I thought ConsoleKit was responsible for propagating the information about console seats that is used to set these permissions. Apparently this is wrong and pam_console is still responsible for it on Redhat, so please forgive the mistake. > - FWIW, mediating device access through group membership is > considered broken by most people that care about security . > AFAIK, Ubuntu is moving away from it too. I am well aware that group membership is not a silver bullet. Still, I’d be glad if security people helped implement the missing pieces in the kernel rather than tell us every available solution we have is wrong :) > Again, you are free to do whatever you want in your OS.

As long as this remains clear, I have no objection to making ConsoleKit a mandatory piece of the desktop. Actually, the uses that e.g. PulseAudio can have for it are really nice things to have. > Please avoid spreading misinformation. Thanks. This was certainly not my intention.
