With up2date-2.9.61-1, I get

[kaboom@skuld kaboom]$ up2date

** (up2date:2142): WARNING **: gdk_keyboard_grab returned 3
[kaboom@skuld kaboom]$

ugh. Now that I havent a freaking clue where it comes from.

Any what screen that shows up at?
Comment 2 Chris Ricker 2002-09-01 00:08:51 EDT
There wasn't really a screen associated with it.  I typed up2date at the prompt,
the "enter the root password" box came up, I typed the root password, a couple
of seconds later the error appeared in my shell, and a couple of seconds after
that the "go away, the server's busy" error box appeared.
Comment 3 Chris Ricker 2002-09-01 00:28:08 EDT
Hmm, I take that back.  I just tried it again, and what I see is:

I type up2date
warning appears as "login as root" box appears

If I hit cancel on the authentication, and then run up2date a 2nd time, it
doesn't appear again when the "login as root" box appears the 2nd time.
Comment 4 Adrian Likins 2002-09-01 00:47:33 EDT
hmm, sounds more like a "usermode" bug to me...

bouncing there....
Comment 5 Chris Ricker 2002-10-19 08:57:16 EDT
I'm still seeing this on a RHL 8 box with:


I'm running KDE on that machine.  It might be Yet Another Thing which works on
RH under GNOME but not KDE?

Chris, this warning is no more present with installed usermode-1.76.
