Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 469235
System Settings are not rendered with open KDE su dialog
Last modified: 2008-11-05 23:04:13 EST
Description of problem:
If I start the "Login Manager" from the "System Settings", I get that "KDE su" dialog to authenticate as root. While that dialog is open, the system settings windows is no longer rendered (i.e. just shows some white and grey, no icons, buttons, text, ...). Rendering works again after KDE su is closed (doesn't matter in what way).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
- Fedora 10 S3 (installed from KDE LiveCD-ISO on USB-key), updated to latest
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the "Login Manager" from the "System Settings".
2. Leave "KDE su" open
3. Bring another (maximized) window to the foreground.
4. Bring the "System Settings" to the foreground.
Doesn't render anymore in the meantime.
Renders as usual.
There's this in kdebase-workspace-4.0.72-rootprivs.patch:
+ QProcess::execute( kdesu, args );
I think changing it to:
+ QProcess::startDetached( kdesu, args );
will fix this.
it's fixed in 4.1.2-8.
Please only close stuff RAWHIDE once it's actually tagged f10-final.
