Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 190722
Session locking doesn't work in KDE - kcheckpass is missing in latest kdebase
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:31 EST
Description of problem:
Lock your screen, then try to unlock it
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Lock screen (Menu -> Lock Session)
2. Press a key to bring up password dialog
3. Enter password
"Cannot unlock the session because the authentication system failed to work; you
must kill kdesktop_lock (pid ####) manually"
Unlock the session
In looking into this problem, I found that since updating kdebase last night,
kcheckpass no longer exists. This is a HUGE problem, obviously.
