KDE 3.2.2 authority problem

Hi,

I am having problems when using tools in the new KDE 3.2.2.  When trying to go into administrator mode, the password is always rejected.  I end up opening a terminal and su to root and then launch the app, rather than fight with it.  I get the pw rejection in control centre, and also add ons, like k3b setup.

Any ideas?

I think this could have been avoided if kde had gone to testing.

depends:

- it's a kde bug and not a bug of the pkgs ... i will patch the kdelibs asap - the kde-source has this trouble with kdesu

- uploading kde pkgs to the server takes about 18 hours ... uploading it 2 times (for testing and then for current) would take 36 hours ... but i'm not 24h online and over the day i study at the uni, so it would take over a week to upload all stuff 2 times

Re: KDE 3.2.2 authority problem

isn't it somehow possible to only upload the file that contains the kdesu program?? if you tag that as 3.2.2-2 and leave the rest as 3.2.2-1?

of course it is: i will rebuild only the kdelibs ... all others should be fine ... kdebase perhaps needs rebuild too, as it depends a lot on functions from kdelibs, but this i have to test how much it changes the situation with kdesu --- no trouble

with the trouble uploading i meant that the week i do update kde, i'm uploading the whole time and have no internet access (while uploading) --- but for only one pkg, it is no problem letting it upload for some hours :-)

sorry, didnt have time to patch kdelibs till now ... had lectures the whole day - if i dont fall asleep, maybe i'll do it in the next 2 hours

I didn't know that. I thought there was a way of copying files from testng to current (something like cp). Anyway, thanks for your work.
