Thank you, that you have take the time for reporting this bug. For examining the
Bug I have the following question:
How to you start kyum?
If you call kyum from a console window like xterm or Konsole, then kyum don't
ask for the root password. But if you call kyum from the K-Menu, then you will
be asked for the root password, becouse in the desktop file of kyum kyum will be
started wia kdesdu.
But KYum *should* ask for a passwd even if started from the CLI. In user
context it can't do anything usefull. I do note the different behaviour when
selected from the menus, and when called from the CLI.
I think it's a bug to not ask for the passwd from the CLI as well. I may need
to be moved and hooked into consolehelper or something to do the right thing.
I have create a new version kyum 0.7.5-3 which should be available in the next
days on FC-4 and devel.
This version should fixed your requirement.
Becouse the reported don't complaints, that the offer solution doesn't word, I
will close this bug.
