F8-x86_64 dccm problem & confusion



Greetings;

2nd send, no reply to 1st.

Trying to make synce work on my lappy.  Its an F8 x86_64 install on an HP 
dv5120us Notebook.

1) the error message when trying to start the synce-trayicon is missleading as 
it names a failure to start dccm as a major problem, but parks itself in the 
tray anyway.

2) starting synce-software-manager doesn't complain, but doesn't show anything 
either.  No pulldown config menu's or anything but the add-subtract etc 
buttons.  Is this the correct behaviour?

3) I finally installed the smart package manager because the updater appears  
to have been dumbed down until it just barely survives.  Using the search 
function of SPM, I find that the package is actually named vdccm, and is 
supposed to replace the dccm in the synce-kde package.  Thats fine, but there 
is no 'dccm' in the synce-kde package.  And all the vdccm stuff that's 
non-devel is installed already.

4) as user, do "strace /usr/bin/vdccm", which begins the failure stanza with a 
getuid()		= 500
setresuid(-1, 500, -1) 	= 0
setresuid(-1, 0, -1)	= -1 EPERM (Operation not permitted)
getuid()		= 500
geteuid()		= 500
write(2, "[int main(int, char**)53:] ",27[int main(int, char**):53] ) = 27
write(2, "Could not start - either because"...,90Could not start - either 
because vdccm is not installed suid, or you start directly as root) = 90

So I become root with an su - and repeat, and get essentially that same exact 
output but without the setresuid's -EPERM return, it and the following 
setresuid's are all = 0 this time:

getuid() 		= 0
setresuid(-1, 0, -1) 	= 0
setresuid(-1, 0, -1)	= 0
getuid()		= 0
geteuid()		= 0
write(2, "[int main(int, char**)53:] ",27[int main(int, char**):53] ) = 27
write(2, "Could not start - either because"...,90Could not start - either 
because vdccm is not installed suid, or you start directly as root) = 90

This does not appear to be an selinux problem, but a packaging problem, so how 
do I fix the already installed /usr/bin/vdccm?

Its perms now read -rwsr-xr-x according to ls -l.

And 5) will this fix the synce-trayicon since its error message says dccm, not 
vdccm?

6) what's the relationship to raki, do they clash and fsck things up fighting 
over resources?

Thanks.
