Description Binary Runner 2016-01-19 11:38:58 UTC
pkcheck throws segfault when run without the action argument - I don't think segfaulting should be a normal behaviour

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. list acrtion with pkaction, pick on, e.g. org.freedesktop.consolekit.system.restart
2. pick some process get its PID
3. run 'pkcheck -p $PID -a $ACTION' , it should work and works (for the restart action it will probably produce 'Not authorized.')
3. run 'pkcheck -p $PID' , it produces:
** (pkcheck:NNNN): CRITICAL **: polkit_authority_check_authorization_sync: assertion 'action_id != NULL' failed
Segmentation fault
Actual Results:  
segfaults - "see steps to reproduce"
NNNN - us a number that changes with every attempt 

Expected Results:  
prints error message about missing action id

Comment 1 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2017-09-30 09:57:31 UTC
Looks like an upstream bug, could you report it at https://bugs.freedesktop.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=PolicyKit&component=daemon and paste the link here ?
Comment 2 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2018-11-17 23:54:42 UTC
Should be a simple contribution to upstream should anyone want to do this.
