Description n_k_samal 2008-04-19 05:12:34 EDT
Description of problem:
The root user generally works by logging as ordinary user. In cases of need the 
root user does a "su root" or enters the root password when asked by gui tool 
system-config-services and carries out necessary configuration changes. Most of 
the time the system does not respond when the root user tries to use the 
graphical gui tool system-config-services.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Log in as root and run the gui tool from system-config-services from 
applications menu.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Log in as ordinary uses
2.Go to applications > services.
3.Press enter
4.If no response for about 20 seconds log out and re-login again as non root 
user and repeat steps 2 and 3
5. If no response try step 4 once again.
6. After two /three/four trials the system asks to enter root password.
7. Now necessary changes can be made.
Actual results:
Most of the times no response.

Expected results:
The system should have asked the non root user to enter root password on the 
first time itself since he does not has the required privilages.

Additional info:
Full system profile is at http://www/smolt.org/show?/uuid=pub_85955a62-7804-
No such problem was seen in F7 where every time the graphical GUI tool system-
config-services was invoked by not root user, the system used to ask for root 
password. Once root password was entered necessary changes could be made.

I can't reproduce that. Would you please describe your environment in more
detail? For instance you say that you start the tool by going to "applications >
services" -- I'm using GNOME and the tool is at "System > Administration >
Services", what desktop environment do you use?
Comment 2 n_k_samal 2008-04-24 09:25:44 EDT
I am sorry, there was some typing error as I had posted the bug from another
machine since the machine running F-9-Beta was giving lots of problems. 

As you have rightly told the the tool is at "System > Administration >
Services." and not "applications > services ".

I am using Gnome. 

I did one yum update and now it is working fine. However the full gui window
(Service Configuration )takes a lot more time to appear when compared to F-7
running on the same machine.

Thanks for your help.

Original issue resolved after update as per reporters notes.

Please file a new bug report if the window is still taking an excessive amount of time to load.
