Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 164039
kcontrol not accepting super user access request
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:10 EST
Description of problem, bug, incorrect information, or enhancement request:
I have a dell 700m laptop and kcontrol is not functioning properly. It used to
work fine but stopped all of a sudden. The problem comes up on pages like
wireless network under "Internet and Network" where root privileges are needed
for creating new wireless configurations. When I click on administrative mode,
it asks for a password after which it displays the initial kde (blue) screen
with kde information and all. I am new to linux, so do not know if theres any
log file that I should attach with this. If you can tell what and how to get it,
I would be more than glad to help.
Version of release notes this bug refers to:
Fedora Core 4 final release
Not sure how this got assigned to the release notes agent
(email@example.com), although the Subject makes me suspect a bug
template was hijacked for this.
Reassigning to owner of kdeutils, attempt at Summary.
You also have this problem with KDE 3.4.2? I had this problem on my laptop,
after upgrading it was gone.
i'm not able to reproduce this problem with KDE 3.4.2 here. thought, it's fixed
in new version
I am running 3.4.2-0.fc4.1 and yes i am still having this problem. If you can
point me to any logs to look at i would be more than happy to send you the file.
I presume the problem has been caused from your old KDE config, could you please
try with a new user?
I created a new user and it works fine with it. Is there a way to cleanup the
KDE config for my profile?
Also, before I cleanup, are there any files from my config that I should be
submitting to find out why it happened?
perhaps removing $HOME/.kde/share/config/kdeglobals file should fix this problem
