Description Aioanei Rares 2009-08-18 09:54:56 UTC
Description of problem:


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

0.99.33

How reproducible:

everytime

Steps to Reproduce:
1.start s-c-s
2.try to disable/stop a service
3.
  
Actual results:

When trying to alter a setting, s-c-s should ask for the root password, but it doesn't and thus won't change anything on clicking disable/enable and/or start/stop.

Expected results:


Additional info:

If running from console as root, I get this :
