#48045: dbus "no_root" fails to install
 Reporter:  ocroquette@…  |      Owner:  macports-tickets@…
     Type:  defect        |     Status:  new
 Priority:  Normal        |  Milestone:
Component:  ports         |    Version:  2.3.3
 Keywords:                |       Port:  dbus
 Command: "port install no_root", with the target directory in my user

 The first error is:

 error renaming
 .dbus-session.plist" to "/Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-
 session.plist": permission denied

 A workaround is to set startupitem_install=no in macports.conf

 The second error is:
 :debug:activate Backtrace: could not set group for file
 "/Users/user/bin/macports/var/run/dbus": not owner

 (at that point however, the port is already activated, so it's possible to
 install other ports that depend directly or indirectly on dbus)
