Description of problem:
When setting SELINUX=enforcing it will prevent a kde application,that
requires SU to run.
Like KonquerorSU filemanager if you click on it, it will attempt to run
but the window that is supposed to popup to allow you type in SU
password, will not popup and after about 10sec. it will quit running.
This also happens if you try to run Terminal Program superuser mode.
If I reset SELINUX=permissive, and reboot computer, the the kde apps.
SU mode will popup window to allow you to type in SU password, and then
they will execute.
Only the KDE apps have this problem, SytemTools/Redhat Network,
Network Config all work fine and allow you to type in SU password and
I have test3 installed on a P3/800 and AMD athlon/MP running smp and
this problem occurs on both boxes, identicle situation.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1Click on /System Tools/More System Tools/File Manager - Superuser Mode.
2Application will start to run , in KDE
3 And after about ten seconds it just stops running..
Actual Results: Just pops back to KDE Desktop
Expected Results: A window to popup to allow you to type in SU password,
But it doesn't.
This problem has always been there in Fedora2 after Selinux was
installed. And Set to SELINUX=enforcing.
