What versions PackageKit and gnome-packagekit?
Comment 2 Artem 2008-04-23 03:03:21 EDT
Comment 3 Richard Hughes 2008-04-23 05:06:49 EDT
Did it ask you for the admin password? Can you give me some more details pls?
Comment 4 Artem 2008-04-23 05:11:53 EDT
It doesn't ask for any password, as I login as root.
Comment 5 Richard Hughes 2008-04-23 06:22:48 EDT
You shouldn't login as root. PackageKit just won't work like that - it's
designed as a user tool. GTK was never designed to be run as the root user.
Comment 6 Robin Norwood 2008-04-23 12:10:16 EDT
We should probably at least catch this case, since, despite all warnings, some
people will still run X as root.

Fixed in PK: ef4c2d59397061ae594cd064b5ff6f12f7a11689 and GPK:

Want me to backport to stable?
Comment 8 Artem 2008-04-30 02:32:56 EDT
Would be nice to see it in F9 (I don't understand what do you mean by stable)
Comment 9 Richard Hughes 2008-05-01 06:30:18 EDT
Okay, we'll be getting 0.2.0 in F9 in a few weeks, so I'll mark it NEXTRELEASE.
