Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 102664
RFE: redhat-control-network can't change profiles as user
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:31 EST
Description of problem:
When starting redhat-control-network as a normal user, I am prompted for root
password. It should be possible to disable this behavior.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.log in as normal user
3.try to change profile
Prompts for root password.
Should not prompt for root password. Normal users ought to be able to switch
As I see it, the point of this GUI tool is to let casual users manage network
connectivity. In some cases, this should include switching profiles, for example
DHCP at home and static IP at ofice. Asking for root password defeats this purpose.
Maybe there could be a checkbox for profiles, similar to the device checkbox:
Allow all users to enable and disable the profile.
this is not possible, because it modifies system wide settings and requires root
permissions to do so..
though one can argue, the consoleuser should be able to do so...
