Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 179231
kppp requires consolehelper, missing dependency
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:22 EST
/usr/bin/kppp is a symlink to consolehelper, but the dependency is missing.
Requires: usermode-gtk would fix it (-gtk because kppp is a GUI app).
On the other hand, it would be even better to have this fixed in a way that
wouldn't require pulling in gtk2/glib2 stuff. Maybe using kdesu?
I would prefer kdesu too. consolehelper-gtk is fine, but kdesu looks more
natural in KDE environment (will require 1 line shell script, not symlink).

(someday maybe I'll take up the fight to reinstate use of kdesu...) :)
Hmmm, was using kdesu controversial too? I thought suid bits were what the Red
Hat folks objected to for security reasons, kdesu should be safe.
