Description of problem:
rpm works in command line mode but not in GUI mode.
When I click on RedHat --> SystemSettings --> Packages (logged in as root), the
window opens witn the message "Cheking for installed packages" and then closes.
Here are the messages in the system log:

here is the message on the terminal:
