Description Albert Strasheim 2000-04-11 13:38:01 EDT

For some reason, after upgrading from 6.1 to 6.2 kppp dies with the
following after I enter my root password into userhelper's prompt (I am
running as a regular user):

Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: Client is not authorized to connect to Server
kppp: cannot connect to X server :0.0

However, when I do su -c kppp and type in my root password, kppp connects
to the X server and runs fine.

What gives?

Here is a solution.

1) Add the following line to /etc/security/pam_env.conf

2) Add the following line to /etc/pam.d/kppp , right before all other "auth"
auth       optional     /lib/security/pam_env.so

Works for me!

Change "SESSION=false" to "SESSION=true" in /etc/security/console.apps/kppp.
This is done in rawhide.
