Description Harry Hart 2000-07-18 10:34:49 EDT
I performed an upgrade from RHL 6.0 to 6.2 (via CDROM).  Up2date package was not installed.  Used Gnorpm to find, download, install the 
latest package.  Dependency checking forced install of rpm-python, as well. When up2date is launched from panel (launcher), it prompts for 
root passwd, then disappears after passwd is entered.  When launched from X-terminal, it prompts for root passwd, then returns after about 2 
seconds, without displaying any other windows, dialog, or GUI.  Is there some other dependency that is not satisfied?  Thanks for looking into 
this issue!!

try running it logged in as root from a console and please tell me what happens.
Comment 2 Harry Hart 2000-09-22 02:09:47 EDT
If I correctly understand your request to try from console, that was already
tried, logged in as root.

Unfortunately, it is now mysteriously working.  I upgraded Gnome to 1.2, and did
some other upgrades, and it works.  Really don't know what fixed it, though. 
Sorry. - Harry
