream: FD #14053
  * debian/rules: Include simple-patchsys.mk, so that this and
    consolekit-park.patch actually get applied.

  * debian/control: Replace libpam-foreground dependency with consolekit (>=
    0.2.3-3ubuntu2), which provides pam_console compatible stamps in
    /var/run/console. (See policykit-integration spec)
  * Drop debian/patches/80-dbus-change-at-console-policy.patch: Not needed any
    more now.
