Description Ed McKenzie 2001-03-26 19:55:23 EST
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 14:39:49 EDT
Does this still happen if you run gnorpm-auth instead of gnorpm?
Comment 2 Ed McKenzie 2001-04-03 14:55:38 EDT
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 17:47:46 EDT
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 10:33:30 EDT
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 11:27:58 EDT
In /usr/share/gnome/apps/System/gnorpm.desktop  one should replace
Exec=gnorpm   for

Comment 6 Alexander Larsson 2001-07-12 15:21:45 EDT
I've fixed this now. Whenever 0.96-5 reaches RAWHIDE I will mark this bug fixed.
Comment 7 Alexander Larsson 2001-07-25 11:05:13 EDT
In rawhide now.
