Description Daniel Malmgren 2004-03-22 16:52:01 UTC
Description of problem: Up till last week I have been able to start applications that requires root privilegies as normal user, the program just asks for the root password in a nice requester and remembers that I have root privilegies for a period of time (showing those nice little keys in the notification area). However suddenly this behaviour has stopped. Nothing happens when I try to start those applications. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): pam-0.77-38 How reproducible: 100% Steps to Reproduce: 1. Log in as non root user 2. Try to start a program that requires root privilegies Actual results: Nada. Expected results: Ask me for root password and then start (supposing I give it the correct password). Additional info: I get the following in my /var/log/messages each time I try this: Mar 22 17:55:31 Datorn system-config-network(pam_unix): auth could not identify password for [root] Also tried downgrading pam to 0.77-36 (which has worked before), but it doesn't do any good, so I'm not sure this has with pam to do at all. Don't know where else to file it though...

Seems to work with latest versions. Closing.
