Description Ed McKenzie 2001-03-27 00:55:23 UTC
The GNOME menu now launches 'gnorpm' instead of 'gnorpm-auth' as in 7.0,
skipping root authentication and making gnorpm somewhat less useful a tool.
Is this a bug or feature?

Comment 1 David Lawrence 2001-04-03 18:39:49 UTC
Does this still happen if you run gnorpm-auth instead of gnorpm?

Comment 2 Ed McKenzie 2001-04-03 18:55:38 UTC
Running gnome-auth gives the expected results; changing gnorpm->gnorpm-auth in
the menu editor fixes the problem.

Comment 3 Ed McKenzie 2001-04-06 21:47:46 UTC
This is still broken after updating from the newest Rawhide. Is gnorpm no longer
supposed to prompt for the root password?

Comment 4 Alan Cox 2001-05-03 14:33:30 UTC
This seems to be a bug. Gnorpm does now have a non-root mode but its not what RH
users expect. Confirmed in 7.1

Comment 5 pogosyan 2001-07-07 15:27:58 UTC
In /usr/share/gnome/apps/System/gnorpm.desktop  one should replace
Exec=gnorpm   for


Comment 6 Alexander Larsson 2001-07-12 19:21:45 UTC
I've fixed this now. Whenever 0.96-5 reaches RAWHIDE I will mark this bug fixed.

Comment 7 Alexander Larsson 2001-07-25 15:05:13 UTC
In rawhide now.
