Description Rahul Sundaram 2009-05-27 00:48:52 EDT
Description of problem:

usermode/consolehelper is deprecated since Fedora has a better framework now
called PolicyKit. Please switch to using that instead

Comment 1 Will Woods 2009-05-27 13:20:26 EDT
Fine, but where's the porting guide for converting consolehelper apps to use PolicyKit? 

The only porting guide I've found is http://cgit.freedesktop.org/PolicyKit/tree/docs/PORTING-GUIDE - PolicyKit to polkit1.
Comment 2 Rahul Sundaram 2009-05-28 08:52:37 EDT
consolehelper and PolicyKit is not really at the same level. So it is not really a port. You can look at how PackageKit does it for example. Might be overkill for Preupgrade. So I will it upto to you.

Added 'FutureFeature' keyword to avoid rawhide base
