Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 231103
system-config-lvm doesn't ask for the root password
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:58 EST
Description of problem:
When launching s-c-lvm as a normal user it doesn't ask for the root password
like the other s-c-* tools. It just shows and error window that says "Unknown
error". Executing it as the root user works fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 7 Test 2 installation from LiveCD with all of the updates available as of
As a normal user go to System -> Administration -> s-c-lvm
As a normal user execute system-config-lvm on a terminal window
Error window saying "Unknown error".
system-config-lvm should ask me for the root password and starts properly.
Yikes - this is a terrible regression. looking into it...
Probably a duplicate of bz170632, have to verify
This bug is still present in Fedora 7 Test 3 Live CD. It's not that critical
but still annoying.
Still happening in Test 4 (updated through yum).
This is fixed in the last update (system-config-lvm-1.1.1-1.0.fc7). Thanks.
