Re: problem with gphoto2 w/ FC5

Hi,
once upgrading to FC5 I lost my ability as a user to use my digital camera.
Everything works still fine if I use it as root. As a used, from gphoto2 --debug I got

and the relevant part from root account is:

I'm confident that the problem with permission. In FC4 the hotplug was used which setup such permission. What's the equivalent in FC5. I read about udev and even was able to write two rules, one for my usb stick and another for my camera. The problem is that my camera is not mounted as USB drive, I need to use software in order to download my pictures. From past experience I have suspisious that it may be related to wrong SELinux settings, I may be wrong though.

The problem is most likely related to permissions for the device and may not have anything to do with SELinux.

The best way to eliminate SELinux from the "suspect list" is to run 'setenforce 0' in a root terminal. This will put SELinux in permissive and will log errors in the audit log or /var/log/messages. You should be able to access your pictures if it is SELinux.

The removal of hotplug effected several programs because of the needs udev (I am guessing) must do to do what hotplug was doing before.

I know that gnomad2 and some scanners were fixed. I don't recall if there were fixes for camera software. It would be good to look in bugzilla for bugs related to cameras since FC5 and no hotplug.

I would appreciate any feedback on this issue.
Valentin.
