Description Rahul Sundaram 2009-05-27 00:55:23 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 John Poelstra 2009-06-08 16:18:48 EDT
Added 'FutureFeature' keyword to avoid rawhide base
Comment 2 Michal Hlavinka 2009-08-13 04:35:18 EDT
switching to PolicyKit does not make sense here:
- setuptool is only a menu for executing system-config-*-tui, it has only one source file with only a few lines of the code

what is does: thanks consolehelper it gets root permissions and allows you to use several s-c-*-tui tools without the need of entering root password every time for every tool you use, nothing more, nothing less
