Description of problem: unetbootin aborts immediately after launched by root user.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Name : unetbootin
Arch : x86_64
Version : 0
Release : 8.494bzr.fc14
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open up terminal
2. type 'su' and enter password to gain root privileges
3. type 'unetbootin'
Unetbootin aborts in less than one second after launch.
Unetbootin should start normally.
This is all the feedback I get when trying to start unetbootin:
GLib-GIO:ERROR:gdbusconnection.c:2270:initable_init: assertion failed: (connection->initialization_error == NULL)
Aborted (core dumped)
Please let me know how if you need any additional information. And if so, where I can get it.
Use su as you're supposed to:
$ su -
The former will also change the environment variables to those of the root user.
Yup, that fixed it. Thank you for the quick response. I've never had to add the "-" in older versions of unetbootin.
