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.

Comment 2 G.Wolfe Woodbury 2006-03-05 18:26:39 EST
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.
