Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 33329
Gnorpm no longer prompts for root passwd.
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:32:23 EDT
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?
Does this still happen if you run gnorpm-auth instead of gnorpm?
Running gnome-auth gives the expected results; changing gnorpm->gnorpm-auth in
the menu editor fixes the problem.
This is still broken after updating from the newest Rawhide. Is gnorpm no longer
supposed to prompt for the root password?
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
In /usr/share/gnome/apps/System/gnorpm.desktop one should replace
I've fixed this now. Whenever 0.96-5 reaches RAWHIDE I will mark this bug fixed.
In rawhide now.
