From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
When I run 'konsole' on a shell, he says konsole_grantpty doesn't have
the necessary permissions to chmod the respective /dev/pts/X device.
The output is very clear, as well as the solution to the problem.

this is an example output:

[user@host user]$ konsole
konsole: cannot chown /dev/pts/4.
Reason: Operation not permitted
konsole_grantpty not installed root-suid
konsole: chownpty failed for device /dev/pts/4::/dev/pts/4.
       : This means the session can be eavesdroped.
       : Make sure konsole_grantpty is installed in
       : /usr/bin/ and setuid root.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:  jesus dude... that's just it :)

Expected Results:  no output, or almost none
